Platinum(II) Terpyridine Complex That Switches Its Photochemical Reactivity in Response to Its Chromic Behavior in the Crystalline State
A platinum(II) terpyridine complex having an enantiopure lactate anion afforded hydrated crystals L or D-1(hyd) containing infinite chains of interacting Pt centers, while their dehydration induced crystal-to-crystal transformation into L- or D-1(dehyd), respectively, exhibiting less significant Pt-Pt and/or ligand-ligand interactions. That transformation was accompanied by changes in the color as well as the photochemical reactivity of the crystals, where L-1(dehyd) showed higher reactivity than L-1(hyd) in the presence of amines under visible-light irradiation.
