Synthesis and electronic structure studies of a Cr-imido redox series

Author affiliations

Abstract

The effect of metal identity, d-electron count, and coordination geometry on the electronic structure of a metal–ligand multiple bond (MLMB) is an area of active exploration. Although high oxidation state Cr imidos have been extensively studied, very few reports on low-valent Cr imidos or the interconversion of redox isomers exist. Herein, we report the synthesis and characterization of a family of dipyrrinato Cr imido complexes in oxidation states ranging from CrIII to CrV, showcasing the influence of the weak-field dipyrromethene scaffold on the electronic structure and coordination geometries of these Cr imides.
