1.Synthesis of Linearly Ordered Multinuclear Complexes Designed to Applications for Nanoscale Molecule Devices
Extended metal atom chains (EMACs) have attracted increasing attentions in relation to their unusual electronic, optical, and magnetic properties with respect to metal strings and potential applications for nanoscale molecule devices such as molecular wire, transistors, and sensors. However, their examples are extremely limited due to difficulties in their syntheses and characterization. We have successfully synthesized linearly ordered tri-, tetra-, hexa-, and octanuclear complexes supported by methylene-bridged multidentate phosphine ligands. We have studied hexanualer platinum and octanuclear palladium complexes for the application of molecular wire. Furthermore, we have recently reported tetranuclear gold complexes strongly luminescent and their intense emissions are sensitively quenched by chloride anions.

2. Development of New Reactions with Multinuclear Active Centers

 Transition metals have their own unique reactivities and are widely used as catalysts for mass production of medicine, agrichemicals, and electronic materials in the industrial chemistry. However, these catalysts are heterogeneous noble metal solid compounds or mononuclear complexes in many cases. In contrast, transition-metal clusters have attracted considerable interest due to not only surface models of solid catalyst, but also their diverse properties such as catalyst, electronic, and magnetic devices induced by synergistic effects between adjacent metal centers. Our group has synthesized various homo- and heteromultinuclear structures supported by multidentate phosphine-based ligands, aiming to develop environmentally benign and energy saving catalytic processes. Especially, cheap and abundant copper metal clusters have attracted growing attention as base metallic materials alternative to rare and noble metals. We have recently found reduction of CO2 to formic acid under mild condition by a dinuclear copper hydride complex and reversible dioxygen binding on dinuclear rhodium centers.
