Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, copper, silver, and gold complexes have attracted global attention because of their many functional properties coupled with tunable physical characteristics. Currently, these complexes have industrial, laboratory, and potential applications in a number of high-tech areas such as biomedicine, optical sensing, catalysis, lighting industry, “smart” materials science, etc. On this account, intensive research studies are now in coordination chemistry of coinage metal-based complexes. An especially growing field in chemistry is the directed design and synthesis of new copper, silver, and gold complexes showing promising luminescent and catalytic properties as well as biological activity. Such compounds are crucially important as a platform for the development of luminescent materials, pharmaceutics, selective sensors with enhanced sensitivity, as well as new-generation “smart” materials.

This Topic covers the most recent advances in the synthesis and investigation of copper, silver, and gold complexes exhibiting promising optical and biomedical properties.
