Molecular Switches and Stimuli-Responsive Coordination Polymers

  Molecular switches are molecular or supramolecular architectures capable of undergoing reversible structural reorganizations in response to external stimuli that can be for example of electrical, optical or chemical inputs. These compounds can be utilized as active components in solution or upon immobilization in the solid state to produce smart materials, electronic devices or for therapeutic applications.



Observing and understanding the events surrounding the absoption of a photon by a molecule is at the core of our research. Coordination photochemistry is our main tool to develop new luminescent complexes for various applications ranging from photocatalysis to LED displays...
