Abstract

original image

Rausziehen, rausziehen! Amphiphile Tetrakis(2,6-xylylisocyanid)rhodium(I)-Komplexe organisieren sich in Wasser über RhI⋅⋅⋅RhI- und hydrophobe Wechselwirkungen unter Bildung sehr langer kristalliner Nanodrähte in hierarchische Mikro- und Makrostrukturen. Die auf diesem Weg aus Lösungen erhaltenen metallorganischen Überstrukturen lumineszieren im Nahinfrarot und sind elektrische Leiter.
