Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
We report in this Communication the isolation and characterization, including structure determinations, of 2,2‘,6‘,2‘ ‘-terpyridine (2) and 2,2‘-bipyridine (3) ligands bearing two redox-active “(η2-dppe)(η5-C5Me5)FeC⋮C−” moieties grafted to the 5 and 5‘ ‘ positions of terpy or to the 5 and 5‘ positions of bipy. These “metalloligands” have been complexed with Ru(II) and Mo(0), providing new heterotrinuclear complexes displaying intense absorptions around 700 and 600 nm, respectively, for the Fe2Ru/terpy and Fe2Mo/bipy species. In both cases, the Fe(II)/Fe(III) oxidation potentials of the free ligands became more positive by more than 50 mV upon complexation.
