Dynamic axial ligand-site exchange in facially discriminated ruthenium(II) carbonyl and rhodium(III) halide metalloporphyrins
Gunter, Maxwell & Mullen, Kathleen (2007) Dynamic axial ligand-site exchange in facially discriminated ruthenium(II) carbonyl and rhodium(III) halide metalloporphyrins. Inorganic Chemistry: including bioinorganic chemistry, 46(12), pp. 4876-4886.
For a series of six-coordinate Ru(II)(CO)L or Rh(III)(X–)L porphyrins which are facially differentiated by having a naphthoquinol- or hydroquinol-containing strap across one face, we show that ligand migration from one face to the other can occur under mild conditions, and that ligand site preference is dependent on the nature of L and X–. For bulky nitrogen-based ligands, the strap can be displaced sideways to accommodate the ligand on the same side as the strap. For the ligand pyrazine, we show 1 H NMR evidence for monodentate and bidentate binding modes on both faces, dependent on ligand concentration and metalloporphyrin structure, and that inter-facial migration is rapid under normal conditions. For monodentate substituted pyridine ligands there is a site dependence on structure, and we show clear evidence of dynamic ligand migration through a series of ligand exchange reactions.
