Synthesis and Study of Molecular Dyads From Isocyano Rhenium(I) Diimine Luminophores
DescriptionThe design and synthesis of luminescent transition metal complexes have led to applications in many areas. In this project, new classes of dyads systems through the coupling of donor and acceptor systems selected from two different inorganic chromophores or the combination of organic and inorganic chromophores will be designed and synthesized. In the proposed molecular dyads, bridging isocyanide ligands with different spacers together with our recently developed luminescent isocyano rhenium(I) diimine chromophores will be employed as these complexes are readily tunable and show intriguing excited state properties. The electronic communication, electron and energy transfer processes between the two metal centers or the donor and acceptor moieties in these dyads systems will be investigated by cyclic voltammetry, transient absorption spectroscopy and time-resolved emission spectroscopy. Structure-property relationship of different electron transfer and energy transfer processes associated with the different spacers in the bridging ligands will also be investigated.
