Homoleptic gold(I) N-heterocyclic allenylidene complexes: excited-state properties and lyotropic chromonics

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of phosphorescent Au(I) bis(N-heterocyclic allenylidene) complexes, namely [Au([double bond, length as m-dash]C[double bond, length as m-dash]C[double bond, length as m-dash]CR1R2)2]+X, were synthesized and structurally characterized. These organometallic complexes exhibit panchromatic transient absorption upon electronic photo-excitation and can self-organize into lyotropic chromonic mesophases in aqueous solutions.
