Metal coordination, and metal–ligand redox non-innocence, modulates allosteric C–N bond homolysis in an N-benzyl tetrazine

Author affiliations

Abstract

Remote coordination of a Ru(hfac)2 moiety to a chelating N-benzyl tetrazine lowers the C–N homolytic bond dissociation enthalpy by approximately 20 kJ mol−1. The significant bond strength perturbation is believed to arise as a consequence of metal–ligand redox non-innocence.
