Title: Decarboxylation of 2,2’-Bipyridinyl-4,4’-dicarboxylic acid diethyl ester during microwave synthesis of the corresponding trichelated ruthenium complex

Abstract

Microwave reaction of RuCl3 with 2,2’-bipyridinyl-4,4’-dicarboxylic acid diethyl ester (debpy) in ethylene glycol generated Ru(bpy)32+ instead of the expected Ru(debpy)32+. GCMS analysis of the head space revealed CO2, and Ru(bpy)32+ was recovered from the filtrate. Further experiments suggest that RuCl3 decarboxylates the debpy during microwave synthesis.
