Abstract [en]

Several new bis-phosphine platinum(II) complexes with 2,5-diaryl-substituted oxazole-containing alkyne ligands have been synthesized and optically characterized in solution. Measurements of nonlinear absorption showed strong attenuation of laser light at 532 and 600 nm. The light absorption of the Pt complexes was shifted from the near-UV region for the ground state to the red region for the excited triplet state, and was associated with large extinction coefficients. The optical limiting effect can be explained by triplet-triplet excited state absorption in conjunction with fast excited singlet to-triplet intersystem crossing and slow triplet to-ground-state decay, in comparison with the pulse length of the laser. DFT calculations show good predictability of the S-0-S-1 and S-0-T-1 energy gaps and offer insight into the interaction strength between Pt and the alkyne ligands. The use of this type of ligand, with weak absorption for the Pt(II) complexes in the visual wavelength range as a key feature, enables the possibility to further improve these molecular systems for nonlinear absorption applications.
