Design and photophysical characterizations of new copper(I) and silver(I) mixed ligand complexes with “green chemistry” incorporation
This thesis is a study of mixed ligand coinage metal complexes. It has 122 pages, 68 figures, 14 tables, and the references. It discusses one main project divided by three chapters describing in general the synthesis, structure and spectroscopic studies of silver (I) and copper (I) complexes. Chapter I discusses the introduction to trinculear pyrazolate complexes of d10 coinage metals, N-donor heterocyclic ligands, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon ligand, mixed-metal and mixed-ligand complexes. It also investigates the impact of structural factors and various synthetic conditions on photophysical properties as well as the potential applications including sensors for (VOCs), metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), solar cells and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Chapter II involves both solvent-mediated and solvent-less synthetic routes of silver (I) and copper (I) complexes and mixed-metal and mixed-ligand complexes and their characterization through elemental analysis, x-ray crystallography, melting point, photoluminescence, 1H NMR, FT-IR, absorption spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis. Chapter III summarizes the conclusion of the results obtained in chapter II and the expected applications of similar compounds in the industry.
