The potential of the F127-water soft system towards selective solubilisation of iridium(III) octahedral complexes.

Abstract

In order to obtain new functional soft systems for use as templating agents for the construction of functional mesostructured materials, the dynamic ordered soft systems formed by a hydrophilic ionic iridium(III) complex (IrPa) embedded into two different concentration F127-water mixtures have been investigated. To this aim, combined spectral and time-resolved photophysical techniques and rheological methods have been employed. The position of the chromophore inside the micellar, cubic and hexagonal phases of the F127 polymeric neutral surfactant in water was effectively determined. The hydrophilic character of the iridium(III) complex chosen allowed preferential functionalization of the F127 corona in the micellar and cubic phases.
