Abstract

Upon confinement of a trinuclear gold (I) pyrazolate complex in a hexagonal silicate channel, the luminescence center formed by a Au1-Au 1 metallophilic interaction is not only protected against thermal disruption but also strongly encouraged to self-recover from a heat-induced structural damage. This nanoscopic template effect is negligible for a lamellar silica framework. [Figure Presented] [Figure Presented]
