Ruthenium Pincer Complexes
What is it about?
Definitions of pincer ligands and their nomenclature are presented. Modification of the pincer backbone to control steric and electronic properties. Design of pincer ligands based on pyridine, benzene, etc. for ruthenium pincer complexes (RPCs). Synthesis of RPCs via direct metallation, C/Sisingle bondH bond activation, trans-metallation, and trans-cyclometallation. Key RPC structures affect the catalyst behavior in catalytic hydrogenation reactions.
