A study is conducted to demonstrate light-emitting self-assembled materials based on d⁸ and d¹⁰ transition metal complexes. The study reveals that the resulting interplay of various noncovalent interactions can lead to the generation of interesting supramolecular self-assemblies and/or aggregation phenomenon together with a careful control of the solvophobicity and solvophilicity of the ligands, along with subtle changes in the structures of the metal complexes. The scope of the study is confined to homo- and heterometallic d⁸ and d¹⁰ metal-based self-assembled and aggregated materials that involve noncovalent interactions.
