4,4′,5,5′-Tetrakis(guanidinyl)binaphthyl – Synthesis and Properties of Two Redox-Active Ligands and Oxidative C–C Coupling to Perylene Derivatives

Authors


Abstract

We report the synthesis and properties of the new redox-active ligands 4,4′,5,5′-tetrakis(tetramethylguanidinyl)binaphthyl and 4,4′,5,5′-tetrakis(N,N′-dimethylethyleneguanidinyl)binaphthyl. The first dinuclear zinc complexes were prepared. Oxidative C–C coupling of these compounds leads to perylene derivatives.
