Half-sandwich rhodium complexes supported by the pentamethylcyclopentadienyl (Cp*) ligand are attracting renewed interest in studies of coordination chemistry and catalysis. These compounds have recently been shown to undergo unique and useful [Cp*]-centered protonation reactions following two-electron reduction from the RhIII state to the formally RhI state. However, the intermediate one-electron reduced compounds involved in these processes are typically unstable and cannot be directly observed during electrochemistry due to occurrence of ECE′-type electrode processes. In their Feature Article, Moore et al. show that use of the 4,4′-dinitro-2,2′-bipyridyl ligand (dnbpy) on the [Cp*Rh] framework enables generation and direct observation of such an unusual, singly-reduced species.
