Quantification of the Steric Properties of 1,8-Naphthyridine Based Ligands in Dinuclear Complexes



Steric properties of ligands are an important parameter for tuning the reactivity of the corresponding complexes. For various ligands used in mononuclear complexes, methods have been developed to quantify their steric bulk. In this work we present an expansion of the buried volume and G-parameter to quantify the steric properties of 1,8-napthyridine based dinuclear complexes. Using this methodology, we explored the tuneability of the steric properties associated with these ligands and complexes.
