Chiral metal-dithiolene complexes

Chiral metal-dithiolene complexes
Metal dithiolene complexes have increasingly developed over the last fifteen years due to their peculiar electronic structures that makes them very important units for magnetic, conducting and optical molecular materials. This review deals with the different families of chiral metal dithiolenes reported to date in the literature, with the objective of underlining the role of chirality on the resulting materials, in order to disclose possible directions for future developments. Chirality in such materials has been introduced through two strategies, via chiral cations in combination with anionic complexes or using pre-synthesized chiral dithiolene ligands. The corresponding materials resulting from both strategies are thoroughly discussed, with a special focus on the solid state architectures largely influenced by the chiral information. Chiral dithiolene ligands have generally provided homoleptic Ni(II) and Au(III) anionic and neutral bis(dithiolene) complexes, while heteroleptic complex have been described with Ni(II) and Mo(II). The neutral Au(III) complexes are especially interesting in the context of chiral single component conductors.
