1,10-phenanthrolines: versatile building blocks for luminescent molecules, materials and metal complexes.


1,10-phenanthroline entails several appealing structural and chemical properties: rigidity, planarity, aromaticity, basicity, chelating capability. This makes it a versatile starting material for synthetic organic, inorganic and supramolecular chemistry. In this tutorial review we examine how the chemical versatility of pristine 1,10-phenanthroline, a… (More)
