A Study of Bis (Amido) Pyridine Coordination Chemistry to Ruthenium and Cobalt Metals
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis presents the work to study and expand the coordination chemistry of bis(amido)pyridine to ruthenium and cobalt. Chapter 1 presents the properties, the coordination chemistry and the synthesis of the bis(amido)pyridine ligand. Chapter 2 focuses on experimental procedures to synthesize bis(amido)pyridine-supported ruthenium complexes. Chapter 3 focuses on the coordination of the ligand to cobalt(III) where a series of low-valent Co(III) square planar complexes supported by the dianionic ligand is reported.
