Homoleptic organocobalt(III) compounds with formula [NBu4][Co(III)(C6X5)4] [X = F (3), Cl (4)] were obtained in reasonable yields by chemical oxidation of the corresponding divalent species [NBu4]2[Co(II)(C6X5)4] [X = F (1), Cl (2)]. The [Co(III)(C6X5)4](-)/[Co(II)(C6X5)4](2-) couples are electrochemically related by quasi-reversible, one-electron exchange(More)
The intrinsic diamagnetic response of YBa2Cu307_~ presintered powders obtained by the citrate pyrolysis method has been studied. The techniques applied were: a.c. susceptibility at zero d.c. field, low field d.c, susceptibility, isothermal magnetization and a.c. susceptibility at varying bias fields up to 5 T. To investigate intragrain links, powders of(More)
A new polydentate bridging ligand, NH(4)C(5)N=NC(6)H(4)N(H)C(5)H(4)N (HL(2)), is synthesized by the cobalt-mediated phenyl ring amination of coordinated NH(4)C(5)N=NC(6)H(5). The green cobalt complex intermediate [Co(L(2))(2)](ClO(4)), [1](ClO(4)), and the free ligand HL(2) were isolated and characterized. The X-ray structure of [H(2)L(2)](ClO(4)) is(More)
Homoleptic perhalophenyl derivatives of divalent nickel complexes with the general formula [NBu(4)](2)[Ni(II)(C(6)X(5))(4)] [X=F (1), Cl (2)] have been prepared by low-temperature treatment of the halo-complex precursor [NBu(4)](2)[NiBr(4)] with the corresponding organolithium reagent LiC(6)X(5). Compounds 1 and 2 are electrochemically related by reversible(More)
The mononuclear, five-coordinate organochromium(V) compound [NBu(4)][CrO(C(6)F(5))(4)] (1) has been obtained as a dark red solid in moderate yield by treatment of the homoleptic organochromium(III) derivative [NBu(4)](2)[Cr(C(6)F(5))(5)] with NO[BF(4)] in CH(2)Cl(2) solution under an oxygen atmosphere. The Cr(V) centre in the [CrO(C(6)F(5))(4)](-) anion(More)
A sample holder for high temperature (300 K<T<800 K) measurements in superconducting quantum interference device magnetometers is presented. It is fabricated using aluminum foil and it is appropriate for samples in either solid or powder form. The holder is homogeneous for the gradiometer coil, and this results in a contribution to the background signal(More)
