Luminescent coordination compounds of d- and f-block elements

Research group 

Marco Bortoluzzi, University Researcher

Research topics

The research concerns the synthesis of photoluminescent coordination compounds with suitable metal centres. In particular, derivatives of trivalent lanthanide ions, of europium(II) and of transition metals such as manganese(II) are deeply studied, together with d/f heteropolymetallic compounds. The luminescent species are used as dopants for the preparation of plastic materials with optical properties. The experimental characterizations are supported by computational modelling based on DFT theory.
