They have been widely employed as acceptors for charge-transfer complex
formation, as photo-sensitizers and electron transport materials, in the preparation of complexing phases for high performance liquid chromatography and thin liquid chromatography, as complexing agents for optical resolution, and as spray reagents for nondestructive detection of many classes of biologically active compounds, poly-aromatics and hetero- aromatics .
Based on these facts we can suggest that the main result of this interaction is the formation of a charge-transfer complex between heteropolyacid anion clusters and conformationally distorted polymer chains.
For the investigation of optical, photoluminescence, and photoelectrochemical properties of a charge-transfer complex thin polymer films deposited onto optically transparent quartz substrates were employed.
Using solutions of molecules, Wang studied the light-altering properties of buckyballs alone and of buckyballs linked with another material in a so-called charge-transfer complex
We are currently endeavouring to ascertain whether this charge-transfer complex
can effect intramolecular oxygen-atom transfer to the olefin directly or whether it must first rearrange to a peroxometallacycle of the type conventionally invoked for these processes.
