Abstract

Two novel luminescent rhenium(I) complexes, [Re(dppz)(CO) 3(py)](OTf) 1 and [Re(dppn)(CO)3(py)](OTf) 2 are synthesized and their photophysical properties studied; X-ray structural studies of 2 reveal a highly planar dppn ligand which may account for the interaction of 1 and 2 with double-stranded calf thymus DNA.
