This report describes new, readily accessible copper(I) complexes that can exhibit unusually long-lived, high quantum yield emissions in fluid solution. The complexes are of the form [Cu(NN)(POP)]+ where NN denotes 1,10-phenanthroline (phen), 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline (dmp) or 2,9-di-n-butyl-1,10-phenanthroline (dbp) and POP denotes(More)
The pseudotetrahedral complexes [Cu(NN)(DPEphos)]BF(4), where DPEphos = bis[2-(diphenylphosphino)phenyl]ether and NN = 1,10-phenanthroline (1), 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline (2), 2,9-di-n-butylphenanthroline (3), or two dimethylcyanamides (4), and NiCl(2)(DPEphos) (5) have been synthesized and structurally characterized by X-ray crystallography and their(More)
Pt(trpy)Cl+, where trpy denotes 2,2':6',2' '-terpyridine, is a versatile binding agent but has a limited photochemistry due to a short excited-state lifetime. However, this work shows that the introduction of aryl substituents at the 4' position of the trpy ligand drastically alters the picture. For the substituents phenyl, p-methoxyphenyl, 1-naphthyl,(More)
