Abstract

Ligands based on a [1,4]dioxocino[6,5-b:7,8-b0]dipyridine (doxpy) core were prepared and characterized. They all present two equal chelating moieties each one including one N, O, or S donor in addition to a pyridinic nitrogen. These ligands displayed high selectivity for the formation of binuclear complexes. At least one d8 ion (PdII or PtII) complex was prepared for each type of ligand. The stereochemical behavior of the ligands is discussed on the basis of NMR spectra. Stable atropoisomers were obtained in the case of N-oxides or in case chiral centers were introduced in the ethereal bridge. As for the complexes, stable enantiomers appear to be in principle attainable for all the new compounds. A test on the cooperative ability of two PdII centers has been grounded on the microstructure of the styrene/CO copolymer catalytically produced by a binuclear pyridine-imino complex. In fact, comparison with the microstructure of the copolymers produced by related single-site mono- and (open-chain) binuclear catalysts reveals significant difference, thus giving indication of possible synergic metal activity.
