Syntheses, crystal structures and photophysical properties of d10 transition-metal (Ag+, Cu+, Cd2+ and Zn2+) coordination complexes based on a thiophene-containing heterocyclic thioamide
Four d10 transition-metal coordination complexes 1–4 (1: [Ag2(TPT)2(TPTH)2]; 2: [Cu6(TPT)6]·2DMF; 3: [Cd(TPT)2(TPTH)]·CH3CH2OH, 4: [Zn(TPT)2]n) have been constructed from a newly designed heterocyclic thioamide ligand, TPTH (TPTH = 4-(thiophen-2-yl)-pyrimidine-2-thiol). All complexes have been structurally elucidated by single crystal X-ray diffraction analyses. Except for 4, which shows a one-dimensional (1-D) chain structure, 1–3 are all discrete coordination complexes featuring dinuclear, hexanuclear and mononuclear entities, respectively. Their photophysical properties have been evaluated in the solid state at room temperature by UV–vis diffuse reflectance and luminescence spectra. Among them, 2 exhibits a strong red luminescence (λem = 699 nm) with a remarkable red-shift of the maximum emission compared to that of the TPTH ligand (λem = 536 nm). The red emission observed with 2 is ascribed to a LMCT (ligand-to-metal charge transfer) transition which agrees with the DFT calculations.
Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform.
