The first example of electrochemical reductive conversion of coordinated imidazole (imH) to the terminal 3-imidazolato (3-im) ligand is reported for fac-[ReI(imH)(CO)3(bpy)]+ (bpy = 2,2′-bipyridine). Its cathodic conversion to fac-[ReI(3-im)(CO)3(bpy)] was studied by variable-temperature UV/Vis/NIR–IR spectroelectrochemistry in an OTTLE cell.
