Abstract

original image

Heterometallic clusters with strong luminescence have been synthesized (see picture: Au(C[TRIPLE BOND]CPh)2 yellow-red, Ag2 blue, O red) from the metalloligand unit [Au(C[TRIPLE BOND]CPh)PPh3] (yellow/red bars) by using both standard solvent-based and solvent-free reactions. The aggregates are stabilized only by acetylide–metal or metal–metal interactions, and their nuclearity is controlled through the addition of different donor ligands.
