Chemistry and Pharmacology
Several dimeric 1,2-bis (2,2′-bipyridinyl)ethane (1,2,6,7, and 9 and 1,2-bis(1,10-phenanthrolinyl)) ethane (3,4, and 5) ligands have been synthesized in high yield by oxidative coupling of the corresponding monomeric methylene carbanions using as oxidating agents Br2, I2, and 1,2-dibromoethane. The structure of the compounds obtained from three tetramethyl-2,2′-bipyridines and one tetramethyl-1,10-phenanthroline have been assigned on the basis of their 1H-NMR spectra. The electronic absorption and emission properties of these new ligands are reported. They display intense fluorescence spectra.
