Eddy Martin, Marta Martínez Belmonte, Eduardo C. Escudero-Adán and Arjan W. Kleij Exploring the Building-Block Potential of Readily Accessible Chiral [Zn(salen)] Complexes European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry 2014
A convenient method for the synthesis of a series of chiral [Zn(salen)] [salen = N,N′-bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine dianion] complexes based on a 1,2-diphenylethanediamine backbone has been developed. These complexes have been used to assemble multinuclear supramolecular assemblies of which the solid-state and solution properties were determined. These chiral [Zn(salen)] complexes hold promise as molecular building blocks with modular characteristics.
