New Paper: Ambiphilic Bi-M bonding in a geometrically constrained PBiP pincer ligand

Our paper on the construction of a geometrically constrained Bi pincer ligand just got published in Chem. Sci.

Here we demonstrate how to construct pincer ligand with a strictly T-shaped central Bi donor moiety. Computational analysis of its transition metal complexes reveals unusual bonding interactions due to the coupling of the redox non-innocent ligand backbone with the planarized Bi center.
