Abstract

'Hangman-type' PNP pincer ligands and their associated Ru complexes undergo sp2-sp3 C-C bond cleavage and subsequent C-C formation processes to form a new, one carbon unit longer backbone motif. DFT and mechanistic studies suggest a mechanism dependent upon arm pyridine coordination and ligand sterics.
