Luminescent cyclodextrin-encapsulated transition metal cations

Some of our confining ligands are also ideal for promoting the formation of luminescent copper(I) complexes with unusual coordination geometries, in particular heteroleptic ones. Thanks to their confining character, we expect our cavity-shaped ligands to form copper(I) complexes with enhanced luminescent properties that should be suitable for light emitting applications and photocatalysis.
