At the right places: Owing to substitution-lability difference in disparate metal centers, an oxo-centered heterometallic trinuclear acetato complex [Ru2MgO(CH3COO)6(Py)3] (py=pyridine; see picture) undergoes site-selective substitution of propionates and ferrocenycarboxylates in a stepwise manner. The new substituted families have been successfully separated by chromatography and fully characterized. (Chemical Figure Presented)
