Objectives
2 To perform spectroscopic, physical and structural characterization of the newly synthesized carbon-based π-conjugated ligands and bridges, donor and acceptor molecules, fullerene acceptors, Si-O precursors, metal complex precursors and metal-ligand chromophoric complexes, dyads, triads, D-B-A systems and Si-O hybrids, 3 To study the electrochemical, electronic absorption, photoluminescence, donor-acceptor charge-transfer and various functional properties of carbon-based π-conjugated ligands and bridges, metal-ligand chromophoric complexes, fullerene derivatives, dyads, triads, D-B-A systems and Si-O hybrids, 4 To explore the supramolecular assembly in different environments and to study the changes in the spectroscopic, electronic absorption, luminescence, donor-acceptor charge transfer and functional properties as well as the morphologies of the hierarchical supramolecular assemblies and nanostructures of the metal-ligand chromophores, fullerene derivatives, dyads, triads, D-B-A systems and Si-O hybrids, and 5 To understand and correlate the spectroscopic, electronic absorption, luminescence, donor-acceptor charge transfer and functional properties as well as the underlying factors that govern the supramolecular assembly and morphologies of the organized structures of these new classes of functionalized carbon- and silicon-containing metal-ligand chromophores, and metal-containing dyads, triads, D-B-A systems and Si-O hybrids.
