Abstract

We designed a novel naphthyridine-based supporting ligand involving two silyl coordinating moieties at 2,7-positions, t-BuNBSi, for the synthesis of dinuclear metal complexes. Reaction of a ligand precursor t-BuNBSi(H)2 (1) with Ru3(CO)12 gave a di-μ-hydridodiruthenium(II,II) complex (t-BuNBSi)Ru2(μ-H)2(CO)4 (2). Photoirradiation to 2 resulted in the formation of a diruthenium(I,I) complex (t-BuNBSi)Ru2(CO)6 (3). The SiRuRuSi linkage of 2 takes a zigzag arrangement, whereas that of 3 adopts a roughly linear one.
