Valence-tautomeric metal-organic nanoparticles
I. Imaz, D. Maspoch and D. Ruiz-Molina, members of the Nanostructured Functional Materials group at CIN2 (CSIC-ICN), together with other researchers published the paper 'Valence-tautomeric metal-organic nanoparticles' on Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 47, 1857 (2008).
Nano- and microparticles are involved in diverse applications ranging from data storage, catalysis, photonics, electronics, lithography, and microlenses to biosensors. An important goal in this area is the fabrication of particles with novel compositions that can offer interesting properties for new applications. Coordination polymers are a class of solids created by the association of metal ions and multitopic organic ligands, and they have recently shown a wide range of promising properties in gas sorption, sensing, catalysis, ion exchange, magnetism, or optics. Because of these properties and their synthetic flexibility, coordination polymers seem excellent candidates for the fabrication of functional nanoscale metal-organic particles (NMOPs).
