A series of novel rhenium(I) 2,2'-bipyridyl complexes [fac-Re(4,4'-di-COOEt-bpy)-(CO)(3)(Xpy)PF6], where bpy is 2,2'-bipyridine, py is pyridine and X is 3-methyl, 3-hydroxy, or 3-amino, were synthesized, their photophysical and electrochemical properties were studied. The Re(II/I) oxidation potentials decreased as the X group becomes more electron donating from H to 3-methyl, 3-hydroxy, or 3-amino, which might be a very convenient ways for adjusting the electron transfer driving force.
