Research

The synthesis and fundamental understanding of metal-organic solution-processable electroluminescent (nano)materials and hybrid (organic/inorganic) photosensitizing nanoparticles constitute the core of our research activities. Besides the knowledge in synthetic chemistry and molecular photophysics, a rational basis for the design of cheap triplet emitters for printable electroluminescent devices is pursued. Moreover, the construction of light harvesting units, advanced phototherapeutic and imaging agents is envisaged. Three classes of photoactive entities are developed, and their features tailored by controlling aggregation processes at molecular level:

  1. Efficient triplet emitters as solution-processable metal-organic phosphors for electroluminescent devices able to electronically couple with metallic electrodes and to emit as monomers or aggregated nanostructures. Cheap heavy metal complexes are also actively explored.
  2. Hybrid (organic/inorganic) nanoparticles as light harvesting units, photosensitizers and platforms for targeted phototherapeutic agents.
  3. Light-driven molecular agents able to perturb or to destroy subcellular targets with spatiotemporal resolution and luminescence-based traceability. They can also constitute luminescent labels and targeted energy donors for fluorescence polarization anisotropy (FPA) measurements, fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) and Förster resonant energy transfer (FRET) analysis.
