Vapochromic and vapoluminescent response of materials based on platinum( ii ) complexes intercalated into layered zirconium phosphate Academic Article uri icon


  • Novel materials based on platinum(ii) complexes incorporated into zirconium phosphate (ZrP) frameworks exhibit rapid and reversible vapochromic/ vapoluminescent response upon exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The pattern response is distinctly different than that of salts of the platinum complexes. These results suggest that the microenvironment of the ZrP can modulate the properties of vapochromic compounds. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
