Abstract

Hydrogen-bonding pyrazolyl and imidazolyl motifs are incorporated into organoplatinum(II) complexes and found to be harmonized with extended π - π and PtII ...PtII interactions to align the planar cations into a quasi-1-D columnar structure or a quasi-2D framework. A field-effect electron mobility up to 20 cm2V-1s-1 has been recorded with a single-microcrystal transistor. In addition, crystalline samples of one of the organoplatinum(II) complexes show intriguing thermoluminescent and vapoluminescent properties. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.
