This thesis covers the following research areas: solvent-mediated, solvent-free synthesis and characterization of copper(I)halides complexes and coordination polymers with various of cyanopyridine ligands, analyzing the photophysical properties, focusing mainly on the luminescence of the copper(I)halides complexes and coordination compounds. It also investigates the impact of structural factors and various synthetic conditions on photophysical properties. This thesis consists of 97 figures, 45 tables, and 125 pages. Eight different compounds have been synthesized in two different synthetic routes; solvent- mediated and solventless with various molar ratio. The characterization of all compounds was done by using elemental analysis, X-ray crystallography, melting point, thermogravimetric analysis, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), electronic absorption spectroscopy, and photoluminescence spectroscopy. The analysis for these data will be discussed in this thesis in addition to the potential application of similar compounds in the field of industry.
