Hanging in there: Unprecedented quantitative formation of a long-lived intermediate 2 that contains a monodentate N N ligand has been observed and the species characterized. Photoreactive ligand loss from a ruthenium(II) tris(chelate) complex 1 leads to 2, which has a half-life of 14 hours. Bn=benzyl.
