      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Pyrene-containing cycloplatinated complexes have been synthesized, the pyrene moiety directly cyclometallated or linked to a ppy ligand through a C–C or C≡C bond. Deep-red/near-IR pyrene-localized 3IL (supported by DFT calculations) phosphorescence beyond 600 nm was observed, overcoming the previous limitation of direct cyclometallation for the phosphorescence of pyrene.

      José L. García Álvarez, Maria E. Amato, Giuseppe M. Lombardo, Gabino A. Carriedo and Francesco Punzo

      Article first published online: 4 AUG 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000586

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The interactions in molecules of I and II, investigated in the solid state, solution and the gas phase, are driven by the preferential supramolecular interactions of a biphenoxy system on one molecule with the chiral pocket formed between the biphenoxy and binaphthoxy rings on an adjacent molecule. Thus, these intermolecular interactions may be regarded as self-organization by chiral recognition.
