On Zn(II) 2,2′-bisdipyrrin circular helicates

Author affiliations


Coordination of two 2,2′-bisdipyrrin ligands, bearing methyl ester or methylthioether peripheral groups, with Zn(II) cations leads not only to the formation of the expected linear helicates but also concomitantly to novel tri- and tetra-nuclear circular species that have been isolated and fully characterized in solution and by X-ray diffraction.
