The Design and Synthesis of Versatile Molecular Building Blocks: Working Towards the Controlled Self-Assembly of Novel Functional Materials
Keywords:Magnetism, Molecule-based materials, Octacyanometalates, Supramolecular chemistry, Tetrathiafulvalene, Tris-oxalato complexes
AbstractOur research goals are focused on the preparation of novel molecule-based materials that possess specifically designed properties in solution or in the solid state e.g. self-assembly, magnetism, conductivity and spin crossover phenomena. Most of our systems incorporate paramagnetic transition metal ions and the search for new molecule-based magnetic materials is a prominent theme. Specific areas of research include the preparation and study of oxalate based 2D and 3D magnets, probing the versatility of octacyanometalate building blocks as precursors for new molecular magnets, and the preparation of new tetrathiafulvalene (TIF) derivatives for applications in molecular and supramolecular chemistry.
