Various mono- and bis-ZnII complexes derived from salphen ligands have been conveniently transmetalated with a number of transition metal (TM) acetates (M = Ni, Pd, Mn) in THF to afford their respective TM−salphen counterparts in excellent isolated yields (80−100%). This new transmetalation procedure allows in situ switching between supramolecular and catalytic functions of the metallosalphen complex.
