The synthesis is reported of a binuclear ruthenium(II) bis(2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine) complex for which the polytopic ligand incorporates a central, torsionally-constrained biphenylene group. In principle, the dihedral angle between the two phenylene rings can be controlled by the length of the constraining strap. © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
