Abstract

In this work a new water-soluble long-lifetime chemosensor, containing a polyamine unit connected to a complexed Ru(II) metal center, is described. Its crystal structure has been characterized by X-ray analysis. The polyamine macrocyclic unit is capable of anchoring cationic or anionic substrates, according to its protonation state. Examples of electron transfer involving the ruthenium complex core and the bound substrate are presented. The photocatalytic ability of such a system is illustrated by the oxidation of iodide to iodine promoted by light absorption at 436 nm.
