Controlling the growth of low dimensional nanostructures of organometallic complexes with well-defined properties is a significant and ongoing challenge within nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Huibiao Liu, Yuliang Li and co-workers, from the CAS Key Laboratory of Organic Solids in Beijing have made inroads into this challenge by controlling the growth of the nanowire–nanotube junctions of a dichloro-bridged dimeric iridium complex optimising the material for use in LEDs.
