Synthesis and Spectroscopic Studies of Supramolecular Structures Constructed from Allenylidene-metalloligand
DescriptionThis project is concerned with the synthesis and spectroscopic study of supramolecular systems with Fe/Ru/Os cumulene complexes as metalloligands. Cumulene complexes are of recent research interest because thep-conjugated cumulene chain would allow electron/charge-transfer between metal centres and remote functional groups, and thus their potential application as molecular wires has been proposed. In this project, the researchers plan to synthesize a series of rod-like supramolecular complexes with [(Fe/Ru/Os)=C=C=CR2] (R = binding/ligating-functional-group) as basic building blocks. The detailed structural, electrochemical, photo-physical, and theoretical studies on these supramolecular systems should provide insight for designing new molecular electronic components based on organometallic complexes.
