Synthesis, structural and photophysical properties of phosphorescent oligonuclear complexes of monovalent coinage metals with novel compositions
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is a study of monovalent coinage metal complexes made of small molecules and metallopolymers. It has 54pp, 1 table, 38 figures and the references for organometallic and metallopolymers of group 11 elements. It discusses four main chapters describing the synthesis; structure and photophysical studies of luminescent small molecules and metallopolymers of gold (I), Silver (I) and copper (I). Chapter one discusses the introduction to photophysics, coordination and spectroscopy of luminescent novel gold (I) silver (I) and copper (I) complexes. The second chapter involves synthesis, structural and photophysical studies of highly phosphorescent Au (I) small molecules and metallopolymers. Chapter three involves synthesis, structure and photophysical studies of Au (I) and Ag (I) mixed metal pyrazolate complexes. The fourth chapter discusses the study of the photophysical properties of new hydrogenless copper (I) and silver (I) pyrazolate complexes toward potential use as luminescent sensors for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and other environmental pollutants.
