Abstract

The deprotection of a common precursor moiety in dithiolene chemistry was discovered to be fully reversible, which, besides being relevant for researchers working in very different fields with these non-innocent ligand systems, may even have an impact on CO2 housekeeping, as the deprotected ligand acts as an efficient trap.
