Triptycene-Roofed Quinoxaline Cavitands for the Supramolecular Detection of BTEX in Air.
Two novel triptycene quinoxaline cavitands have been designed, synthesized, and applied in the supramolecular detection of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylenes (BTEX) in air.
Iodinated Bis(phthalocyaninato)terbium(III) Complexes: Versatile Platforms for Functionalization of Single-Molecule Magnets through Sonogashira Reaction
Novel homoleptic octaiodinated bis(phthalocyaninato)terbium(III) complex Tb(PcI4)2 (1) and its heteroleptic counterpart tetraiodinated TbPc(PcI4) have been synthesized in their neutral forms and
Magnetic behaviour of TbPc2 single-molecule magnets chemically grafted on silicon surface
By exploiting the surface sensitivity of X-ray circular magnetic dichroism, this work evidence an enhancement of the magnetic bistability of this single-molecule magnet, in contrast to the dramatic reduction of the Magnetic hysteresis that characterises monolayer deposits evaporated on noble and ferromagnetic metals.
Tuning of a Vertical Spin Valve with a Monolayer of Single Molecule Magnets
The synthesis and the chemisorption from solution of a terbium bis‐phthalocyaninato complex suitable for the functionalization of lanthanum strontium manganite (LSMO) are reported. Two phosphonate
An electrochemiluminescence-supramolecular approach to sarcosine detection for early diagnosis of prostate cancer.
An innovative approach for the selective and sensitive detection of the PCa biomarker sarcosine is described, obtained by a synergistic ECL-supramolecular approach, in which the free base form of sarcOSine acts as co-reagent in a Ru(bpy)3(2+)-ECL process.
Functionalization of PEGylated Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles with tetraphosphonate cavitand for biomedical application.
PEG and Tiiii functionalized MNPs have been able to load N-methyl ammonium salts such as the antitumor drug procarbazine hydrochloride and the neurotransmitter epinephrine hydrochlorides and release them as free bases, thus allowing their use in biological environments.
Hierarchical Route for the Fabrication of Cavitand-Modified Nanostructured ZnO Fibers for Volatile Organic Compound Detection
A hierarchical hybrid inorganic–organic system suited for the recognition of aromatic volatile organic compounds on brushlike ZnO fibers was synthetized. The hybrid material was obtained by a
Multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles for enhanced intracellular drug transport.
Combined confocal microscopy and cytotoxicity experiments showed that these multi-functional MNPs are able to recognize a specific drug "in situ" and promote its cellular internalization, thus enhancing its efficiency.
Self-Assembly of TbPc2 Single-Molecule Magnets on Surface through Multiple Hydrogen Bonding.
The complexation between 2-ureido-4[1H]-pyrimidinone (UPy) and 2,7-diamido-1,8-naphthyridine (NaPy) is used to promote the mild chemisorption of a UPy-functionalized terbium(III) double decker system
In situ metalation of free base phthalocyanine covalently bonded to silicon surfaces
XPS results revealed that the different surface–phthalocyanine interactions observed for flat and porous substrates affect the efficiency of the in situ metalation process.
