A four-coordinate cobalt(II) single-ion magnet with coercivity and a very high energy barrier
Single-molecule magnets display magnetic bistability of molecular origin, which may one day be exploited in magnetic data storage devices. Recently it was realised that increasing the magnetic momentExpand
Sensing external spins with nitrogen-vacancy diamond
A single nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center is used to sense individual, as well as small ensembles of, electron spins placed outside the diamond lattice. Applying double electron–electron resonanceExpand
Separating innocence and non-innocence of ligands and metals in complexes [(L)Ru(acac)2](n) (n = -1, 0, +1; L = o-iminoquinone or o-iminothioquinone).
The diamagnetic title complexes were obtained from Ru(acac)(2)(CH(3)CN)(2) and 2-aminophenol or 2-aminothiophenol. X-ray structure analysis of (L(1))Ru(acac)(2) (L(1) = o-iminoquinone) revealed C-CExpand
Selective Catalytic Oxidation of CH Bonds with Molecular Oxygen
Although catalytic reductions, cross‐couplings, metathesis, and oxidation of CC double bonds are well established, the corresponding catalytic hydroxylations of CH bonds in alkanes, arenes, orExpand
Expanding the scope of ‘Click’ derived 1,2,3-triazole ligands: New palladium and platinum complexes
Abstract Using the ‘Click Protocol’ the new ligands 1-(cyclohexyl)-4-(2-pyridyl)-1,2,3-triazole (1), 1-(2-trifluoromethyl phenyl)-4-(2-pyridyl)-1,2,3-triazole (2), 1-(4-hexylExpand
Are Cu(I)-mesoionic NHC carbenes associated with nitrogen additives the best Cu-carbene catalysts for the azide–alkyne click reaction in solution? A case study
Copper(I)-catalyzed azide alkyne cycloaddition is now a widely used tool for the synthesis of elaborated compounds. Until now, few stable and efficient copper(I) catalysts are available despite theExpand
Ru(II), Os(II), and Ir(III) complexes with chelating pyridyl-mesoionic carbene ligands: structural characterization and applications in transfer hydrogenation catalysis.
Chelating ligands with one pyridine donor and one mesoionic carbene donor are fast establishing themselves as privileged ligands in homogeneous catalysis. The synthesis of several new Ir(III)-Cp*-Expand
Ruthenium Complexes with Strongly Electron-Donating Terpyridine Ligands: Effect of the Working Electrode on Electrochemical and Spectroelectrochemical Properties.
The combination of 2,2':6',2''-terpyridines (tpy) and RuII is known to deliver molecular and supramolecular assemblies with remarkable properties. Here new RuII complexes, with modified tpy ligandsExpand
Diaminodicyanoquinones: Fluorescent Dyes with High Dipole Moments and Electron-Acceptor Properties.
Fluorescent dyes are applied in various fields of research, including solar cells and light-emitting devices, and as reporters for assays and bioimaging studies. Fluorescent dyes with an added highExpand
Redox Induced Oxidative C-C Bond Cleavage of 2,2'-Pyridil in Diruthenium Complexes.
In the recent years there has been an emerging research interest in the domain of C-C bond cleavage reactions. The present contribution deals with the redox mediated dioxygen activation and C-C bondExpand
