Coordination-directed self-assembly of palladium/platinum square complexes

Robert Moreno, University of Texas at El Paso


This research focuses on the development of mononuclear platinum complexes; multinuclear platinum complexes, both of which self assemble into micelles in the presence of water. This work also involved the synthesis of a reverse micelle that allows for detection of water nanocrystals within a defined size molecular envelope. The novel synthesis of these compounds allows for ligand substitution and the creation of a library of compounds.
