Title

Importance of alkyl chain-length on the self-assembly of new Ni(qdt)(2) complexes and charge transport properties

Language

English

Abstract

A series of ionic complexes composed with ([Ni(qdt)2] 2-) and alkyl substituted asymmetric viologen derivatives (AV +) as cations have been synthesized and characterized. A slight change in the length of the alkyl chain of AV+ alters the cation-anion packing and leads to different charge transport properties of these complexes. Here, we establish a structure-property relationship of Ni(qdt) 2 complexes by structurally modifying the cations. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2013.
