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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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)
