Abstract

One of the most important aims of photochemistry is the design and construction of artificial molecular devices for energy conversion and information processing. Assembling functionally integrated molecular components into an organised supramolecular structure can result in new functions and properties that are not available in each individual molecular component. Here artificial photonic devices are described, based on transition metal complexes, which can be used to study energy-transfer processes and can act as molecular switches.
