A novel and efficient strategy for the synthesis of luminescent polymers bearing metallophilic interactions with unprecedented charge sequences has been designed. For this end suitable basic gold units such as [AuR2]-, bearing perhalophenyl derivatives, and dinuclear acid silver terpyridine species, [Ag2(terpy)2](CF3SO3)2, have been chosen. Their combination originates the polymeric derivatives [{AuR2}2Ag2(terpy)2]n (R = C6F5, C6Cl2F3) or [{Au(C6Cl5)2}Ag(terpy)]n. The change of the perhalophenyl group in the gold complex modulates the strength in the metallophilic contacts and, consequently, the polymer arrays and luminescent properties. The X-ray diffraction studies of these derivatives revealed that there are polymers with unusual + + - - + + - - charge sequences for the R = C6F5 and C6Cl2F3 species, whereas the more classical + - + - disposition was found for the bulkiest C6Cl5 derivative. Their luminescent properties also vary depending on the formation of these polymer arrays, and time-dependent density functional theory calculations were performed to determine the origin of the luminescence. © 2017 American Chemical Society.
