Final Report Summary - LUMINESCENT M-CYCLES (Diethynylmetallacyclopentadienes - Investigations of a new class of luminescent organometallics)

The objectives of the project “Luminescent M-Cycles” were to synthesise and investigate the photophysical properties of a new class of luminescent materials, 2,5-bis(p-Rarylethynyl) metallacyclopentadienes. The influence of different substituents and donor ligands and the incorporation of heavier metal atoms, such as Ir, which was expected to increase the intersystem-crossing rates and thus the efficiency of phosphorescence, was explored. Detailed photophysical studies and theoretical methods were used to obtain a better understanding of the novel photophysical properties of our compounds.
