Control of emission colour with N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands in phosphorescent three-coordinate Cu(i) complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of three phosphorescent mononuclear (NHC)–Cu(I) complexes were prepared and characterized. Photophysical properties were found to be largely controlled by the NHC ligand chromophore. Variation of the NHC ligand leads to emission colour tuning over 200 nm range from blue to red, and emission efficiencies of 0.16–0.80 in the solid state.
