Abstract

Tridentate-chelating ligands, known as pincer ligands, have long been studied in their support of a wide array of transition and main group metals. Among the many types of pincer ligands, NNN-pincer based ligand systems and their derivatives are attractive targets in coordination and organometallic chemistry. NNN-pincer chemistry benefits from facile modification of the ligand backbone, reduced tendency to be oxidized under aerobic conditions compared to P-donor type of ligands, and support of metal centers of varying size and charge. Herein, we present a series of iron, vanadium, and gallium complexes.
