Complexes de ruthénium (II) intégrant l'unité photochromique Diméthyldihydropyrène : Vers de nouvelles photo-réactivités

Abstract : The work of this thesis is devoted to the development of original photo-switchable ruthenium(II) complexes incorporating the photochromic Dimethyldihydropyrene (DHP) / Cyclophanediene (CPD), for future optoelectronic molecular devices.In order to realize complex systems capable of reproducing the functions of a logic circuit, an interesting strategy is based on the association of photo-switchable molecules and metal complexes. However, this strategy is confronted with some major obstacles, generally associated with the loss of the switching properties of organic photochromes. In response to previous results confirming this trend, two new families of DHP-based terpyridine ruthenium(II) complexes have been synthesized. Since the presence of pyridinium function significantly improves the isomerization properties of the DHP core, the metal centers were connected either via a pyridinium benzyl linkage (Ru-Lpy+tpy) or via an aryl pyridinium linkage (Ru-LZincke). Although operating at lower energy, Ru-LZincke complex exhibits lessened performance, whereas Ru-Lpy+tpy complexes exhibit a notable preservation of their switching properties. Following the discovery of an original photo-reactivity favored by the presence of metal center, an analogue family based on ruthenium (II) bipyridine complexes (Ru-Lpy+bpy) was studied. Even if the mechanisms are not completely rationalized, Ru-Lpy+bpy complexes have proved to be remarkable candidates for the realization of quantitatively reversible photo-switches in the visible domain.
