The synthesis of a series of Rh(i) and Ir(i) homobimetallic complexes using three different linking scaffolds is described. The cyclooctadiene (COD) complexes [M2(COD)2(Lscaffold)][BAr F4]2 (2-7) where M = Rh(i) or Ir(i), and L scaffold = bis(1-pyrazolyl)methane ligands, p-C6H 4[CH(pz)2]2 (1a), m-C6H 4[CH(pz)2]2 (1b) and the anthracene-bridged 1,8-C14H8[CH(pz)2]2 (1c) were synthesized. The COD co-ligands of 2-7 were replaced with the carbonyl co-ligands to form the analogous homobimetallic...[Show more]
