This reagent, which bears three equivalent ketones proved a convenient scaffold onto which 1, 2 or even 3 anilines can be condensed (Fig. 5). Regardless of how many condensations reactions take place on the scaffold, only two of the groups can coordinate to a metal center, leaving a third free to interact with other species [41]. Additionally, after deprotonation, the ligand becomes conjugated, allowing for efficient transfer of electron density from the metal center to the exocyclic group. Fig.
