dc.description.abstract During the attempts to carry out Suzuki coupling reactions, the σ-bonded Pd−Caryl benzochalcogenadiazolyl complexes trans-[ClPd(PPh3)2(C6H2BrN2E)] (E = S, Se) were isolated. The corresponding bromo derivatives were also synthesized on purpose to investigate their activity in Stille coupling reactions. A head-to-tail dimer trans- [{ClPd(PPh3)(μ-C6H2BrN2Se)}2] was synthesized from the thermolysis of trans- [ClPd(PPh3)2(C6H2BrN2Se)] in the presence of SeO2. The reduction potentials of the mononuclear and dinuclear complexes were measured by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and square wave voltammetry (SWV). 4,7-bis(2/4-pyridyl)benzochalcogenadiazole ligands were synthesized by Stille coupling reactions and the 1,5-bis(4-pyridyl)naphthalene ligand was prepared by a Suzuki coupling reaction. Reactions of the labile complex [BrRe(CO)4(NCMe)] with 4,7-bis(4- pyridyl)benzochalcogenadiazole ligands in a 2:1 ratio afforded self-assembled molecular rods [{ReBr(CO)4}2(μ-4,7-bis(4-pyridyl)benzochalcogenadiazoles)]. Palladium directed molecular squares [(enPd)(μ-4,7-bis(4-pyridyl)benzochalcogenadiazole)]4[PF6]8 were prepared by reactions of enPd(PF6)2 and 4,7-bis(4-pyridyl)benzochalco-genadiazoles in a 1:1 ratio. The optoelectronic properties of the ligands and the molecular rods were investigated by CV and SWV, and by luminescence spectroscopy. The optical properties of the square complexes were also studied by luminescence spectroscopy. en_US
