2014_26/2014Synthesis and Redox Properties of PNP Pincer Complexes Based on N-Methyl-4,4'-bipyridinium (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 26/2014)

The cover picture shows the synthesis of novel “metalloviologens” bearing PNP pincer ligands based on N-methyl-4,4'-bipyridinium. These complexes are stable toward two steps of single electron transfer, where p-quinoid-type complexes play a key role. The rhodium complex bearing the PNP pincer ligand based on N-methyl-4,4'-bipyridinium is also found to work as a catalyst for dihydrogen production under photoinduced electron transfer conditions. Details are discussed in the article by Y. Miyake, Y. Nishibayashi et al. on p. 4273 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.
