Controlling structure from the bottom-up: structural and optical properties of layer-by-layer assembled palladium coordination-based multilayers.

Layer-by-layer assembly of two palladium coordination-based multilayers on silicon and glass substrates is presented. The new assemblies consist of rigid-rod chromophores connected by terminal pyridine moieties to palladium centers. Both colloidal palladium and PdCl2(PhCN)2 were used in order to determine the effect of the metal complex precursor on… CONTINUE READING
