Abstract

Metallation of a pentadentate diNHC proligand bearing a dipropyl-pyridine-2,6-dicarboxamide with silver and gold affords mono- and dinuclear, double-stranded bis(NHC) complexes as useful building blocks for metallo-supramolecules. The digold(I) complex acts as a metallo-bis(pincer) ligand to furnish the first example of an organometallic NHC-helicate upon coordination to cobalt.
