Synthesis and spectroscopic properties of group 11 coordination polymers with mixed pyrazolate/diimine ligands
This thesis is a study of coinage metal complexes with various bridging diimine ligands. It has 91 pp, 8 tables, 65 figures, and references for the study of group 11 elements. It discusses one main project and is divided into three chapters describing in general the synthesis, structure, and spectroscopic studies of silver (I) and copper (I) complexes. Chapter I presents an introduction to the chemistry of trinuclear azolate complexes of group 11 metals, trinuclear azolate complexes of group 11 metals, linearly-bridging diimines, mixed metal and mixed ligands for group 11 complexes, and their potential applications, including metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), solar cells, and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Chapter II describes the synthesis of d10 coinage metal complexes with different organic building ligands. Chapter III discusses the structural characterization and spectroscopy, including x-ray crystallography, photoluminescence, 1HNMR, FT-IR, absorption spectroscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis, of silver complexes, copper complexes, mixed-metal complexes, and mixed-ligand complexes. It also summarizes the conclusion of the results obtained in Chapter II and the expected applications.
