Gray group publishes luminescent platinum(II) isonitriles

In DOE-funded research, undergraduate Mengdi Li and graduate student Ted Liska in the laboratory of Thomas Gray, in collaboration with the university of Houston and Purdue University, have discovered platinum(II) isonitrile complexes that phosphoresce in solution and the solid state.  Triplet-state light emitters have potential applications in the design of energy-efficient solid-state lighting.  Read about it in Organometallics.
