Abstract

We describe Pd(II) and Pt(II) complexes of an N^C^N-coordinating pincer-like ligand featuring two lateral pyridine rings and a 6-membered carbene core. Their crystal structures display 1-dimensional chains with short π–π and M(II)⋯M(II) interactions. Such interactions also impact on the photophysical properties, with the Pt(II) complex being luminescent in the solid state at room temperature.
