Molecular twisting: A family of dinuclear Ru complexes of general formula [{Ru(T)(L)}2(μ-bpp)](n+1)+ (T = tridentate meridional ligand; bpp = tetradentate bridging ligand and L = monodentate ligand, n = 1 or 2) have been prepared and thoroughly characterized. In solution these complexes display a global dynamic behavior in which the monodentate ligands undergo a synchronized twisting motion. (Figure Presented) © 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
