Abstract

This report examines the synthesis of new ligands based upon dipyrazolylmethane and diindazolylmethane. The goal of these modifications is to increase the acidity of the proton on the methyl carbon to allow for deprotonation. The ligands synthesized were dipyrazolylphenylmethane and diindazolylphenylmethane, as well as modifications of the latter. The products were analyzed by NMR spectroscopy and one crystal structure was obtained of diindazolylphenylmethane.
