1st Edition

Multimetallic and Macromolecular Inorganic Photochemistry

Edited By V. Ramamurthy, Kirk S. Schanze Copyright 1999

    A description of applications to electrical conductors, nonlinear optical devices, polymer light-omitting diodes (LEDs), electronic devices, batteries, antistatic coatings, and transistors. It reviews cases of metal-organic polymers incorporated with traditional organic polymers; assesses key properties of conjugated polymers; discusses features of d10 complexes and their interactions with DNA; and more.

    Metal-organic conducting polymers - photoactive switching in molecular wires; luminescence behaviour of polynuclear metals complexes of copper (I), silver (I), and gold (I); electron transfer within synthetic polypeptides and de novo designed proteins; tridentate bridging ligands in the construction of stereochemically defined supramolecular complexes; the photophysical and photochemical properties of metallo-1,2-enedithiolates; molecular and supramolecular photochemistry of porphyrins and metalloporphyrins.
