The cyclometalated iridium dinuclear complex [(ppy)2Ir(μ-L)Ir(ppy)2]2+ (12+) has been prepared by reaction of the precursor complex Ir2(ppy)4Cl2 (ppy = 2-phenylpyridine) with the unusual bridging ligand 3,8-dipyridyl-4,7-phenanthroline as a mixture of three diastereoisomers. Ion-pair chromatography with Δ-TRISPHAT anion (TRISPHAT = tris(tetrachlorobenzenediolato)phosphate(V)) as resolving anion permits the separation of the three stereoisomers. The absorption and emission properties of the three stereoisomers show only very small variations. The anisotropic properties can be interpreted as distinct interactions of the isomers with the chiral resolving Δ-TRISPHAT anion.
