This thesis focuses on the syntheses and characterizations of heteroleptic Cu(I/II) and Ag(I) complexes and coordination polymers with fluorinated-pyrazolate (FPz-) and phenanthrolines (phen) ligands, followed by that of copper(I) iodide-based Cu(I/II) complexes and metallopolyers with the fluorinated-pyrazolate (FPz-) ligand and poly(4-vinylpyridine) (PVP). Chapter I provides an introduction into the chemistry of homoleptic coinage metal-pyrazolate complexes, pyrazolate ligands, phenanthroline ligands, heteroleptic coinage metal complexes, solventless syntheses, copper(I) halide complexes, and poly(4-vinylpyridine), respectively, followed by the potential applications of coinage metal complexes/coordination polymers with the aforementioned ligands. Chapter II discusses the synthetic routes of the aforementioned Cu(I/II) and Ag(I) complexes and metallopolymers with the respective ligands. Chapter III discusses structural, physical, and photophysical properties of the resulting products. Chapter IV summarizes and concludes the effects of the different synthetic routes, the metal, and the ligand on the resulting products with regard to their aforementioned properties.
