Abstract

Abstract The synthesis of coordination compounds of ruthenium(II) containing the new tridentate ligand 4,4′,4″,-tri-tert- butyl-terpyridine (trpy*) is reported. Trpy* has been prepared in up to 50% yield from tert-butyl-pyridine, and easily separated from 4,4′-di-tert-butyl-bipyridine (bpy*). A series of complexes [(trpy*)(L 2)RuX] + (L 2bpy; bpy*; X −Cl −, CF 3SO 3−) and [(trpy*)(L 2)RuOH 2] 2+ (L 2bpy; bpy*) were obtained from (trpy*)RuCl 3. Individual complexes have been characterized by elemental analyses, 1H NMR and UV-Vis spectroscopies, and cyclic voltammetry.
