Abstract

New ligands with a bidentate bipyridyl (bpy) and a tetradentate bispidine (bisp) subunit (bipyridyl = 2,2′-bipyridine derivative, bispidine = 3,7-diazabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane derivative) and their heterodinuclear {[Ru(bpy)3]2+-[M(bisp)]2+} complexes (M = Cu2+, Fe2+) were prepared and characterized. The luminescence of the mononuclear RuII complexes (metal-free bisp subunit) is efficiently quenched in presence of CuII. An EPR spectroscopic study reveals thatvisible light irradiation does not alter the oxidation states of the two metal ions in {[Ru(bpy)3]2+-[Cu(bisp)]2+}, i.e. there is energy rather than electron transfer. The heterodinuclear {[Ru(bpy)3]2+-[Cu(bisp)]2+} complex shows a significantphotocatalytic activity in the aziridination of styrene.
