Tris-bidentate complexes of the form [Ir(N^C)2(N^N)]+ and [Ru(N^N)3]2+ incorporating a boronic acid substituent (N^C = 2-phenylpyridyl, N^N = a 2,2′-bipyridyl ligand), are cross-coupled with bromo-substituted bis-terpyridyl ruthenium and iridium complexes to generate heterometallic assemblies comprising bpy-ϕn-tpy bridges; they display efficient energy transfer from Ir(III) to Ru(II).
