Redox-Non Innocence / Metal - Ligand Cooperation



Metal - Ligand Cooperation in Re(I) Triscarbonyl Complexes: Simple iminopyridine and amino pyridine ligands allowing for the reversible binding of CO2. Upon two-electron reduction of the former ligand, a very reactive anionic dearomatized Re complex is formed. Likewise, double-deprotonation of the latter ligand leads to the same dearomatized moiety, which reacts reversibly with CO2 under C–C and Re–O bond formation.
