Nanometric Assembly of Functional Terpyridyl Complexes on Transparent and Conductive Oxide Substrates: Structure, Properties, and Applications

Nanometric Assembly of Functional Terpyridyl Complexes on Transparent and Conductive Oxide Substrates: Structure, Properties, and Applications
Michael Zharnikov, Vikram Singh, Prakash Chandra Mondal
Over the last few decades, molecular assemblies on solid substrates have become increasingly popular, challenging the traditional systems and materials in terms of better control over molecular structure and function at the nanoscale. A variety of such assemblies with high complexity and adjustable properties was generated on the basis of organic, inorganic, organometallic, polymeric, and biomolecular building blocks. Particular versatile elements in this context are terpyridyls due to their wide design flexibility, ease of functionalization, and ability to coordinate to a broad variety of transition-metal ions without forming diastereoisomers, which facilitates tuning of their optical and electronic properties. Specifically, metal–terpyridyl complexes are worthy building blocks for generating optoelectronically active assemblies on technologically relevant transparent and conductive oxide substrates.
