- The first example of a CNC pincer ligand with a central pyridinol ligand is reported in a nickel(ii) complex. This metal complex can be protonated or deprotonated reversibly in situ to switch on or off the photocatalytic performance towards CO₂ reduction. The O⁻ substituent appears essential for catalysis.
