Abstract: In the last decades, compounds with 'Aggregation-Induced Emission' (AIE), which are weakly or non- emissive at all in solution but exhibit a strong luminescence in aggregated states, have emerged as an extraordinary breakthrough in the field of luminescent materials, allowing to circumvent 'Aggre- gation Caused Quenching' (ACQ), which in many cases prevents the development of efficient solid-state materials for optoelectronic applications. Since the discovery of AIE, many AIE-active materials have been developed, most of them composed of organic molecules, and thus fluorescent in nature. Although a wide range of applications such as bioimaging, sensing, multi-stimuli responsive materials, and optoelectronic devices have been proposed for this new class of materials, triplet harvesting phosphorescent materials have much longer lifetimes as compared to their singlet harvesting analogues, and for this particular reason, the development of AIE- active phosphorescent materials seems to be a promising strategy from the applications point of view. In this respect, the synthesis of new AIE-active systems including heavy metals that would facilitate the population of low-lying excited triplet states via spin-orbit coupling (SOC), for which the strength increases as the fourth power of atomic number, i.e. Z4 , is highly desirable. This review covers the design and synthetic strategies used to obtain the AIEgens reported in the literature that contain either d-block metals such as Cu(I), Zn(II), Re(I), Ru(II), Pd(II), Ir(III), Pt(II), Au(I), and Os(IV), describing the mechanisms proposed to explain their AIE. New emerging high-tech applications such as OLEDs, chemical sensors or bioimaging probes proposed for these materials are also discussed in a separate section.
