Poster Title

Fullerene Research: Spectroscopic Study of Charge Transfer in Fullerene-Transition Metal and Molecular Wire Supramolecular Organometallic Systems

Institution

Northern Kentucky University

Abstract

Our research group is interested in designing novel supramolecular systems that exhibit photoinduced charge transfer excited states. These systems fall into two categories: 1) those that unite fullerene and transition metal subunits and 2) those that create extended organic structures that enrobe a transition metal center and allow for their polymerization in to linear “molecular wires”. This poster presents recent spectroscopic measurements on several subunits of interest to both of these categories, as well as some initial polymeric results. Presented measurements include absorption, emission (steady-state and time-resolved), and transient absorption measurements at various temperatures. Results will be presented, along with an interpretation of the picture they paint for these supramolecular complexes.
