Dicarbenes as bridges in mixed-metal systems
The study of heterobimetallic complexes (having two different metal atoms) involves combining the unique properties of each metal, which can give rise to interesting contrasts in reactivity compared to either metal alone. With two different metals incorporated into one complex, a more diverse...
Research was undertaken into the organic semiconductors tris(8- hydroxyquinoline)aluminum (Alq3) as well as bis(8-hydroxyquinoline)zinc (Znq2) to the effect of improving achievable morphological control using an inexpensive evaporation based solution synthesis method. By varying experimental...
Reactivity and hemilability of ortho-phosphinoaniline complexes of rhodium and ruthenium
Molecular transition metal catalysts offer unique potential for the production of fine chemicals. Chemical processes carried out in the presence of well defined molecular catalysts often only require mild, easily accessible conditions, fewer sacrificial reagents, and can selectively produce a...
Synthesis and Characterization of Functional Iron and Germanium Nanomaterials
Germanium nanomaterials have many potential applications based on their size-tunable optical and electronic properties, for example in photodetectors, photovoltaics and non-volatile memory. In this work, the synthesis of Ge nanoparticles by two different methods based on tailorability through the...
The work presented herein is focused on the synthesis and characterization of inorganic materials for potential use in electronic and photovoltaic applications. Platinum containing complexes of the form LxPt(SC4H2Br)2 (x = 1, L = dppe, dppp; x = 2, L = PBu3, PAr3), were synthesized using...
