Photo-Functional Metal-Organic Complexes

RESEARCH

We are interested in studying functional phosphorescent metal-organic complexes.

  • Projects are focused on the novel ligands (e.g. allenylidene) and noble or non-noble metal ions, aimed for functional soft materials, optical devices (OLED), liquid crystals, semiconductors and so on. Their photo-physical and -chemical properties, and self-assembly processes are also investigated.

  • Photo-activated phosphorescence triplet state and the identification of the mechanisms lead to the simple way for preserving the triplet state in aerated solutions and/or gels, and the applications such as triplet–triplet annihilation photon upconversion (TTA-UC) in the air.

You can read on to find out more about these projects below. 

 

SELF-ASSEMBLY OF THE AMPHIPHILIC PHOSPHORESCENT METAL-ORGANIC MOLECULES

Synthesize phosphorescent metal-organic complexes, investigate their photo-physical and -chemical properties, and study their self-assembly processes via supramolecular interactions such as metal-metal (Pd(II)-Pd(II), Pt(II)-Pt(II) and Au(I)-Au(I) etc.) and/or π-π interactions, in hydrophilic or hydrophobic solutions.
