The Taiji and Eight Trigrams chemistry philosophy of chiral iridium(III) complexes with triplex stereogenic centers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Four novel chiral iridium(III) complexes with triplex stereogenic centers were synthesized by introducing chiral carbon atoms into cyclometalated and ancillary ligands, and separated into eight isomers, which coincide with the old Chinese philosophy Eight Trigrams. The electron circular dichroism and circularly polarized luminescence spectra of four pairs of isomers show perfect mirror images with a dissymmetry factor (glum factor) of around 0.003.
