Abstract

original image

Au⋅⋅⋅Au-Wechselwirkungen zwischen den rhombenartig angeordneten Gold(I)-Zentren in einer neuartigen Klasse lumineszierender vierkerniger Gold(I)-alkinylcalix[4]krone-6-Komplexe (siehe Bild) bewirken ein reiches Lumineszenzverhalten mit langlebigen angeregten Zuständen und relativ hohen Lumineszenzquantenausbeuten.
