Gunnlaugsson group research was reported as one of the top ten most accessed articles for Dalton Transactions during the months Oct – Dec 2013.
Joe Byrne’s article reported the coordination chemistry and supramolecular soft matter properties of the BTP motif being explored extensively in the group. In collaboration with researchers in TCD and UCD (Prof. Martin Albrecht) the coordination chemistry, crystallography, electron microscopy and electrochemistry of BTP complexes and BTP-gels were reported.
The article is available from the Royal Society of Chemistry:
Synthesis, structural, photophysical and electrochemical studies of various d-metal complexes of btp [2,6-bis(1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)pyridine] ligands that give rise to the formation of metallo-supramolecular gels
