A New Lamellar Gold Thiolate Coordination Polymer, [Au(m-SPhCO2H)]n, for the Formation of Luminescent Polymer Composites

Abstract : The photoluminescence of gold thiolate clusters brings about many potential applications, but its origin is still elusive because of its complexity. A strategy in understanding the structure-properties relationship is to study closely related neutral gold thiolate coordination polymers (CPs). Here, a new CP is reported, [Au(m-SPhCO 2 H)] n. Its structure is lamellar with an inorganic layer made of Au-S-Au-S helical chains, similar to the [Au(p-SPhCO 2 H)] n analog. An in-depth study of its photophysical properties revealed that it is a bright yellow phosphorescent emitter with a band centered at 615 nm and a quantum yield (QY) of 19% at room temperature and in a solid state. More importantly, a comparison to the para-analog, which has a weak emission, displayed a strong effect of the position of the electron withdrawing group (EWG) on the luminescent properties. In addition, [Au(m-SPhCO 2 H)] n CPs were mixed with organic polymers to generate transparent and flexible luminescent thin films. The ability to tune the emission position with the appropriate contents makes these nontoxic polymer composites promising materials for lighting devices.
