Ligand Design toward Multifunctional Substrate Reductive Transformations

A new proton-responsive pincer ligand with 5-hydroxypyrazole (L) arms and its silylated version (Si2L) are described. One bis-pincer (L2)Fe2+ complex was obtained and shows OH protons involved in hydrogen bonding and hydrogen/deuterium exchange. The steric bulk on Si2L allows the synthesis of the paramagnetic (Si2L)FeCl2 complex, and further reduction under CO gives the diamagnetic (Si2L)Fe(CO)2 species. A structural comparison, density functional theory calculations, and the X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy binding energies of both iron and nitrogen are analyzed to show details of the locus of reduction.
