Unexpected Reactivity of a PONNOP ‘Expanded Pincer’ Ligand



We report the synthesis, characterization and coordination chemistry of a new naphthyridine-derived phosphinite PONNOP expanded pincer ligand. As envisioned, the dinucleating ligand readily binds two copper(I) centers in close proximity, but undergoes an unexpected rearrangement in the presence of nickel(II) salts to form an interesting PONNP pincer platform.
