Halogen bond mediated crystal engineering of metal complexes

Pfrunder, Michael Craig (2014) Halogen bond mediated crystal engineering of metal complexes. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This project explored the potential for halogen bonds to predictably organise metal-containing molecular building blocks in crystalline materials. A novel method for the halogen bond mediated crystal engineering of metal complexes was discovered, which led to the preparation of new materials with potential applications in molecular switching devices and advanced memory storage systems.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
