New Multichromophoric Ligand for Light Harvesting

New Multichromophoric Ligand for Light Harvesting

Light-harvesting antennae are of great importance for the development of efficient solar cells. Multichromophoric systems capable of harvesting light are of interest as they can be used in multicomponent systems in which the different chromophores are in close contact to favor energy and/or electron transfer, so that the excitation energy can be funneled to a specific acceptor. If one of these chromophores is also a good ligand for metal ions, new interesting properties can arise in a supramolecular system, such as control of the energy/electron transfer processes by changing the metal ion or the ability to generate supramolecular architectures and coordination polymers. To find out more about this subject read the paper by Marc Gingras, Aix-Marseille Université, France, Giacomo Bergamini, University of Bologna, Italy, and co-workers

  1. Solution-Processible Brilliantly Luminescent EuIII Complexes with Host-Featured Phosphine Oxide Ligands for Monochromic Red-Light-Emitting Diodes

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201403244

    Shining bright: A series of solution-processible electroluminescent (EL) Eu3+ complexes were constructed with a self-host strategy, in which neutral ligands were employed as functionalized bidentate phosphine oxide ligands with strong host characteristics (see figure). As a result, the corresponding spin-coated devices achieved low driving voltages, such as onset voltages of 6 V and a maximum luminance up to 90 cd m−2. This work verifies the potential of small molecular EL Eu3+ complexes for solution-processed diodes through rational function integrations.

    AMPing out: The function and structural changes of an AMP molecular aptamer beacon and its molecular recognition capacity for its target, adenosine monophosphate (AMP), was systematically explored in solution with a protic ionic liquid, ethylammonium nitrate (EAN; see figure).

  3. One-Pot Self-Templating Synthesis of Pt Hollow Nanostructures and Their Catalytic Properties for CO Oxidation

    Bu-Seo Choi, Sun Mi Kim, Jintaek Gong, Young Wook Lee, Shin Wook Kang, Prof.Dr. Hee-Seung Lee, Prof.Dr. Jeong Young Park and Prof.Dr. Sang Woo Han

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201403992

    Self-service: Nanoporous Pt hollow nanostructures with octahedral and hexagonal frame-like morphologies are prepared by a facile one-pot self-templating route with no assistance from a preformed template or shape-directing agent. The hexagonal frame-like Pt hollow structures exhibit significantly enhanced catalytic activity toward CO oxidation reaction compared to the octahedral Pt hollow nanostructures due to the higher oxidation state of Pt (see figure).

  4. Liquid-Phase Enantioselective Chromatographic Resolution Using Interpenetrated, Homochiral Framework Materials

    Stephanie A. Boer, Yada Nolvachai, Chadin Kulsing, Dr. Laura J. McCormick, Dr. Chris S. Hawes, Prof. Philip J. Marriott and Dr. David R. Turner

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404047

    Anaylyte-sensitive MOFs: Two new enantiopure 2D[RIGHTWARDS ARROW]3D interpenetrated materials used as stationary liquid chromatographic phases are shown to resolve selected racemic mixtures with enantiomeric and chemical selectivity. Enantioselectivity is enhanced for the metal–organic material in comparison to the control experiment when only the pure chiral ligand was employed.

  5. Structurally Tunable 3-Cyanoformazanate Boron Difluoride Dyes

    Stephanie M. Barbon, Pauline A. Reinkeluers, Dr. Jacquelyn T. Price, Prof. Dr. Viktor N. Staroverov and Prof. Dr. Joe B. Gilroy

    Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/chem.201404297

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Simple but bright: A novel class of boron difluoride dyes based on 3-cyanoformazanate ligands is reported. The dyes were synthesized by straightforward synthetic methods and shown to possess readily tunable and substituent-dependent absorption, emission, and electrochemical properties. The trends in experimental results observed were confirmed and rationalized by using electronic structure calculations.
