Chromophores and materials that exhibit nonlinear absorption over a broad spectrum and with high temporal dynamic range are of interest for application in materials engineering and biology. Recent work by a number of research groups has led to the development of a new family of organometallic chromophores and materials featuring interesting and useful(More)
To explore the photophysics of platinum acetylide chromophores with strong two-photon absorption cross-sections, we have investigated the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of a series of platinum acetylide complexes that feature highly pi-conjugated ligands substituted with pi-donor or -acceptor moieties. The molecules (numbered 1-4) considered(More)
A series of platinum-containing organometallic dimer complexes has been synthesized and the photophysical properties have been investigated under one- and two-photon (2PA) absorption conditions. The complexes have the general structure [DPAF-C[triple bond]C-Pt(PBu(3))(2)-C[triple bond]C-Ar-C[triple bond]C-Pt(PBu(3))(2)-C[triple bond]C-DPAF], where Ar is a(More)
This manuscript reports the synthesis and photophysical investigation of two hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronenes (HBCs) that are functionalized with platinum(II) acetylide units of the type trans-(Ar-CC-)2Pt(PBu3)2. In one complex, the platinum is directly linked to the HBC chromophore by an ethynyl spacer, whereas in the second, the platinum is separated from the(More)
A soluble truxene derivative (TR1) attached with triphenylamine at the peripheral position was designed and synthesized. The structure and purity of TR1 were carefully characterized by 1H NMR, UV/vis and photoluminescent spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, and thermal analyses. It exhibited good solubility in common organic solvents and good film forming(More)
The photophysical properties of the complex (L)Ir(ppy)(2)(+), where ppy = 2-phenylpyridine and L = 4,4'-(2,2'-bipyridine-5,5'-diylbis(ethyne-2,1-diyl))bis(N,N-dihexylaniline), have been investigated under one- and two-photon excitation conditions. In THF solution, the complex exhibits broad ground-state absorption with lambda(max) approximately 500 nm and(More)
