Inorganic coordination compounds have the impact to be processed into inorganic oxide materials at relatively low temperatures and under benign conditions. They have the advantage compared to other precursor routes, that their molecular structure and elemental composition can be tailored with respect to their metal constitution and surrounding ligand environment to fit the needs of a specific application. According to their chemical composition and their
molecular structure an understanding of oxide materials derived from
such a molecular precursor route can be deduced. To achieve this the
molecular conversion into the oxide phase has to be unravelled. Once
this is obtained the conversion pathway of the precursor compound
allows to understand oxide formation and based on that the electronic
material performance of the functional oxides. The whole process
offers a route to a most complete understanding how a certain ligand
environment can be employed to fine tune the electronic properties of
such oxides. One of our interests in this area is especially devoted to the intriguing electronic properties of transparent oxides (TO). Mono-metallic as well as mixed multi-metallic TO materials have found widespread interest and application as transparent ceramic based materials e.g. for field effect transistors (FET), as transparent electrodes and dielectric materials.
