Lanthanide complexes of the form Ln(hfa)3bpm (where Ln=Nd(III), Gd(III), or Tb(III); hfa=1,1,1,5,5,5-hexafluoroacetylacetone and bpm=2,2'-bipyrimidine) have been structurally characterized. The Nd and Gd complexes form one-dimensional arrays when X-ray-quality crystals are grown by the slow evaporation of concentrated solutions of the complexes. Each metal(More)
To explore the photophysics of platinum acetylide chromophores with strong two-photon absorption cross-sections, we have investigated the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of a series of platinum acetylide complexes that feature highly pi-conjugated ligands substituted with pi-donor or -acceptor moieties. The molecules (numbered 1-4) considered(More)
The title compound, [Tb2(C24H12F9O6S3)2(C8H6N4)].C4H8O2, has two terbium(III) centers bridged by the polyazine ligand 2,2'-bipyrimidine (bpm), which is distorted from planarity by 7.0 (2) degrees . The terminal ligand 4,4,4-trifluoro-1-(2-thienyl)butane-1,3-dione (tta) is bidentate, coordinating through the two O atoms, while the bridging ligand is(More)
The title compound, sodium bis(6-carboxy-1-hydroxy-3-oxo-1,3-dihydro-2,1-benzoxaborol-1-yl)oxidanium, Na(+)·C(16)H(15)B(2)O(13)(-), was prepared in two steps from 2-bromo-p-xylene. Its crystal structure was determined at 140 K and has triclinic ( ̅P1) symmetry. The compound presents a unique structural motif, including two units of the cyclic anhydride of(More)
As part of an effort to develop a spectroscopic structure-property relationship in platinum acetylide oligomers, we have prepared a series of mesoionic bidentate Pt(PBu3)2L2 compounds containing sydnone groups. The ligand is the series o-Syd-(C6H4-C[triple bond]C)n-H, where n = 1-3, designated as Syd-PEn-H. The terminal oligomer unit consists of a sydnone(More)
To explore spectroscopic structure-property relationships in platinum acetylides, we synthesized a series of complexes having the molecular formula trans-bis(tributylphosphine)-bis(4-((9,9-diethyl-7-ethynyl-9H-fluoren-2-yl)ethynyl)-R)-platinum. The substituent, R = NH(2), OCH(3), N(phenyl)(2), t-butyl, CH(3), H, F, benzothiazole, CF(3), CN, and NO(2), was(More)
The title compound, C(9)H(11)NOS, exhibits a unique structural motif, with free rotation of the aliphatic oxathiane ring about the C-C bond connecting this moiety to the aromatic pyridine ring. The structure elucidation was undertaken due to its potential as a bidentate ligand for organometallic complexes. The oxathiane ring adopts the expected chair(More)
To develop a structure-spectroscopic property relationship in platinum acetylides having poly(aromatic hydrocarbon) ligands, we synthesized a series of chromophores with systematic variation in the number of fused aromatic rings (nFAR) and ligand topology (polyacene (L), polyphenanthrene (Z), or compact(C)). We measured ground-state absorption,(More)
