Let's get cerium: The role of ligand organization in the redox chemistry of CeIII was investigated with a series of cerium(III)/alkali metal/1,1′-binolate (REMB) complexes. The electrochemical properties and chemical reactivity within the REMB framework are tunable through the choice of metal M, and the controlled redox behavior emphasizes the impact of ligand reorganization.
