An efficient photocatalytic two-electron reduction and protonation of nicotine amide adenine dinucleotide (NAD(+)), as well as the synthetic nucleotide co-factor analogue N-benzyl-3-carbamoyl-pyridinium (BNAD(+)), powered by photons in the long-wavelength region of visible light (λirr > 610 nm), is demonstrated for the first time. This functional artificial(More)
The reaction of 2,3,5,6-tetracyanopyridine (TCNPy) with V(CO)6 in CH2 Cl2 forms new organic-based magnets of V[TCNPy]x ⋅z (CH2 Cl2 ) (x=2, 3) composition. Analysis of the IR spectra suggests that the TCNPy is reduced and coordinated to V(II) sites through the nitriles. V[TCNPy]x order as ferrimagnets with 111 and 90 K Tc values for V[TCNPy]2 and V[TCNPy]3 ,(More)
The heteroaromatic polynitrile compound tetracyanopyridine (TCNPy) is introduced as a new electron acceptor for the formation of deeply colored charge-transfer complexes. In MeCN, TCNPy is characterized by a quasireversible one-electron-reduction process at -0.51 V (versus SCE). The tetracyanopyridine radical anion undergoes a secondary chemical reaction,(More)
Halide ions (X(-)) as cheap and abundant electron donors are oxidized with simulated sunlight in a photocatalytic reaction based on robust antimony porphyrins acting as red-light harvesting multielectron transfer sensitizers. Besides halogen formation (X2/X3(-)) this solar energy storing process under certain conditions also accumulates hydrogen peroxide(More)
