4,2':6',4''-terpyridine derivatives

4,2':6',4''-terpyridines possess -- in contrast to the well-established chelating 2,2':6',2''-terpyridines -- only 2 coordination centers, resulting in a V-shaped building block allowing control over metal-organic assemblies (eg. MOFs). With this backbone, and the right interplay of functionalization, substrate, etc. we are seeking to build tunable confined reaction containers on top of a reactive metal catalyst.
