Abstract

Bioinspired pentadentate ligand N-confused porphyrin (NCP) bearing a 2-mercaptopyridine group and its RuII and CoIII complexes were synthesized. Their structures were revealed by single-crystal X-ray crystallographic analysis. Installation of an axial thiopyridine ligand shifts the redox potentials negatively and enhances the catalytic activity largely, which was demonstrated in the cyclopropanation reaction using the Co complex.
