Spotlight Collection: Aggregation Induced Luminescence of Metal Complexes

We are delighted to announce our new spotlight collection on aggregation induced luminescence of metal complexes. Spotlight Collections are ongoing themed collections highlighting the best past and present work in Dalton Transactions.

Metal complexes have been known as luminescent materials for decades and still represent an extremely attractive class of materials due to their peculiar structure-related properties. As a consequence, they have found applications as responsive supramolecular motifs, sensors and photocatalysts. In the last 10 years, the emerging field of Aggregation-Induced Emission (AIE) demonstrated how a vast variety of compounds are able to switch from negligible emissive compounds in solutions to intensely luminescent materials upon aggregation.

This Spotlight Collection is focused on recent advances of AIE-active metal complexes published in Dalton Transactions, displaying the synthetic strategies for the preparation of new coordination motifs, their photophysical properties and their use as tuneable emissive materials in sensing-oriented and opto-electronic applications, aiming to define useful design principles for future improvements.

This collection is guest edited by Dalton Transactions Associate Editor Professor Paola Ceroni (University of Bologna, Italy), Dr Andrea Fermi (University of Bologna, Italy) and Professor Inamur R. Laskar (Birla Institute of Technology and Science Pilani, India).

Spotlight Collection: Photoinduced Redox Chemistry

We are delighted to announce our new spotlight collection on Photoinduced redox chemistry. Spotlight Collections are ongoing themed collections highlighting the best past and present work in Dalton Transactions.

This collection demonstrates the incredible breadth of ground-breaking research being undertaken in the area of photoinduced redox chemistry all over the world.

Many classes of inorganic complexes and materials can participate in photoinduced redox chemistry, in which absorption of a photon generates an excited state that then undergoes an electron-transfer event with a redox partner. Many classes of inorganic compounds spanning a large portion of the periodic table, including transition metal and f-element coordination compounds, organometallic complexes, MOFs, nanomaterials, and extended inorganic solids, can undergo photoinduced redox chemistry. Fundamental studies of the thermodynamics and kinetics of these excited-state redox processes remain important, as they continue to reveal key insights into how ligand design, electron configuration, molecular structure, crystal structure, environment and composition affect the excited-state redox chemistry of these many categories of inorganic compounds. Moreover, photoinduced charge transport processes involving inorganic compounds are important elementary steps in several applications, including but not limited to solar fuels, organic photoredox catalysis, dye-sensitized solar cells, and photodynamic therapy.

This Spotlight Collection covers various aspects of photoinduced redox chemistry in inorganic compounds including excited-state redox processes involving new inorganic materials, the development of novel systems for studying and optimizing these processes, and studies using known compounds for applications related to photoinduced charge transport, highlighting the important roles that existing inorganic compounds can play in these areas. This collection will showcase the combined roles that synthetic and physical inorganic chemistry, including time-resolved spectroscopy and computational studies, play in driving fundamental and applied research in this continually evolving field of research.

This collection is guest edited by Dalton Transactions Advisory Board member Prof. Thomas Teets (University of Houston), Prof. Dr. Katja Heinze (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz) and Prof. Paul Elliott (University of Huddersfield).

Spotlight Collection: Metallocycles and Metallocages

We are delighted to announce our new spotlight collection on Metallocycles and Metallocages. Spotlight Collections are ongoing themed collections highlighting the best past and present work in Dalton Transactions.

This collection demonstrates the amazing breadth of ground-breaking research being undertaken in the area of metallocycles and metallocages all over the world.

Metallocycles and metallocages are discrete, 2D and 3D metal-organic architectures. These beautiful and often complex structures can be formed from relatively simple building blocks through self-assembly processes centred around transition metal and lanthanide coordination chemistry. The diversity of accessible topologies and sizes, combined with their well-defined cavities, make them fascinating synthetic targets and attractive hosts in supramolecular chemistry. This Spotlight Collection aims to celebrate recent developments in the field, highlighting both fundamental and applied research.

Fundamental research into the construction and structural interconversion of new cages and metallocycles remains a valuable and popular research topic, while new and varied applications of these structures continue to develop and expand. Examples found within this collection include studies of spin and magnetism, hierarchical self-assembly into gels and applications in catalysis, separations, cancer therapeutics and optical detection.

This collection is guest edited by Dalton Transactions Advisory Board member Professor Lin Xu (East China Normal University), alongside Dr Cally Haynes (University College London) and Dr James Lewis (Imperial College London).

Dalton Trans., 2022, 51, 6212-6219

In this outstanding article, the authors explored the interplay between molecular and electronic structure for a series of Cu(I) and Cu(II) complexes with dpaR ligands through various spectroscopic and physical techniques.

 

Meet the authors of this outstanding paper

Lisa Olshansky

Lisa Olshansky is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at UIUC. She received her PhD from MIT in 2015. Her current research focuses on mimicking the ways that biological systems efficiently interconvert different forms of energy. Specifically, she hypothesizes that there is a critical interplay between macroscopic changes in molecular structure and subatomic changes in electronic structure that can be leveraged for diverse applications ranging from solar energy conversion to biomedical research. Olshansky has been named a Searle, Vallee, and Cottrell Scholar, a Kavli fellow (2022), and has received early career research awards from the NIH and DOE.

 
Bronte Charette

Bronte obtained her B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Winnipeg where she began her research career in synthetic inorganic chemistry which she continued during her M.Sc. studies under the supervision of Prof. Jamie Ritch at the University of Manitoba. In 2021, Bronte received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Irvine as a Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Postgraduate Doctoral Fellow with Prof. Alan Heyduk. Her postdoctoral work with Prof. Lisa Olshansky focused on synthesizing switchable transition metal complexes for renewable energy conversion strategies. Bronte is excited to start her independent career as an assistant professor at UC Davis this summer.

Paul Griffin

Paul Griffin received his bachelor’s in chemistry and philosophy (2016) and his Master’s in chemistry (2018) from the University of Scranton. His master’s research was conducted under Dr Art Catino in which he developed a general approach to synthesize substituted tetraarylmethanes. Paul recently obtained his PhD in inorganic chemistry at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (2023), where he works with Lisa Olshansky to study the relationship between conformational dynamics, photochemistry, and electron transfer in copper coordination complexes. Paul is passionate about mentoring the next generation of scientists and explores his philosophy interests by having riveting discussions with his cat, Mookie.

Claire Zimmerman

Claire completed her B.S. at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under Dr Lisa Olshansky. She is currently in her first year of graduate studies at the University of California Irvine with Dr Jenny Yang.

Spotlight Collection: Fluorinated ligands

We are delighted to announce our new spotlight collection on Fluorinated ligands. Spotlight Collections are ongoing themed collections highlighting the best past and present work in Dalton Transactions.

This collection focuses on fluorinated ligands and their effects on physical properties and chemical reactivity.

Fluorine embodies reactivity and inertness, both of which are exploited by inorganic chemists. It is the most electronegative element in the periodic table (3.98 on the Pauling scale) and has a remarkably high reduction potential (2.87 V).  The van der Waals and covalent radii of fluorine are quite short (ranked third, only after the first-row elements hydrogen and helium), making it unusually small for its atomic number. The homonuclear bond in F2 is particularly reactive while some heteronuclear bonds involving fluorine are remarkably stable. The combined effects of these features on fluorine-containing molecules are often unmatched by any other element, for example with carbon, where it forms very robust, chemically inert single bonds; the BDE of C-F compared to C-H bonds in CF4 and CH4 are 546.8 and 439.3 kJ/mol, respectively.

Metal complexes of fluorinated ligands in comparison to their non-fluorinated, hydrocarbon counterparts, usually display different properties such as relatively high thermal and oxidative stability, volatility, diminished vibrational modes and shifted spectroscopic features (absorption and emission), as well as unique reactivity profiles. They are also ideal for applications in fluorous-biphase media and supercritical CO2. Additionally, fluorine containing anions such as [BF4], [SbF6], [B(C6F5)4], and [B{3,5-(CF3)2C6H3}4]− are among the weakest donors known. This Spotlight collection brings together contributions by leading researchers on this topic to highlight some of the fascinating developments in fluorinated supporting ligands, C-F inertness, electron-withdrawing effects of fluoro-substituents, the weakly-coordinating nature of fluorinated anions, efforts to functionalize C-F bonds, and species that selectively deliver F, F· and F.

This collection is guest edited by Dalton Transactions Advisory Board member Professor Rasika Dias, The University of Texas at Arlington, USA, and Professor Linda Doerrer, Boston University, USA.
