Abstract

Tripodal ligand complexes of copper salts are described that display redox-dependent exciton coupled circular dichroism spectra. Significant spectral amplitude is observed at 400 nm in both solution and microcrystalline films. The synthesis and characterization of two new ligands and the preliminary characterization of the circular dichroism properties of their copper complexes is reported. The results constitute a significant step toward the development of molecules that can be used as on/off molecular switches.
