Abstract

A Re(I) complex of 3,3′-diamino-2,2′-bipyridine reacts irreversibly with aldehydes and unhindered ketones in water to form bis-aminal cyclised derivatives with the solid-state structure of the reaction with benzaldehyde reported. This reaction produces a Re(I) complex which is significantly more emissive than the starting compound.
