Abstract

Deprotonation of 2,6- bis( arylimidazolium) pyridine dibromide with KN( SiMe3)(2) gave thermally stable 2,6-bis(arylimidazol-2-ylidene) pyridine, which was further used to prepare ruthenium 'pincer' complexes; the latter show catalytic activity in transfer hydrogenation of carbonyl compounds.
