Abstract

The project aims to synthesise and examine the properties of crystalline coordination polymers that exhibit unusual and technologically useful properties arising from long-range electronic communication. The focus will be on materials in which the modular components (ligands, metals and counterions) are present in mixed valence states. The experimental investigation will be supported by dispersion-corrected, periodic-boundary DFT calculations which will be employed to both rationalise behaviour and provide direction for the generation of new materials.
