We present a parametrization of a self-consistent charge density functional-based tight-binding scheme (SCC-DFTB) to describe gold-organic hybrid systems by adding new Au-X (X = Au, H, C, S, N, O) parameters to a previous set designed for organic molecules. With the aim of describing gold-thiolates systems within the DFTB framework, the resulting parameters(More)
Molecular systems encompassing more than one photochromic entity can be used to build highly functional materials, thanks to their potential multi-addressability and/or multi-response properties. Over the last decade, the synthesis and spectroscopic and kinetic characterisation as well as the modeling of a wide range of multiphotochromes have been achieved(More)
Electroactive fused ethylenedithio-tetrathiafulvalene-[4]helicene and -[6]helicenes have been synthesized through a strategy that involved the preparation of 2,3-dibromo-helicene derivatives as intermediates. The dihedral angles between the terminal helicenes, as determined by single-crystal X-ray analysis, are 22.7° and 50.7° for the [4]helicene and(More)
With the help of a computational scheme combining molecular dynamics, DFT and TD-DFT methods, the conformational, electronic and optical properties of a new class of hybrid compounds where a photochromic molecule belonging to the dithienylethene family (DTE) is covalently linked to a Au25 nanocluster (gold nanocluster or GNC) are investigated. We compare(More)
The aim of this technical note is to show that ketamine hydrochloride anesthesia, owing to the preservation of muscle tone, enables one to safely and comfortably carry out gaseous encephalography on a simple radiological table in the toddler or child. However the authors very strictly select the indications for this investigation. Whenever the child's(More)
The electroactive ligands (2,4-bis-tetrathiafulvalene[6-(dipyridin-2'-ylamino)]-1,3,5-triazine) TTF(2)-tz-dpa (1) and (2-tetrathiafulvalene[4,6-bis-(dipyridin-2'-ylamino)]-1,3,5-triazine) TTF-tz-dpa(2) (2) have been synthesized by palladium cross-coupling catalysis, and the single crystal X-ray structure for 1 was determined. In the solid state the TTF and(More)
Dithienylethenes (DTEs) can be assembled to form supramolecular multiphotochromic systems that are highly functional molecular architectures of potential interest for building complex optoelectronic devices. Yet even simple DTE dimers relying on an organic linker may suffer from a partial photoactivity, i.e., only one of the two switches does isomerise.(More)
We prepared a series of four new diketopyrrolopyrroles (DPPs)-based sensitizers that exhibit high-molar extinction coefficients, extended absorption into the long wavelengths, and well-suited photoredox properties to act as sensitizers in p-type dye-sensitized solar cells (p-DSSCs). These new DPP dyes, composed of a thienyl DPP core, are substituted on one(More)
