Koshevoy, Heterometallic cluster-capped tetrahedral assemblies with postsynthetic modification of the metal cores Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., (2018), doi: 10.1002/anie.201809058

    Combining the star‐shaped alkynyl ligands with low‐nuclearity gold–copper triphosphane clusters produces 3D metallocage aggregates, which demonstrate room temperature phosphorescence in solution (max Φem=0.6). Their luminescence mainly originates from cluster‐localized metal‐to‐ligand charge transfer excited state. These supramolecular assemblies can be easily converted into the isostructural gold‐silver congeners by the direct exchange of the metal ions. Such modification of the terminal metal cores switches the emission to the intraligand (alkyne) electronic transitions of the triplet manifold, that represents an unusual optical functionality among the metallocycle/metallocage complexes.

    The response characteristics of the optical chemical sensors (optodes), namely response range, response span and sensitivity are quantitatively related to the composition of the sensor phase for the first time. The dependence of the characteristics of ion-selective bulk optodes on the concentrations of the indicator, ionophore and ionic additive (ion-exchanger) are simulated numerically and experimentally verified with Na+- and K+-selective colorimetric optodes...

    Transition metal–carbon–nitrogen catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) are promising and challenging. Cu is a potential transition metal to form efficient ORR catalysts for fuel cells. Herein, a facile method is developed to synthesize a highly dispersed Cu−NX and N‐doped graphene (Cu−N−G) catalyst. The Cu−N−G catalyst shows a half‐wave potential (E1/2) of 0.859 V, which is comparable to the commercial Pt/C catalyst (0.856 V), and is among the best compared with the previously reported Cu‐based materials. In addition, such a catalyst shows good stability and methanol tolerance in alkaline media...

S. Heinl, A. Y. Timoshkin, J. Müller, M. Scheer Unexpected differences in the reactivity between the phosphorus and arsenic derivatives [(CpBIGFe)2(µ,η4:4-E4)] (E = P and As), Chem. Commun., 2018, 54, 2244-2247

Статья посвящена исследованию структуры и реакционной спсобности комплексов [{CpBIGFe(CO)2}2(μ,η1:1-E4)] E=P,As). Показано, что при фотолизе происходит удаление СО с образованием двухпалубных сэндвичевых комплексов [(CpBIGFe)2(μ,η4:4-Е4)], причем структуры комплексов фософора и мышьяка существенно различаются.


Different reaction pathways were determined between thermolysis and photolysis reactions of the butterfly complex [{CpBIGFe(CO)2}2(μ,η1:1-As4)] (1b). The thermolysis leads to novel arsenic-rich compounds [(CpBIGFe)2(μ,η4:4-As4)] (2b), [(CpBIGFe)334:4:4-As6)] (4) and [CpBIGFe(η5-As5)] (5), whereas the photolysis of [{CpBIGFe(CO)2}2(μ,η1:1-E4)] (1a: E = P; 1b: E = As) exclusively results in the decarbonylation products [(CpBIGFe)2(μ,η4:4-P4)] (2a), 2b and [(CpBIGFe)(μ,η4:1-As4)(CpBIGFe(CO)2)] (3). The E4 complexes 2a and 2b show unique structural differences in the solid state despite their related compositions.

С использованием политопных лигандов, несущих «мягкую» фосфорную и «жесткую» кислородную функции, была синтезирована серия биядерных комплексных соединений Au(I). Все соединения этой серии полностью охарактеризованы при помощи спектроскопии ЯМР, в том числе с использованием 2D методик, элементного анализа и монокристального РСА.  Полученные соединения являются яркими люминофорами в твердой фазе с широкими полосами эмиссии, максимум которых лежит в районе 450–600 нм. Большой Стоксовский сдвиг и зависимость времени жизни люминесценции от кислорода подтверждает преимущественно триплетный характер эмиссии. Было обнаружено, что параметры эмиссии (квантовые выходы и времена жизни возбужденных состояний) соединений зависят от температуры.


A series of gold(I) iodide complexes 111 have been prepared from di-, tri-, and tetraphosphane ligands. Crystallographic studies reveal that the di- (17) and tetrametallic (11) compounds feature linearly coordinated gold(I) ions with short aurophilic contacts. Their luminescence behavior is determined by the combined influence of the phosphane properties, metal–metal interaction, and intermolecular lattice-defined interactions. The proposed variable contribution of 3(X+M)-centered (X=halogen; M=metal) and 3XLCT (halogen to ligand charge transfer) electronic transitions into the lowest lying excited state, which is influenced by supramolecular packing, is presumably responsible for the alteration of room-temperature emission color from green (λ=545 nm, for 11) to near-IR (λ=698 nm, for 2). Dinuclear compounds 6 and 7 exhibit distinct luminescence thermochromism with a blueshift up to 5750 cm−1 upon cooling. Such dramatic change of emission energy is assigned to the presence of two coupled triplet excited states of 3ππ* and 3(X+M)C/3XLCT nature, the presence of which depends on both molecular structure and the crystal lattice arrangement.

Впервые созданы нанопористые иридиевые электроды и исследована их  электрохимическая активность для реакции окисления воды (выделения кислорода). Электроды представляют собой нанопористый анодированный алюминий, с морфологией прямых цилиндрических нанопор. Стенки нанопор с помощью атомно-слоевого осаждения покрыты металлическим слоем иридия. Продемонстрировано, что такие электроды обеспечивают достижение умеренных плотностей тока при очень низких перенапряжениях, что делает такие электроды перспективными для создания аккумуляторов с высокой степенью реверсивности.


Nanoporous iridium electrodes are prepared and electrochemically investigated towards the water oxidation (oxygen evolution) reaction. The preparation is based on ‘anodic’ aluminum oxide templates, which provide straight, cylindrical nanopores. Their walls are coated using atomic layer deposition (ALD) with a newly developed reaction which results in a metallic iridium layer. The ALD film growth is quantified by spectroscopic ellipsometry and X-ray reflectometry. The morphology and composition of the electrodes are characterized by scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction. Their catalytic activity is quantified for various pore geometries by cyclic voltammetry, steady-state electrolysis, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. With an optimal pore length of L≈17–20 μm, we achieve current densities of J=0.28 mA cm−2 at pH 5 and J=2.4 mA cm−2 at pH 1. This platform is particularly competitive for achieving moderate current densities at very low overpotentials, that is, for a high degree of reversibility in energy storage.
