Based on previous work related to the design and application of rigid tridentate phosphine-pyridine-phenyl coordination offered by a PNC-pincer ligand upon cyclometalation to nickel, the synthesis, spectroscopic and solid state characterization and redox-reactivity of two NiII (PNC) complexes featuring either a methyl ( 2CH3 ) or CF3 co-ligand ( 2CF3 ) are described. One-electron oxidation is proposed to furnish C-C reductive elimination, as deduced from a combined chemical, electrochemical, spectroscopic and computational study...

We report the coordination chemistry of indole based tripodal tetraphosphine ligands to iron(II), cobalt(II) and nickel(II). These complexes are formed by simple synthetic protocols and were characterized by a combination of spectroscopic techniques and single-crystal X-ray analysis. The molecular structures as determined by X-ray diffraction show that the geometry of the nickel and cobalt complexes are distorted trigonal bipyramidal. The monocationic iron(II) complexes also have distorted trigonal bipyramidal geometries, but the dicationic analogue has an octahedral geometry...

In this study, the selective 1,2-addition of diethylzinc to the ketone functionality of BMdiPh IK [bis(1-methyl-4,5-diphenylimidazolyl)ketone] is shown. The reaction product is isolated in a dimeric form with a planar Zn2 (µ-O)2 -motif keeping the two monomers together. This compound can serve as a model for reactive intermediates in the catalytic alkylation of ketones with diorganozinc reagents. Hydrolysis of this binuclear zinc compound leads to isolation of the C-alkylated product in 89 % yield. A reaction pathway is proposed in which BMdiPh IK initially coordinates to diethylzinc as a bidentate bis(nitrogen) ligand...

The Eu3+/2+ redox couple provides a convenient design platform for responsive p O2 sensors for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Specifically the Eu2+ ion provides T 1w contrast enhancement under hypoxic conditions in tissues, whereas, under normoxia, the Eu3+ ion can produce contrast from chemical exchange saturation transfer in MRI. The oxidative stability of the Eu3+/2+ redox couple for a series of tetraaza macrocyclic complexes was investigated in this work using cyclic voltammetry. A series of Eu-containing cyclen-based macrocyclic complexes revealed positive shifts in the Eu3+/2+ redox potentials with each replacement of a carboxylate coordinating arm of the ligand scaffold with glycinamide pendant arms...

The reactions of the tetrahedral diphosphorus [Cp2Mo2(CO)4(η(2)-P2)] (1; Cp = C5H5) complex with Ag[Al{OC(CF3)3}4] (AgTEF) (A) and Ag[FAl{OC(C6F5)(C6F10)}3] (AgFAl) (B) were studied. The first reaction led to the formation of the [Ag2(η(2)-1)2(η(1):η(1)-1)2][TEF]2 (2) dimer and the [Ag2(η(1):η(1)-1)3] n [TEF]2n (3) coordination polymer, whereas the second reaction afforded the [Ag2(η(1):η(1)-1)2(η(1)-CH2Cl2)2(η(2)-C7H8)2][FAl]2 (4) or the [Ag2(η(2)-1)2(η(1):η(1)-1)2][FAl]2 (5) dimer and the [Ag2(η(1):η(1)-1)4] n [FAl]2n (6) coordination polymer...

The reaction of Fe2(pdt)(CO)6 with two equivalents of Ph2PC6H4NH2 (PNH2) affords the amido hydride HFe2(pdt)(CO)2(PNH2)(PNH) {[H1H](0), pdt(2-) = CH2(CH2S(-))2}. Isolated intermediates in this conversion include Fe2(pdt)(CO)5-(κ(1)-PNH2) and Fe2(pdt)(CO)4(κ(2)-PNH2). X-ray crystallographic analysis of [H1H](0) shows that the chelating amino/amido-phosphine ligands occupy trans-dibasal positions. The (31)P NMR spectrum indicates that [H1H](0) undergoes rapid proton exchange between the amido and amine centers...

Ruthenium complexes capable of light-triggered cytotoxicity are appealing potential prodrugs for photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photoactivated chemotherapy (PACT). Two groups of Ru(II) polypyridyl complexes with 2-(2-pyridyl)-benzazole ligands were synthesized and investigated for their photochemical properties and anticancer activity to compare strained and unstrained systems that are likely to have different biological mechanisms of action. The structure-activity relationship was focused on the benzazole core bioisosterism and replacement of coligands in Ru(II) complexes...

The three-component reaction of the tetrahedral diphosphorus complex [Cp2Mo2(CO)4(η(2)-P2)] (1), with Ag[BF4] (2) in the presence of 2,2'-bipyrimidine (3) leads to the formation of the two novel two-dimensional networks 4 and 5. Compound 4 is a new two-dimensional organometallic-organic hybrid polymer, while derivative 5 represents a unique two-dimensional organometallic-inorganic-organic hybrid polymer. These results show the possibility of synthesizing a new class of coordination polymers, which could not be obtained from two-component reactions with organic molecules in addition of metal ions...

This contribution explores the influences of incorporating electron-withdrawing CF3 and halide groups into β-diketiminate iron complexes of tetrazene and isocyanide. The synthesis of a new halogenated β-diketimine (L(CF3,Cl)H) was accomplished via two different methods, including a novel microwave-assisted synthesis that improves the yield of the difficult condensation. Treatment of an iron(II) complex of this ligand with reductant and azide gives two diiron complexes with novel tetrazenes as bridging ligands...

Six-coordinate Mn(III) complexes are typically high-spin (S = 2), however, the scorpionate ligand, both in its traditional, hydridotris(pyrazolyl)borate form, Tp(-) and Tp*(-) (the latter with 3,5-dimethylpyrazole substituents) and in an aryltris(carbene)borate (i.e., N-heterocyclic carbene, NHC) form, [Ph(MeIm)3B](-), (MeIm = 3-methylimidazole) lead to formation of bis(scorpionate) complexes of Mn(III) with spin triplet ground states; three of which were investigated herein: [Tp2Mn]SbF6 (1SBF6), [Tp*2Mn]SbF6 (2SBF6), and [{Ph(MeIm)3B}2Mn]CF3SO3 (3CF3SO3)...

The photochemical reaction of Fe2(S2)(CO)6 and Ph2CS affords the perthiolate Fe2(S3CPh2)(CO)6 (1) in good yield. As confirmed crystallographically, 1 contains a previously elusive perthiolate ligand. The related reaction of Fe2(S2)(CO)5-(PPh3) and Ph2CS gave Fe2(S3CPh2)(CO)5(PPh3). Although Fe3S2(CO)9 and Ph2CS failed to efficiently give Fe2(S2CPh2)(CO)6, this compound could be prepared by desulfurization of 1 using PPh3.

Phosphaferrocenes in combination with coinage metal salts proved to be excellent building blocks in supramolecular chemistry for the buildup of oligomeric and polymeric assemblies. The synthesis of a series of novel phosphaferrocenes containing the 1,3-P2C3 iPr3 and/or the 1,2,4-P3C2 iPr2 ligand is described herein. The self-assembly processes of the 1,3-diphospha-, 1,2,4-triphospha-, and 1,1',2,3',4-pentaphosphaferrocenes with Cu(I) halides led to the formation of 1D or 2D polymers. With [Cp*Fe(η(5)-P2C3 iPr3)] (Cp* = η(5)-C5Me5), infinite chains are formed, whereas with [(η(5)-P3C2 iPr2)Fe(η(5)-P2C3 iPr3)] 1D ladderlike structures are obtained...

A synthesis of the 2-phosphathioethynolate anion, PCS(-), under ambient conditions is reported. The coordination chemistry of PCO(-), PCS(-) and their nitrogen-containing congeners is also explored. Photolysis of a solution of W(CO)6 in the presence of PCO(-) [or a simple ligand displacement reaction using W(CO)5(MeCN)] affords [W(CO)5(PCO)](-) (1). The cyanate and thiocyanate analogues, [W(CO)5(NCO)](-) (2) and [W(CO)5(NCS)](-) (3), are also synthesised using a similar methodology, allowing for an in-depth study of the bonding properties of this family of related ligands...

Reaction of a macrocyclic ligand precursor comprising two bis(carboxamido)pyridine units (H4L4) connected by ethylene linkers with NMe4OH and CuX2 (X = Cl, OAc, or OTf) yielded monocopper complexes [NMe4][(H2L4)Cu(X)] (X = Cl (3), OAc (4), or OH (5)), in contrast to previous work using a related ligand with ortho-phenylene linkers wherein dicopper compounds were isolated. X-ray structures of the complexes revealed hydrogen bonding from the free carboxamide N-H groups in the doubly protonated form of the ligand (H2L4(-) ) to the monodentate fourth ligand coordinated to the Cu(II) ion...

A series of new hybrid peralkylated-amine-guanidine ligands based on a 1,3-propanediamine backbone and their Cu-O2 chemistry is reported. The copper(I) complexes react readily with O2 at low temperatures in aprotic solvents with weakly coordinating anions to form exclusively bis(μ-oxo) dicopper species (O). Variation of the substituents on each side of the hybrid bidentate ligand highlights that less sterically demanding amine and guanidine substituents increase not only the thermal stability of the formed O cores but enhance inner-sphere phenolate hydroxylation pathways...

Four manganese carbonyl complexes of the type [MnBr(CO)3(NˆN)] (NˆN = α-diimine ligands) namely [MnBr(CO)3(bpy)] (1), [MnBr(CO)3(phen)] (2), [MnBr(CO)3(dafo)] (3) and [MnBr(CO)3(pyzphen)] (4) (where bpy = bipyridine, phen = 1,10-phenanthroline, dafo = 4,5-diazafluoren-9-one and pyzphen = pyrazino[2,3-f][1,10]-phenanthroline) have been synthesized and structurally characterized. These four complexes containing the fac-[Mn(CO)3] motif release CO upon illumination with low power visible and UV light. The CO release rates and the absorption maxima of the complexes are however very similar despite systematic increase in structural complexity in the rigid α-diimine ligand frames...

Calcium titanate (CaTiO3) nanofibers with controlled microstructure were fabricated by a combination of sol-gel and electrospinning approaches. The fiber morphology has been found to rely significantly on the precursor composition. Altering the volume ratio of ethanol to acetic acid from 3.5 to 1.25 enables the morphology of the CaTiO3 nanofibers to be transformed from fibers with a circular cross section to curved ribbon-like structures. Ibuprofen (IBU) was used as a model drug to investigate the drug-loading capacity and drug-release profile of the nanofibers...

The air- and moisture-stable iron-sulfur carbonyl clusters Fe3S2(CO)7(dppm) (1) and Fe3S2(CO)7(dppf) (2) carrying the bisphosphine ligands bis(diphenylphosphanyl)methane (dppm) and 1,1'-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)ferrocene (dppf) were prepared and fully characterized. Two alternative synthetic routes based on different thionation reactions of triiron dodecacarbonyl were tested. The molecular structures of the methylene-bridged compound 1 and the ferrocene-functionalized derivative 2 were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction...

A single polypeptide chain may provide an astronomical number of conformers. Nature selected only a trivial number of them through evolution, composing an alphabet of scaffolds, that can afford the complete set of chemical reactions needed to support life. These structural templates are so stable that they allow several mutations without disruption of the global folding, even having the ability to bind several exogenous cofactors. With this perspective, metal cofactors play a crucial role in the regulation and catalysis of several processes...

Reaction of [Ti4Zr4O6(OBu)4(OMc)16] (OMc = methacrylate) with acetylacetone (acacH) resulted in dissection of the cluster and formation of [Ti(OBu)2(acac)2] and the smaller cluster [Ti2Zr4O4(OMc)16]. In contrast, the same reaction with [Zr6O4(OH)4(OOCR)12]2 ·6RCOOH (R = Et, CH2CH=CH2) led to site-selective substitution of two carboxylate ligands and formation of isostructural [Zr6O4(OH)4(OOCR)12-x (acac) x ]2 ·6RCOOH (x ≤ 1).
