Mixing solutions of homoleptic cobalt(II) complexes [CoA(2)](2+) and [CoB2](2+) results in the establishment of a combinatorial library containing the heteroleptic complex [CoAB](2+) By using enantiomorphic ligands A and B the reactions may be followed by H-1 NMR spectroscopy. Exchange reactions with 6-substituted ligands are slower than those with 5- and 4-substituted species.
