Abstract

{The electrochemical and photophysical properties of a series of Ru(II) complexes related to {[}Ru(dcbpyH(2))(2)(ppy)(1+) (1; dcbpyH(2) = 4,4'-dicarboxy-2,2'-bipyridine; ppy = 2-phenylpyridine) were examined to elucidate the effect of modifying the anionic fragment of the (CN)-N-boolean AND ligand with conjugated substituents (R). Included in this study is a family of compounds (2-5) consisting of one or two -NO2 groups installed meta, ortho, and para to the organometallic bond. A suite of compounds with electron-donating and withdrawing groups (e.g.
