Moussa, J., Cheminel, T., Freeman, G. R., Chamoreau, L. M., Williams, J. A. G. & Amouri, H. (2014). An unprecedented cyclometallated platinum(II)complex incorporating a phosphinine co-ligand: synthesis and photoluminescence behaviour. Dalton Transactions 43(22): 8162-8165.

Author(s) from Durham


The first luminescent cyclometallated platinum(II) complex bearing phosphinine co-ligands is reported. The long-lived luminescence, which it displays at 77 K, is assigned to a phosphinine-localised triplet excited state on the basis of electrochemical data and TD-DFT calculations
