Abstract/Artist Statement

To explore new candidates as catalysts in inert bond activation, a new family of tripodal ligands were designed and synthesized to stabilize metallic complexes of special geometry and reactivities. Each of the two new tripod ligands contains three branched built up from one center atom C or N. Both ligands were obtained at relatively high yields and were examined under various metallation conditions. The high basicity of the ligands prevented the preferred bimetallic complexes from forming under non-anhydrous conditions. Reactions under anhydrous conditions gave complexes with a variety of coordination geometry. This study reflected the great capacity of the newly designed ligand set.
