Synthesis and Spectroscopic Properties of Monometallics and Bimetallic Assemblies– Potential Sensors Based on Electrochemically Sensitised Luminescence

posted on 12.03.2020, 01:40 by MAYOORINI MAJURAN
The overarching goal of this project was to develop the first generation of supramolecular assemblies which can be potential sensors based on electrochemically sensitised luminescence. This novel process require donor-acceptor complexes in which energy transfer takes place through electrochemical excitation. The donor-acceptor complexes that were analysed were bimetallic assemblies in which electrochemically responsive transitional metal complexes were chemically coupled to highly luminescent acceptors in the form of lanthanoid complexes. Hence, the project involved in the synthesis and analysis of a library of RuII and IrIII based monometallics and bimetallic assemblies with excellent photophysical and electrochemical properties.
