Two new fluorene derivatized 1,10-phenanthroline ligands and related tris-chelate Ru(II) or Zn(II) coordination complexes have been synthesised. The linear and nonlinear (two-photon induced fluorescence) photophysical measurements have contributed to highlight the possibility to tune the absorption spectral range and excited lifetime, depending on ligand(More)
The emission properties of a series of substituted 1,3-diarylisobenzofurans have been studied. Most compounds exhibit very intense emission in the nanosecond timescale at room temperature as well as at 77 K. The room temperature emission is attributed to the deactivation of a twisted intramolecular charge transfer excited state, based on its energy, shape(More)
We demonstrate herein a newly developed photoelectrochemical immunosensor for the determination of anti-cholera toxin antibody by using a photosensitive biotinylated polypyrrole film. The latter was generated by electro-oxidation of a biotinylated tris(bipyridyl) ruthenium(II) complex bearing pyrrole groups. The photoexcitation of this modified electrode(More)
A number of multinuclear assemblies based on [Ru(bpy)3](2+) photosensitive moieties covalently linked to Fe(II), Co(II) or Zn(II) polypyridyl complexes are investigated regarding their initial and thermally equilibrated excited states. Ground state absorption and vibrational spectroscopic techniques are carried out, along with resonance Raman, transient(More)
We report a very efficient homogeneous system for the visible-light-driven hydrogen production in pure aqueous solution at room temperature. This comprises [Rh(III) (dmbpy)(2)Cl(2)]Cl (1) as catalyst, [Ru(bpy)(3)]Cl(2) (PS1) as photosensitizer, and ascorbate as sacrificial electron donor. Comparative studies in aqueous solutions also performed with other(More)
In order to model the photoinduced electron-transfer reactions from the manganese cluster to the photoactive P680 chlorophylls in photosystem II, three heterohexanuclear complexes, [Mn2III,IVO2[RuII(bpy)2(Ln)]4]11+ [bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine, n = 2 (1a), 4 (1b), 6 (1c)], in which one MnIII,IV(micro-O)2 center is covalently linked to four RuII(bpy)3-like(More)
Three heterotetranuclear complexes, [{Ru(II)(bpy)(2)(L(n))}(3)Mn(II)](8+) (bpy = 2,2'-bipyridine, n = 2, 4, 6), in which a Mn(II)-tris-bipyridine-like centre is covalently linked to three Ru(II)-tris-bipyridine-like moieties using bridging bis-bipyridine L(n) ligands, have been synthesised and characterised. The electrochemical, photophysical and(More)
A [Ru(bpy)3](2+)-like complex (L1) bearing two free terpyridine groups at the 5 and 5' positions of the same bipyridine, linked by the rigid and linear 2,5-dimethyl phenylene bridges has been synthesized to open access to two classes of linear molecular wires with photosensitive properties: a bimetallic coordination polymer and an inorganic triad. In this(More)
This work describes the synthesis and characterization of two new bis-terdentate Ru(II) complexes. Compound 1 is a homoleptic complex containing two CNC N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) based ligands, whereas compound 2 bears one CNC ligand and an ancillary terpyridine ligand. The redox and photophysical properties of both compounds have been investigated and(More)
