Abstract

© 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry. Dinuclear silver, di- and tetra-nuclear gold, and mononuclear palladium complexes with chelating C,N,C diethylaminotriazinyl-bridged bis(NHC) pincer ligands were prepared and characterised. The silver and gold complexes exist in a twisted, helical conformation in both the solution- and the solid state. In contrast, an analogous dinuclear gold complex with pyridyl-bridged NHCs exists in a linear conformation. Computational studies have been performed to rationalise the formation of twisted/helical vs. linear forms.
