Purpose To create a light emitting diode from organic components in standard laboratory conditions. Procedure On the first day of our procedure we synthesized the electroluminescent ruthenium complex by preparing a solution of NaH 2 PO 2 to be used as the reducing agent on a small amount of RuCl 3 3H 2 O. These were combined with 2,2”dipyridyl and heated until a bright orange color was observed. This solution was cooled to room temperature followed by an ice bath to allow crystal formation. It was finally vacuum filtered and stored until the next day of lab. The ruthenium complex was dissolved in a small amount of acetonitrile and then dropped onto a glass plate coated with a tin-oxide. Once the ruthenium solution evaporated to dryness a small drop of liquid gallium-indium alloy was placed on it and a current applied to it. Results
