Abstract

A series of ruthenium(II) orthometallated aminocarbene complexes have been synthesized and characterized. Their electrochemistry, electronic absorption, emission, and the crystal structures of [Ru(phen)2{=C(CH2Ph)NHC6H4}]CF 3SO3, [Ru(bpy)2{=C(CH2Ph)NMeC6H4}]PF 6 and [Ru(bpy)2{=C(CH2C4H3S)NHC 6H4}]CF3SO3 have been studied. The nature of the electronic transitions and the origin of the emission are discussed and an assignment of a 3MLCT emission has been supported by EHMO studies.
