Neutron Diffraction – Recent Applications to Chemical Structure Determination
A brief introduction to the capabilities of the modern Laue neutron diffraction technique is given, and recent examples of successful solutions of structural problems are highlighted.
Intermolecular interactions in molecular crystals: what's in a name?
It is shown how all of these interactions - and hydrogen bonds - can be readily understood through their common origin in the redistribution of electron density that results from chemical bonding. Expand
Beta-diketiminate-stabilized magnesium(I) dimers and magnesium(II) hydride complexes: synthesis, characterization, adduct formation, and reactivity studies.
The preparation and characterization of a series of magnesium(II) iodide complexes incorporating beta-diketiminate ligands of varying steric bulk and denticity, namely, [(ArNCMe)(2)CH](-) (Ar=phenyl,Expand
Plasmonic twinned silver nanoparticles with molecular precision
The Ag nanoparticles reported in this work serve as excellent models to understand the detailed structure distortion within twinned metal nanostructures and also how silver nanoparticles can span from the molecular to the metallic regime. Expand
High-yield synthesis and crystal structure of a green Au₃₀ cluster co-capped by thiolate and sulfide.
A green gold-cluster, Au30S(StBu)18, was successfully prepared in high yield and crystallographically characterized, and a mixed layer of staple Au-thiolate units, bridging thiolates and a μ3-S(2-). Expand
Rapid and convergent assembly of the polycyclic framework assigned to the cytotoxic marine alkaloid halitulin
Compound 3, representing the tetra-O-methyl ether derivative of structure, 1, assigned to the cytotoxic marine alkaloid halitulin, has been assembled in a convergent manner from the readily availableExpand
Whole-Cell Biotransformation of m-Ethyltoluene into 1S,6R-5-Ethyl-1,6-dihydroxycyclohexa-2,4-diene-1-carboxylic Acid as an Approach to the C-Ring of the Binary Indole–Indoline Alkaloid Vinblastine
The title compound 3, a potential building block for the construction of analogues of the clinically important anti-cancer agent vinblastine (1), has been prepared in an efficient manner through aExpand
Synthesis and crystal structure of a complex of a tetranucleating macrocyclic ligand which binds four NiII ions in a square arrangement with a µ4-hydroxo group at the centre
The tetra Schiff base macrocycle formed by condensation of two molecules of 2,6-diformyl-5-methylphenol with two molecules of 2,6-bis(aminomethyl)-5-methylphenol binds four nickel(II) ions at theExpand
Structural and Electrochemical Studies of Some Cobalt(III) Complexes of 2-Aminomethylbenzimidazole and 2-(N-Methylaminomethyl)benzimidazole
A number of mixed-ligand cobalt(III) complexes containing either the ligand 2-aminomethylbenzimidazole (ambi) or its N-methyl derivative, namely 2-(N-methylaminomethyl)benzimidazole (mambi), haveExpand
