The new tripodal ligand tris(picolyl-2-carboxyamido-6-pyridyl) methanol (L1) has been synthesised via a Pd-catalysed amidocarbonylation reaction in good yield (64%). The ligand has been shown to readily form mononuclear complexes with both Fe(II) and Zn(II). Continuous Shape Mapping calculations have also been performed which confirm the ligands ability to enforce near-perfect trigonal prismatic co-ordination environments upon each of these metal ions. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.
