Paper Abstract

The spectroscopic properties of transition metal complexes make them good candidates for optical sensors. We have developed a coordination complex of ruthenium (II) that changes its visible spectra as a function of local environment. The coordinating ligands to the ruthenium (II) center are cyanide and dipyridophenazine; the cyanides impart solvatochromic behavior, while the coordinated dipyridophenazine functions as a `luminescent light switch' for nonaqeous local environments. The complex was synthesized according to a photochemical protocol, purified by high pressure liquid chromatography, and characterized spectroscopically and by mass spectrometry.
