Photofunctional Chemistry Based on Metal Complexes and/or Supramolecules (#239)

Recently, various photofunctions, such as organic electroluminescence devices, luminescence probes for bioimaging, organic solar cells, or photocontrollable magnets, have been developed using metal complexes or supramolecules, and have attracted considerable attentions. For example, phosphorescent iridium complexes were shown to be useful not only for organic electroluminescence devices but also as phosphorescence probes for bioimaging, while metal ferrocyanides are effective in terms of photocontrollable magnets. The purpose of this symposium is to focus on advanced photofunctional materials and discuss about future of photofunctional chemistry by scientists in this field. The targeted systems are metal complexes and/or supramolecules, which are promising molecules because of their complex photofunctions based on their flexible combinations. This symposium will cover not only basic photochemical studies such as synthesis or analyses but also photofunctional materials related to devices or biological applications in order to look over hot topics of functional chemistry and give opportunities to harmonize between topics.
