Summary and Outlook

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


In this thesis, the author discussed the design of organic bridging ligands to control the entire moieties of assembled Ln(III) coordination compounds for novel photophysical, thermal, and mechanical properties. These molecular designs provide strong luminescence upon ligand excitation (Chap.  2), tunable emission colors (Chap.  3), glass-formability (Chaps.  4 and  5), and mechanical stress-sensitivity (Chap.  6) depending on the geometrical structures of organic bridging ligands and incorporated Ln(III) ions. In this chapter, a summary of the results, possible applications, and future perspectives are presented.
