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...

Создание структурированных подложек из оксида алюминия с использованием технологий "снизу вверх", совместимых с приложениями нанотехнологий, по-прежнему является актуальной проблемой. Мы представляем новый подход для создания высокоупорядоченных структур в анодированном оксиде алюминия с большими расстояниями между нанопорами с помощью прямого одноэтапного процесса анодирования. Использование прозрачных изоляторов делает такие анодные слои применимыми в качестве шаблонов для наноструктурированных фотовольтаических или фотоэлектрохимических устройств.


Preparation of pre-patterned alumina substrates using bottom-up techniques compatible with nanotechnology applications is still a challenge. We present a novel methodology to achieve superior order in ‘anodic’ alumina with large interpore distances by a convenient one-step anodization process. The use of transparent insulators renders such anodic layers applicable as templates for nanostructured photovoltaic or photoelectrochemical devices.

Синтезирован ряд дииминовых лигандов на основе 2-пиридил-1Н-фенантро[9,10-d]имидазола (L1, L2). Связывание основного мотива L1 с антраценсодержащими фрагментами дает бихромофорные соединения L3-L5, из которых L4 и L5 принимают донор-акцепторную архитектуру. L1-L5 показывают сильную флуоресценцию в жидкой среде, демонстрируют обратимый отклик на изменение pH, для L4 и L5 наблюдается эмиссионный сольватохромиз. Лиганды L1-L5 использовали для синтеза соответствующих комплексов Re(I), которые демонстрируют необычную двойную эмиссию синглетного и триплетного происхождения.


A series of diimine ligands has been designed on the basis of 2-pyridyl-1 H-phenanthro[9,10- d]imidazole (L1, L2). Coupling the basic motif of L1 with anthracene-containing fragments affords the bichromophore compounds L3-L5, of which L4 and L5 adopt a donor-acceptor architecture. The latter allows intramolecular charge transfer with intense absorption bands in the visible spectrum (lowest λabs 464 nm (ε = 1.2 × 104 M-1 cm-1) and 490 nm (ε = 5.2 × 104 M-1 cm-1) in CH2Cl2 for L4 and L5, respectively). L1-L5 show strong fluorescence in a fluid medium (Φem = 22-92%, λem 370-602 nm in CH2Cl2); discernible emission solvatochromism is observed for L4 and L5. In addition, the presence of pyridyl (L1-L5) and dimethylaminophenyl (L5) groups enables reversible alteration of their optical properties by means of protonation. Ligands L1-L5 were used to synthesize the corresponding [Re(CO)3X(diimine)] (X = Cl, 1-5; X = CN, 1-CN) complexes. 1 and 2 exhibit unusual dual emission of singlet and triplet parentage, which originate from independently populated 1ππ* and 3MLCT excited states. In contrast to the majority of the reported Re(I) carbonyl luminophores, complexes 3-5 display moderately intense ligand-based fluorescence from an anthracene-containing secondary chromophore and complete quenching of emission from the 3MLCT state presumably due to the triplet-triplet energy transfer (3MLCT → 3ILCT).

Синтезированы и структурно охарактеризованы комплексы золота (I) с фосфанил- и арсанилборанами. Некоторые соединения проявляют люминесценцию. Электронная структура комплексов проанализирована методами DFT.


The structural and photophysical properties of a series of new Au(I) compounds have been studied. The reactions of AuCl(tht) with the phosphanyl‐ and arsanylboranes RR'EBH2NMe3 (E = P, As; R = H, Ph; R' = H, Ph, tBu) afford the complexes [AuCl(RR'EBH2NMe3)]. In the solid state, [AuCl(H2PBH2NMe3)]2 (2a) is a dimer showing unsupported intermolecular aurophilic interactions with short Au…Au distances. In contrast, [AuCl(H2AsBH2NMe3)]n (2b) aggregates to form 1D chains. Organic substituents on the pnictogen atoms lead to discrete molecules in [AuCl(RR'PBH2NMe3)] (2c: R = H, R' = tBu; 2d: R = R' = Ph). To increase the aurophilicity, the ionic homoleptic complexes [Au(RR'EBH2NMe3)2][AlCl4] (3a‐d) have been synthesized for which 3a,b form chains in the solid state and exhibit luminescence. The emissions show a drastic red shift with temperature decrease correlating with decreasing Au...Au distances. DFT calculations provide insight into the bonding situation of the products.
