Abstract

Solvothermal reactions of AgNO3 with N1,N4-bis(5-fluoropyridin-3-yl)succinamide (bfps) in MeCN afforded the one-dimensional cationic coordination polymer {[Ag(bfps)]NO3}n (1). Upon treatment of 1 with the anionic azo dye orange II (NaOII) in aqueous solution, the NO3 - anions of 1 could be gradually exchanged by the OII- anions via an anion-exchange process. The resulting OII anion-exchanged products {[Ag(bfps)](NO3)0.85(OII)0.15}n (2) and {[Ag(bfps)](NO3)0.1(OII)0.9}n (3) were formed by different molar ratios of 1 and the newly formed phase "{[Ag(bfps)](OII)}n" (4), confirmed by PXRD patterns. Relative to those of the precursors 1 and NaOII, complexes 2 and 3 demonstrated enlarged photocurrent responses and reduced dielectric constants and dielectric losses, which could be correlated with the OII- contents in their structures. Complex 3 acquired a stable anodic photocurrent of 12.06 μA, which was 4.9 times higher than that of 1. The dielectric constant (ϵr = 4.2) and dielectric loss (0.002) of 3 were nearly frequency independent in the range from 1 to 106 Hz. The results provide an interesting insight into the rational assembly of CP-dye complexes and their tunable optoelectronic applications.
