The remarkable progress is due to a large extent to the well-defined nature and tunability of the pincer ligand which allows the reactivity of the metal center to be modified and eventually tailored to specific needs. This Perspective summarizes the achievements in employing pincer complexes for mediating and catalyzing the cleavage of typically unreactive bonds such as C–H, C–C, C–E, and E–H bonds, arguably one of the most spectacular applications of pincer chemistry.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Royal Society of Chemistry||Copyright (published version):||2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry||Keywords:||Pincer ligands;Bond activation;Water splitting||DOI:||10.1039/C1DT10339C||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
