The heteropolynuclear complex [Tl{Au(C6Cl5) 2}]n reacts with sterically demanding diamines as tetramethylenediamine (TMDA), 2,2'-(ethylenedioxy)bis(ethylamine) (NOON), or triethylenetetramine (trien) in 1:1 molar ratio in tetrahydrofuran (THF), leading to products of stoichiometry [Tl{Au(C6Cl5) 2}(L)]n (L=TMDA (1), NOON (2),or trien (3)) or [Tl 2{Au(C6Cl5)2}2(L)] n (L=trien (4)) when the solvent used is toluene. Addition of acetylacetone to the diamine complexes in 1:1 molar ratio generates [Tl{Au-(C6Cl5)2}{O=C(CH3)CHC(CH 3)NH(CH2)4NH2}]n (5) and in 1:2 molar ratio [Tl{Au(C6Cl5)2}(L x)]n (Lx = {OdC(CH3)CHC(CH 3)NHCH2CH2}2 (6), {O=C(CH 3)CHC(CH3)NHCH2CH2OCH 2}2 (7)). When the molar ratio is 1:2, with the exception of 3, all these complexes display luminescence in the solid state at room temperature and at 77 K. The origin of the luminescence could be assigned to a delocalizated exciton along the heterometallic chain formed by Au · · · Tl interactions. In addition, a red shift is observed when the temperature decreases, which is attributed to the shortening of the Au-Tl distance at lower temperatures. The emissive properties of solutions of 5-7 and [Tl{Au(C6Cl5)2}]n in THF were studied after adding increasing amounts of different metal ions (Zn 2+, Cd2+, Hg2+, Pb2+, Cu 2+, Al3+, Ni2+, Ag+, Mn 2+, Bi3+) and anions (F-, Cl-, Br-, I-, H2PO4 -, ClO 4 -, Bz-, Ac-, HSO4 -, NO3 -). Interestingly, an enhancement of the fluorescence emission intensity was observed for the complexes considered only upon addition of Br-, Cl-, and Ac-. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
