Multielectron oxidation in a ferromagnetically coupled dinickel( ii ) triple mesocate Academic Article uri icon


  • Triple-stranded dinuclear nickel(ii) complexes of the meso-helicate type have been obtained from the new N,N'-1,3-phenylenebis(pyrazine-2-carboxamidate) ligand; they possess a multielectron redox behaviour featuring up to four stepwise, one-electron oxidation reactions of the two ferromagnetically coupled Ni(II) ions to afford the putative high-valent dinickel(iii) and dinickel(iv) species, as supported by theoretical calculations.
