Atropisomerism in a thermally switchable, cyclometallated iridium complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two stable diastereomeric atropisomers of a cyclometallated iridium complex containing a pyrene functionalized pyridine imine ligand have been isolated. These are the first fully characterized examples of metal containing atropisomers in which the rotational axis is not between two chelating atoms. The atropisomers can be converted thermally via a rocking motion of the pyrene moiety.
