The stereoselective synthesis of a highly luminescent neutral Ir(III) complex comprising two bidentate chiral, cyclometalating phenylpyridine derivatives, and one acetylacetonate as ligands is described. The final complex and some intermediates were characterized by X-ray structural analysis, NMR-, CD-, and CPL-spectroscopy.

A C₂-symmetric enantiopure 4,5-bis(pinene)-2,2′-bipyridine ligand (–)-L was used to investigate the diastereoselectivity in the formation of [ML₃]²⁺ coordination species (M = Fe(II), Ru(II), Os(II), Zn(II), Cd(II), Cu(II), Ni(II)), and [ML₂Cl₂] (M = Ru(II), Os(II)). The X-ray structures of the [ML₃]²⁺ complexes were determined for Δ-[FeL₃](PF₆)₂,...
