Epub 2016 May 24.The reaction of cis-bis(2,2'-bipyridine)dichlororuthenium(ii) hydrate with a conformationally mobile bipyridyl macrocycle afforded [(bpy)2Ru(μ-L)Ru(bpy)2]Cl4·6H2O, a bridged di-Ru complex. Single crystal X-ray diffraction showed the macrocyclic ligand adopting a bowl-like structure with the exo-coordinated Ru(ii) centers separated by 7.29 Å. Photophysical characterization showed that the complex absorbs in the visible region (λmax = 451 nm) with an emission maximum at 610 nm (τ = 706 ns, ΦPL = 0. Read More
