Based on N-cyclohexylaminomethanediphosphonic acid (cmdpH 4), four new metal diphosphonate compounds with formula M 3(cmdpH) 2(H 2O) 2 [M=Zn(1), Co(2)] and M 2(cmdpH 2) 2(4,4′-bipy) 0.5(H 2O) [M=Co(3), Mn(4)] have been obtained and structurally determined. Compounds 1 and 2 are isostructural. Within the structure, the M(2)O 6 octahedra are each corner-shared with four PO 3C tetrahedra to form a single layer containing 3- and 7-member rings. Neighboring single layers are pillared by M(1)O 4 tetrahedra, resulting in a novel double-layer structure. The organic moieties of cmdpH 3- are grafted on the two sides of the double layer. Compounds 3 and 4 are also isostructural, displaying a pillared layered structure. Within the inorganic layer, the M(1)O 5 tetragonal pyramids and M(2)NO 5 octahedra are each linked by PO 3C tetrahedra through corner-sharing, forming a layer in the ab plane which contains 3- and 10-member rings. These layers are pillared by 4,4′-bipyridine via coordination with the M(2) atoms from the adjacent layers, leading to a three-dimensional open framework structure with channels generated along the a-axis. The organic groups of cmdpH 2 2- locate within the channels. Magnetic studies show that antiferromagnetic interactions are dominant in compounds 2-4. Field dependent magnetization reveals a spin flop behavior for 2. © 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Two novel coordination compounds [Zn(tbpc)]n (1) and [Cd(tpbc)(H2O)]n (2), where H2tbpc = 2′-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)-[1,1′-biphenyl]-4-carboxylic acid, have been synthesized through hydrothermal method. In 1 and 2, the tbpc adopts different quadridentate bridging modes to connect metal (Zn/Cd) centers to form distinct two-dimensional layers, which are stacked in different sequence. The Cphenyl{single bond}H⋯π interactions play a central role in packing 2D layers to form 3D structure. The preliminary investigation on the thermal stability of the complexes is presented. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Asymmetric trigonal-bipyramidal Zn(II) complex 1 formed by 2-[bis(2-aminoethyl)amino]ethanol (L) was found to be able to promote the cleavage of supercoiled plasmid DNA pBR322 to the nicked and linear DNA via a hydrolytic manner but only in neutral Tris-HCl buffer, no cleavage was observed in HEPES or NaH 2PO 4/Na 2HPO 4 buffer. However, the copper complex 2 of L, possessing the similar coordination geometry, can only promote DNA cleavage via an oxidative mechanism in the presence of ascorbic acid. ESI-MS study implies that complex 1 exist mainly as [Zn(L)] 2+/[Zn(L-H)] + in neutral Tris-HCl buffer. Moreover, there is no discriminable species for complex 1 in HEPES or NaH 2PO 4/Na 2HPO 4 buffer. A phosphate activation mechanism via phosphate coordinating to Zn(II) center of [Zn(L)] 2+/[Zn(L-H)] + to form the stable trigonal-bipyramidal structure is proposed for the hydrolytic cleavage promote by complex 1. For complex 2, the abundance of [Cu(L)Cl] + is higher than that of [Cu(L)] 2+/[Cu(L-H)] + in Tris-HCl buffer. The lower phosphate binding/activating ability of Cu(II) in complex 2 may be the origin for its incapability to promote the hydrolytic DNA cleavage. However, the readily accessible redox potential of Cu(II) makes complex 2 promote the oxidative DNA cleavage. Although the DNA cleavage promoted by complex 1 has no specificity, trigonal-bipyramidal Zn(II) complexes formed by asymmetric tripodal polyamine with ethoxyl pendent should be a novel potential model for practical artificial nuclease. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.

In this study, porous SnO2 nanosheets composed of SnO 2 nanoparticles were prepared by calcining SnS2 nanosheets. The SnO2 nanoparticles have an average diameter of 15-20 nm and porous SnO2 nanosheets have a large specific surface area of 37.39 m2/g. As photoanodes, the dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSCs) based on porous SnO2 nanosheets show a superior power conversion efficiency of 0.562%, improved by 134.2% compared to pure SnO2 nanoplate (0.240%). The efficiency improvement could be attributed to the unique porous architecture, which provides efficient electron channels and excellent ability of light scattering. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

Employing the tetrapodal compound 1,2,3,4-tetra(4-pyridyl)thiophene (TPT) as a bridging ligand, a new metal-organic framework was obtained and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, [Cd(TPT)(N3)2·(H2O)] (1). This polymer exhibits a 2D layer network and an unprecedented 3,4-connected topology, which is constructed from the three-connector TPT and EE azido bridges. It also displays good thermal stability and strong photoluminescence in the blue regionband thus may serve as a candidate of thermally stable blue-light-emitting electroluminescence material. The nature of electronic transitions in the photoluminescent process has also been investigated by means of time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) calculations and molecular orbital analyses, which shows that the luminescent property is ligand-based. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.

Two new Ag(I) complexes {Ag2(L)(NO3)(H 2O)}n (1) and {Ag(L)}n·nH2O (2) have been synthesized via the reaction of silver nitrate and betaine derivative 1-carboxyme-thylpyridinium-3-carboxylate (L) by only changing the metal-to-ligand ratio. The results of X-ray crystallographic analysis indicate that complexes 1 and 2 both crystallize in the monoclinic space group P2 1/c with a = 5.0809(14), b = 17.390(5), c = 13.399(4) Å, β = 91.677(5)°, V = 1183.4(6) Å3, Z = 4, Mr = 475.90, Dc = 2.671 g/cm3, F(000) = 912, μ = 3.352 mm-1, S = 1.259, the final R = 0.0320 and wR = 0.0831 for 2036 observed reflections with I > 2σ(I) for 1 and a = 12.180(2), b = 5.0283(10), c = 14.396(3) Å, β = 94.87(3)°, V = 878.5(3) Å3, Z = 4, Mr = 306.02, Dc = 2.314 g/cm3, F(000) = 600, μ = 2.294 mm-1, S = 1.053, the final R = 0.0283 and wR = 0.0684 for 2011 observed reflections with I > 2σ(I) for 2. Complexes 1 and 2 both feature a unique 2D structure. For 1, the 2D undulated network consists of 1D infinite helical chains running parallel to the b axis, while for 2, the 2D network is made up of 1D tubes along the b axis. Moreover, the Ag···Ag interactions in complexes 1 and 2 are also discussed.

A dicyanovinyl-substituted benzofurazan derivative (C1) was prepared as an efficient ratiometric chemosensor for cyanide anion detection in aqueous acetonitrile solution. Mechanism studies suggested that the nucleophilic addition of cyanide to the α-position of the dicyanovinyl group blocked the ICT progress of C1 and induced remarkable emission and absorption shift (Figure presented). © 2011 American Chemical Society.

1D spin-Peierls-like complexes assembled from [Ni(mnt)2]- with Λ-shaped 1-(4′-R-benzyl)pyridinium derivatives (R represents a substituent) are reviewed, with data on their crystal structures, magnetic properties under ambient conditions as well as under pressure, and the nature of the paramagnetic-to-nonmagnetic transition. In this series of 1D spin systems, the correlation between the magnetic exchange and the anion stacking pattern is addressed by application of density functional theory (DFT) combined with a broken-symmetry approach. The qualitative relationship between the transition enthalpy change and the variation of the magnetic susceptibility in the low-temperature phase is determined. The influence of nonmagnetic doping on the structural and magnetic properties and the magnetic transitions are reported. Furthermore, the effect of the substituent group in the phenyl ring of the cation on the transition temperature and the origin of the transition are discussed. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
