Abstract

The second-generation Janus scorpionate ligand [HB(mtdaMe)3] containing methyl-mercaptothiadiazolyl (mtdaMe) heterocyclic rings and (N,N,N-) and (S,S,S-) binding pockets has been prepared. The effect of methyl substitution versus the unsubstituted first-generation Janus scorpionate [HB(mtda)3]− on the coordination chemistry with alkali metals and on the binding preferences and on the ground spin state of iron(II) complexes has been studied structurally and by 57Fe Mossbauer Spectroscopy.
