Hot Article: Functional metallopolyelectrolyte films

Fabrication of metal-ion containing layer-by-layer (LBL) assemblies has been simplified in a recently published procedure. Metallopolyelectrolytes were used to synthesise the LBL films, without the need for strict control of metal to ligand ratio, or preparation of coordination polymers. Through this synthesis fluorescent supermolecular thin films with desired colours were also fabricated.
