Abstract

Five ruthenium complexes bearing phenylazo-(2-(phenylthio))phenylmethine ligands of the general type trans-[RuII(bpy)(L)(Cl)2] (C1-C5) {L = YC6H4N=NC-(COCH3)=NC 6H4(2-SC6H5), H (L1), Cl (L2), OCH3 (L3), Br (L4), or NO2 (L5)} have been synthesized. The crystal structure of trans-[Ru(bpy)(L1)(Cl)2] (C1) is reported and shows no direct metal-S interaction. The complexes have been characterized through spectroscopic (IR, UV/vis and NMR) and electrochemical (CV) techniques. The electrochemical parameters (EL(L)) of the azoimine ligands are reported.
