Ligand-modulated ring-expansion

Author affiliations


An unstrained palladium-containing macrocycle was expanded by a ring-opening metathesis strategy. This reaction was driven by coordination of a bulky ligand, 2,6-lutidine, to the palladium center, enabling a monometallic macrocycle to transform into a bimetallic dimeric macrocycle.
