A series of new mesomorphic platinum(II) complexes 1-4 bearing pyridyl pyrazolate chelates are reported herein. In this approach, pyridyl azolate ligands have been strategically functionalized with tris(alkoxy)phenyl groups with various alkyl chain lengths. As a result, they are ascribed to a class of luminescent metallomesogens that possess distinctive(More)
A series of new emissive group 11 transition metal d(10)-complexes 1-8 bearing functionalized 2-pyridyl pyrrolide together with phosphine ancillary such as bis[2-(diphenylphosphino)phenyl] ether (POP) or PPh(3) are reported. The titled complexes are categorized into three classes, i.e. Cu(I) complexes (1-3), Ag(I) complexes (4 and 5), and Au(I) metal(More)
The trinuclear complex [(8-QNS)(2)Au(AuPPh(3))(2)].BF(4) (8-QNS = quinoline-8-thiolate), with intramolecular gold(I) distances of 3.0952(4) and 3.0526(3) A, is aggregated to form a novel hexanuclear supermolecule, ([(8-QNS)2(Au(AuPPh3)2])2.(BF4)2, via a close intermolecular gold(I) contact of 3.1135(3) A. The beautiful hexanuclear(More)
Rational design and synthesis of Ir(III) complexes (1-3) bearing two cyclometalated ligands (C--N) and one 2-(diphenylphosphino)phenolate chelate (P--O) as well as the corresponding Ir(III) derivatives (4-6) with only one (C--N) ligand and two P--O chelates are reported, where (C--NH)=phenylpyridine (ppyH), 1-phenylisoquinoline (piqH), and(More)
The title compound 6-amino-3-benzylmercapto-1,2,4-triazolo[3,4-f][1,2,4]-triazin-8(7H)-one (4), molecular formula C(11)H(10)N(6)OS, was obtained by the reaction of 3-amino-2-benzyl-6-hydrazino-1,2,4-triazin-5(2H)-one (3) with carbon disulfide in a water/pyridine mixture. Compound 4 can also be synthesized by reacting(More)
We report herein a new ditopic calix[4]arene receptor 25,27-bis-{[4-amino-4-(1-naphthyl)-2-oxo-3-butenyl]oxy}-26,28-dihydroxycalix[4]arene (2) for the simultaneous complexation of anionic and cationic species. The host molecule 25,27-bis{[3-(1-naphthyl)-5-isoxazolyl]methoxy}-26,28-dihydroxycalix[4]arene (1) was synthesised first and was followed by a(More)
[reaction: see text] Conjugated oligomers with an alternating phenylene-pyrimidine structure have been synthesized by the successive Suzuki coupling reaction starting from 2-bromo-5-iodopyrimidine. The photoluminescence properties and quasi-reversible redox behavior of these oligomers make them applicable as an active material for a light-emitting device.(More)
Two neutral pyrazolato diimine rhenium(I) carbonyl complexes with formula [Re(CO)(3)(N-N)(btpz)] where N-N = 2,2'-bipyridine (1) and 1,10-phenanathroline (2), and btpz = 3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl) pyrazolate, were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, routine spectroscopic methods, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction study. Ground and excited(More)
The syntheses and chromogenic properties of calix[4]arenes, carrying 5,17-bisallyl-11,23-bis(p-X-phenyl)azo 3a-c, 5,11,17-triallyl-23-(p-X-phenyl)azo 4a-c, and 5,17-bis(hydroxypropyl)-11,23-bis(p-X-phenyl)azo groups on the upper rims 5a,b, are described. Unexpectedly, UV/vis spectra of the very popular 4-(4-nitrophenyl)azophenol-coupled calix[4]arenes 3c(More)
