Platinum Pincer Complexes: In Pursuit of Switchable Materials

  • Mathew Bryant

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisPhD


The research presented within this thesis is concerned with the design, synthesis, characterisation, and analysis of a series of new compounds of platinum (II), with aims to produce compounds possessing switchable optical properties, and with potential applications as "smart-materials" for use as highly selective sensors.
