The origin of the very rich coordination chemistry of phenanthridine can be explained in large part due to the very large electronic and structural flexibility of this molecule, which is able to adapt to the electronic demand of the metal. The C6 and C5N rings of phenanthridine can be coordinated in various hapticities, depending on the nature of the ML n moiety. This flexibility favors the possibility of existence of several isomers of comparable energy.
