The Synthesis and Characterization of Vapochromatic Platinum Extended Linear Chain Materials

This research studies the potential for platinum-based extended linear chain materials as vapochromic detectors of benzene and its derivatives. By synthesizing platinum materials with a variety of substituents, we hope to compile structural data that will inform synthesis of future reversible and vapochromic detection materials.
