Positron emission tomography (PET) is a powerful technique for imaging biological pathways in vivo, particularly those that are key targets in disease processes. In contrast, fluorescence imaging has demonstrated to be a superior method for image-guided surgery, such as tumor removal. Although the integration of PET and optical imaging could provide an… (More)
The phosphonium borane [p-Mes(2)B(C(6)H(4))PMePh(2)](+) complexes fluoride in water containing 10% methanol with a binding constant of 1.0(+/-0.1) x 10(3) M(-1) to afford the zwitterion p-Mes(2)FB(C(6)H(4))PMePh(2).
The reaction of [Li(THF)(4)][1,8-mu-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)] with HgCl(2) affords [1,1'-(Hg)-[8-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)](2)] () or [1-(ClHg)-8-(Mes(2)B)C(10)H(6)] (), depending on the stoichiometry of the reagents. These two new compounds have been characterized by (1)H, (13)C, (11)B and (199)Hg NMR, elemental analysis and X-ray crystallography. The cyclic… (More)
Both pentafluorophenylmercury chloride and trimeric perfluoro-ortho-phenylene mercury interact with phenanthrene to form phosphorescent adducts which exhibit extended binary stacks in the solid state.
