Iridium complexes of the doubly cyclometalated NHC ligand IMes′′

By Janeth Navarro, Olga Torres, Marta Martín and Eduardo Sola


Two consecutive C–H bond activations at the coordination sphere of Ir transform the commonly employed NHC ligand IMes into the new κ3-C fac-coordinating ligand IMes′′. The preparation and structure of Ir(III) complexes featuring this ligand together with selected reactions toward small molecules that illustrate their reactivity keys are described.This research was supported by the Spanish MICINN (Grants CTQ2009-08023 and Consolider Ingenio 2010 INTECAT CSD2006-0003) and Gobierno de Aragón (Group E79 and Project PI007/09).Peer Reviewe
