Improved Glow For Luminescent Lanthanides

Thiophene-derivatized complexes serve as potential building blocks for optoelectronic thin films
Department: ACS News

Attaching polymerizable thiophene groups to chelating ligands could turn out to be a perfect strategy for developing highly luminescent lanthanide complexes that can be processed into thin films for a variety of optoelectronic applications. Assistant chemistry professor Ana de Bettencourt-Dias of Syracuse University described her group's efforts to design such complexes during a symposium sponsored by the Division of Inorganic Chemistry (INOR) at the American Chemical Society national meeting this week in San . . .
