Abstract

A new series of organometallic/inorganic hybrid Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films containing an organometallic gold(i) aryleneethynylene metal complex (OMA) as the π-conjugated organometallic molecule and a polyoxometalate (POM, POM = H3BW12O40, H6As2W 18O62, or H6P2Mo18O 62) of the Keggin and Dawson structure as the inorganic composite, were prepared and characterized by A isotherms, UV-vis absorption spectra, photoluminescence spectra, atomic force microscopy imaging, scanning tunnelling microscopy, and surface photovoltage spectroscopy. Our experimental results indicate that stable, well defined and well organized Langmuir and LB films are formed in pure water and polyoxometalate subphases. There is a quenching effect in the luminescence of the gold(i) complex when it is made into the LB films. The OMA/POM hybrid LB films display strong photovoltage effect in the UV-vis region. The photovoltage response of OMA/H6As2W 18O62 can be as high as 3338 μV. OMA/POM monolayer films show good electrical conductivity, and the tunnelling current for a OMA/H3BW12O40 monolayer film amounts to 50 to approximately -100 nA when the voltage is set at ±9 V. © 2010 CSIRO.
