Abstract

A series of luminescent functionalized ruthenium polypyridine complexes with orthometallated aminocarbene ligands has been synthesized and their photophysical properties studied. The cation-binding properties of one crown-ether functionalized complexes have also been studied. The X-ray crystal structures of [Ru(bpy)2=C(CH2-B15C5)NHC6H3Br]OTf and [Ru(5,5′-Me2bpy)2=C(CH2Ph)NHC6 H3Br]OTf have been determined (bpy = 2,2′-bipyridine; 5,5′-Me2bpy = 5,5′-dimethyl-2,2′-bipyridine; B15C5 = benzo-15-crown-5).
