Metal-based molecular switches generated from dithienyl ethene (DTE)

This report reviews the current literature on metal complexes whose active component is a dithienylethene (DTE)-derived molecular switch. It is a comprehensive account of the rationale for and the variations in the ligand design. In detailing and tabulating the consequent photophysical properties of the complexes and materials produced, it provides an overview of the advances made and directions undertaken in this burgeoning research field.
