New possible mode of ligand-metal cooperation in PC(sp(3))P pincer complexes Academic Article uri icon


  • Ligand–metal cooperation in iridium and platinum complexes bearing tricyclic dibenzobarrelene-based PC (sp3) P pincer ligands is discussed. We demonstrated that the carbon–metal bond in these complexes may be efficiently cleaved and regenerated via1, 2- addition/elimination reactions.
