      An NN PtII bis(acetylide) complex containing rhodamine was prepared (Pt–Rho), which shows intense UV/Vis absorption at 556 nm (ϵ = 185800 M–1 cm–1), fluorescence of the ligand, and prolonged triplet excited state lifetime (τT = 83.0 μs, rhodamine-localised 3IL state). Pt–Rho was used as sensitiser for triplet–triplet annihilation upconversion, and an upconversion quantum yield of 11.2 % was observed.

      Version of Record online: 7 SEP 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100536

      The one-pot synthesis of a range of silver-gold core-shell colloids is presented. These core-shell particles were characterised by several methods and shown to consist primarily of silver cores and gold exteriors that were slightly oxidised at the surface by the surfactant. The effect of methylene blue dye absorption onto these colloids was monitored. An increase in the extinction coefficient of the dye was observed. The different levels of increase in the extinction coefficient for the silver-gold colloids versus the pure metal colloids were explained.

      [(tmeda)Li{Ph2PCH2S(NSiMe3)2}] contains a N-chelated lithium cation that is easy to replace with other s-block metals. The phosphanyl side arm of the ligand provides a coordination site that is softer than the N atoms and allows for the synthesis of heterobimetallic complexes; while the P atom contributes to the tripodal facial coordination with Ca (1) and Sr (2) and binds with the secondary metals Rb (3) and K (4). In complexes 3 and 4 lithium is the structural anchor.
