A series of mono-, di-, and tetranuclear homo/heterometallic complexes of Ru(II) and Os(II) based on the bridging ligand dppz(11-11')dppz (where dppz = dipyrido[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine) (BL) have been synthesized and characterized. This bridging ligand is a long rigid rod with only one rotational degree of freedom and provides complete conjugation between(More)
The structural modifications and the Bronsted acid sites generated during the acid treatment of montmorillonite clay with varied concentration of sulphuric acid was determined using FT-IR spectroscopy. Octahedral sheet is affected at low acid concentration resulting into the dissolution of cations; among them Mg2+ cations are prone to dissolve than Fe2+/3+(More)
Synthesis of nano-crystalline zirconia aerogel was done by sol-gel technique and supercritical drying using n-propanol solvent at and above supercritical temperature (235-280 degrees C) and pressure (48-52 bar) of n-propanol. Zirconia xerogel samples have also been prepared by conventional thermal drying method to compare with the super critically dried(More)
The reaction of cis-[M(bpy)2Cl2] (M = Ru(II), and Os(II) with 2,4,6-tris(2-pyridyl)-1,3,5-triazine (tptz) in refluxing ethanol-water resulted in the formation of dinuclear complexes of the composition [(M(bpy)2)2(tptz-OH)](PF6)3.nH2O (n = 1 for Ru and n = 0 for Os). In this reaction an unusual metal-induced hydroxylation at the carbon atom of the triazine(More)
