For several years, our research group has been developing cyano-substituted polypyrazolylborate ligands, also called cyanoscorpionate ligands. In previous work, we have demonstrated that cyanoscorpionate ligands have the ability to facilitate the synthesis of polymeric materials via coordination to both the cyano and the pyrazole N atoms. Due to the electron-withdrawing nature of the cyano substituent, the cyanoscorpionate ligand also has the potential to alter the electronic structure and properties of the coordinated metal. In this work we report our current progress in this area, which includes new heteroleptic sandwich complexes of Co, Ni and Mn.
