I have synthesized bis(amidine) ligands for metal coordination. At each step, the molecule is characterized by NMR (1H, 13C, DEPTQ135, 2D Experiments). Analyzing with DEPTQ135 should show CH and CH3 peaks as positive, and C and CH2 as negative, and it looks right in the ligand experiment, but after coordination, the expected peaks are reversed, with CH and CH3 as negative, and C and CH2 as positive. Keep in mind, we are seeing the correct number of peaks in the expected regions. Is there any reason aside from a failed coordination experiment that this could happen?
