Arm, K.J. & Williams, J.A.G. (2006). A cross-coupling strategy for the synthesis of dimetallic assemblies containing mixed bipyridine–terpyridine bridging ligands: luminescence and energy transfer properties. Dalton Transactions (18): 2172-2174.

Author(s) from Durham


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).
