As part of our interest into the bioinorganic chemistry of gallium, gallium(III) complexes of the peptide ligand N-(2-(4-imidazolyl)ethyl)pyridine-2-carboxamide (pypepH2) resembling a fragment of the metal-binding domain of bleomycins (BLMs), have been isolated. Reaction of pypepH2 with (Et4N)[GaCl4] and Ga(acac)3 [acac- is the acetylacetonate(-1) ion](More)
The use of N-salicylidene-o-aminophenol (H2saph) in 4f-metal chemistry has led to the isolation of seven new isostructural lanthanide(iii) [Ln(III)] complexes. More specifically the Ln(NO3)3·xH2O/H2saph/Et3N (1 : 1 : 1) reaction mixtures in DMF/MeCN gave complexes [Ln2(NO3)2(saph)2(DMF)4] (Ln = Sm (); Eu (); Gd (); Tb (); Dy (); Ho (); Er ()) in good yields(More)
As part of our interest into the bioinorganic chemistry of gallium, gallium(III) complexes of the azole ligands 2,1,3-benzothiadiazole (btd), 1,2,3-benzotriazole (btaH), and 1-methyl-4,5-diphenylimidazole (L) have been isolated. Reaction of btaH or btd with GaBr(3) or GaCl(3) resulted in the mononuclear complexes [GaBr(3)(btaH)(2)] (1) and [GaCl(3)(btd)(2)](More)
† This article is dedicated to Dante Gatteschi, a pioneer in the interdisciplinary field of Molecular Magnetism and a great mentor, on the occasion of his 70th birthday. Abstract: The 1:1 reactions between hydrated lanthanide(III) nitrates and triethanolamine (teaH 3) in MeOH, in the absence of external bases, have provided access to the dinuclear complexes(More)
The reactions of methyl(2-pyridyl)ketone oxime, (py)C(Me)NOH, with manganese(II) sulfate monohydrate have been investigated. The reaction between equimolar quantities of MnSO(4) . H(2)O and (py)C(Me)NOH in H(2)O lead to the dinuclear complex [Mn(2)(SO(4))(2){(py)C(Me)NOH}(4)] . (py)C(Me)NOH, 1 . (py)C(Me)NOH, while employment of NaOMe as base affords the(More)
N,N'-diethylurea (DEU) was employed as a ligand to form the octahedral complexes [M(DEU)(6)](2+) (M=Co, Ni and Zn). Compounds [Co(DEU)(6)](BF(4))(2) (1), [Co(DEU)(6)](CIO(4))(2) (2), [Ni(DEU)(6)](CIO(4))(2) (3), and [Zn(DMU)(6)](CIO(4))(2) (4) have been prepared from the reactions of DEU and the appropriate hydrated metal(II) salts in EtOH in the presence(More)
The synthesis of the M[(OPPh(2))(SePPh(2))N](2), M = Co (1), Ni (2) complexes was accomplished by metathetical reactions between the corresponding M(II) salts and the deprotonated form of the dichalcogenated imidodiphosphinato ligand [(OPPh(2))(SePPh(2))N](-). X-Ray crystallography revealed a pseudo-tetrahedral MO(2)Se(2) coordination sphere, owing to the(More)
The reactions of di-2-pyridyl ketone with Cu(O2CPh)2 in the presence of NaN3 and LiOH have led to an antiferromagnetically coupled (S = 0) Cu(II)6 cluster with a novel core and to (Cu(II)8)n and (Cu(II)2)n coordination polymers (the former 1D and the latter 2D) with interesting structures. The cluster or polymer formation depends on the reaction solvent.
