It′s all relative: A family of ruthenium complexes containing polypyridyl and carbene ligands has been prepared and characterized from structural, spectroscopic, and redox viewpoints. A correlation between ΔE1/2—the difference between E1/2(RuIV/III) and E1/2(RuIII/II)—and the activity and selectivity of some catalytic oxidation processes has been established. A correlation between the number of carbene ligands and ΔE1/2 was also found (see figure).
