We describe how the association between an ytterbium ion and a ruthenium carbon-rich complex enables the first switching of the near-IR Yb(III) luminescence by taking advantage of the redox commutation of the carbon-rich antenna.
Association between cationic and anionic heptamethine dyes led to the formation of a new organic salt (3) displaying exceptional light-harvesting properties in the NIR spectral range and having amphoteric redox character. Preliminary results of molecular bulk heterojunction solar cells based on the title compound 3 and [60]PCBM as the only active layer(More)
With the help of EPR spectroscopy, we show that the diamagnetic [Ru(dppe)2(-C≡C-R)2] system sets up a magnetic coupling between two organic radicals R, i.e., two nitronyl nitroxide or two verdazyl units, which is stronger than that of related platinum organometallic systems. Surprisingly, further oxidation of the ruthenium redox-active metal coupling unit(More)
A new series of ruthenium organometallic carbon-rich complexes, exhibiting fast electron transfer kinetics combined to a low oxidation potential, was synthesized for self-assembled monolayer (SAM) formation on gold surfaces. The molecules consist of highly conjugated ruthenium(II) mono(σ-arylacetylide) or bis(σ-arylacetylide) complexes functionalized with(More)
The concept of cyanine has been successfully extended to an anionic heptamethine dye featuring tricyanofuran (TCF) moieties in terms of structure, reactivity, and photophysical properties. Importantly, absorption and emission are red-shifted compared to its classical cationic analog without any cost in terms of thermal stability. In addition to its(More)
The preparation and properties of novel ruthenium carbon-rich complexes [(Ph-C≡C-)2-nRu(dppe)2(-C≡C-bipyM(hfac)2)n] (n = 1, 2; M = CuII, MnII; bipy = 2,2'-bipyridin-5-yl) characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and designed for molecular magnetism are reported. With the help of EPR spectroscopy, we show that the neutral ruthenium system sets up a(More)
