Metal complexes of “click”-derived tripodal ligands for photochemical and electrochemical bond activation reactions
Tripodal triazole containing ligands designed through Click chemistry provide ideal coordination environments at metal centers for performing photochemical and electrochemical bond activation reactions. In this project we try to tune the electrochemical
and photochemical reactivity at the metal centers through targeted variation of the steric and electronic properties of the tripodal ligands. Advanced photochemical measurements are sometimes carried out with our collaboration partners.
