dc.description.abstractThe synthesis of the cationic gold(I) complexes [Au(CuCC5H4N)(CH3-PTA)] X (X = I, 1; X = OTf, 4), [Au(C equivalent to CC5H4N-CH3)(PTA)] X (X = I, 2; X = OTf = 5; PTA = 1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphatricyclo[]decane) and [Au(CuCC5H4N-CH3)(DAPTA)] X (X = I, 3; X = OTf = 6, DAPTA = 3,7-diacetyl-1,3,7-triaza-5-phosphabicyclo[ 3.3.1]nonane) results in cationic complexes with unexpected supramolecular assemblies in water ranging from rod-like structures (1) to vesicles (2 and 3) and square-like structures (5 and 6). These morphologies are completely different from the fibers previously obtained with their parent neutral complexes [Au(C equivalent to C5H4N)(PTA)] and [Au(C equivalent to C5H4N)(DAPTA)]. Nevertheless, the introduction of triflate as a counterion in 1 (complex 4) gives rise to the formation of a highly soluble complex in water which does not display any significant aggregation in solution. These results reveal the importance of the introduction of a positive charge on global supramolecular assemblies and how the counterion can also modify the resulting package. Interestingly, we have also proved that the aggregation of complexes 2, 3, 5 and 6 is also affected by the solvent with direct influence on their absorption and emission properties and the global morphology of the aggregates.
