Abstract

This thesis presents 4¢-substituted-2,2¢:6¢,2²-terpyridine ligands and their complexes
within the perspective for supramolecular chemistry.
Chapter 1 gives a brief introduction to supramolecular chemistry,
metallosupramolecular chemistry, 2,2¢:6¢,2²-terpyridine complexes and dynamic
combinatorial libraries.
Chapter 2 discusses the synthesis and characterisation of ligands L1-L9 containing
one 2,2¢:6¢,2²-terpyridine metal-binding domain. These ligands contain different
substituents at the 4¢-position of the 2,2¢:6¢,2²-terpyridine which differ from one
another in the length of the chains, in the linkages of the chains or in the terminal
domains.
Chapter 3 describes the synthesis and characterisation of the mononuclear iron(II)
and ruthenium(II) complexes formed with L1-L9.
Chapter 4 describes the synthesis and characterisation of the mononuclear cobalt(II)
complexes formed with L1-L9. A newly established method for the NMR
spectroscopic assignment of Co(II) complexes, and some preliminary studies of
combinatorial libraries by mixing two Co(II) complexes, are also discussed.
Chapter 5 discusses the synthesis and characterisation of ligands L10-L17, which
contain two 2,2¢:6¢,2²-terpyridine metal-binding domains. These two 2,2¢:6¢,2²-
terpyridine metal-binding domains are linked by different naphthalene
bis(ethyleneoxy) spacers at their 4¢-positions.
Chapter 6 discusses the synthesis and characterisation of dinuclear ruthenium(II)
complexes formed by ligands L11-L14, L16-L17.
Chapter 7 describes the synthesis and characterisation of [n+n] ruthenium(II) and
iron(II) metallomacrocycles which formed by cyclisation reactions involving ligands
L11-L17.
