Comparison of (triphenylphosphine)ruthenium complexes containing the 2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine (trpy) and 4,4′,4′′-tri-t-butyl-2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine (trpy*) ligands

A comparison of (triphenylphosphine)ruthenium(II) complexes containing the 2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine (trpy) and 4,4′,4′′-tri-t-butyl-2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine (trpy*) ligands was conducted. Electronic spectra and electrochemical data readily differentiated the trans- and cis-[RuCl2(trpy or trpy*)(PPh3)]...
