Our latest article on organometallic liquid crystals and mechanochromism appears online in JACS

February 22, 2014

The article by Markrete and Shuang (PhD 2012) reports the liquid crystalline behavior of platinum complexes, and is entitled "Columnar Liquid Crystallinity and Mechanochromism in Cationic Platinum(II) Complexes". There is a cool video associated demonstrating reversible mechanochromism and featuring the voices of two esteemed former lab members, Shuang Liu and Balta Bonillo!
