Abstract

We have prepared and characterized five unreported ruthenium(II) and iridium(III) complexes supported by pyridine-functionalized N-heterocyclic carbene ligands including a bimetallic iridium(III) complex. When activated, all complexes are active catalysts for the transfer hydrogenation of acetophenone.
