Template Synthesis of a Macrocyclic Ligand
Last Update: August 29, 2011
The procedure for this synthesis is exactly that given in Chipperfield and Woodward’s article.1 Prepare and characterize the nickel macrocycle, and then remove the metal to give the free ligand (characterize it also). From the free ligand prepare a different metal complex (your choice) and characterize it.
