Chutes and … Ladders in coordination networks represent a boundary between 1D and 2D systems. Halogen-bridged PtII/PtIV mixed-valence ladder compounds have been synthesized for the first time. In these compounds, the band gap is controlled by changing the bridging halide ions. Moreover, by changing counteranions, the charge arrangements of the ladder compounds can be controlled.
