A new asymmetric pentadentate ligand was designed to impose low symmetry to trivalent ions. Five-coordinate Fe3+ and Ga3+ complexes were investigated by crystallographic, electrochemical, and electron paramagnetic resonance methods showing enhanced redox reversibility. Calculations were performed to account for the observed trends.
