Photo-Functional Metal-Organic Complexes
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.
