Fine-Tuning Electronic Properties of Luminescent Pt(II) Complexes via Vertex-Differentiated Coordination of Sterically Invariant Carborane-Based Ligands

We report the synthesis of two isomeric Pt(II) complexes ligated by doubly deprotonated 1,1′-bis(<i>o</i>-carborane) (<b>bc</b>). This work provides a potential route to fine-tune the electronic properties of luminescent metal complexes by virtue of vertex-differentiated coordination chemistry of carborane-based ligands.
