Dalton Trans. 2016 May 31;45(22):9216-28. doi: 10.1039/c6dt01047d., a series of rhenium(i) tricarbonyl chloride complexes with bpy-R2 derivatives (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine, R represents the substitution at the 4- and 4'-positions), and their corresponding trishomoleptic as well as heteroleptic ruthenium(ii) complexes and have been synthesized and characterized. Their applicability as immobilizable metal-organic chromophores in solar and photosynthesis cells is enabled by R, since it includes phosphonic ester groups as precursors for potent phosphonate anchoring groups.
