Abstract

In this manuscript we outline recent results on the synthesis of heterobimetallic coordination complexes involving bismuth and the transition elements using either bifunctional ligands or Lewis acid-base adduct formation as a synthetic strategy. Significant structural features in the molecular heterobimetallic species resulting from these two approaches are highlighted. The ability of these complexes to act as single-source precursors for the formation of advanced oxide nanomaterials has been investigated, and the potential of these complexes versus traditional methods for the formation of advanced ceramics is discussed.
