Dalton Trans. 2011 Jan 7;40(1):301-4. doi: 10.1039/c0dt00997k. Epub 2010 Nov 11.


Using tetradentate, dianionic ligands, several new rhodium complexes have been prepared. Some of these diamine-bis(phenolate) compounds, are active for C-H activation of benzene. These complexes are air and thermally stable. All four complexes were characterized by X-ray diffraction.
