Throughout this thesis, we study the coordination chemistry of the redox active formazanate ligands to iron and palladium and we explore the (catalytic) reactivity of the resulting complexes toward small molecules. The results here presented provide an in-depth insight into how the formazanate ligands give access to unusual electronic structures that may lead to the development of novel catalytic reactivity, taking advantage of the synergism between redox-active ligands and redox-active metals.
