A polymer complex (1P) was synthesized by binding bis(cyclometalated) Ir(ppy)2(+) fragments (ppy = 2-phenylpyridyl) to phenanthroline (phen) pendants of a poly(amidoamine) copolymer (PhenISA, in which the phen pendants involved ∼6% of the repeating units). The corresponding molecular complex [Ir(ppy)2(bap)](+) (1M, bap =(More)
The previously known anion [(C6F5)3B(mu-OH)B(C6F5)3]- (2) has been prepared by a two-step procedure, involving deprotonation of (C6F5)3BOH2 to give [B(C6F5)3OH]- (1), followed by addition of B(C6F5)3. The solution structure and the dynamics of 2 have been investigated by 1H and 19F NMR spectroscopy. The reaction of [NHEt3]2 with NEt3 resulted in the(More)
Three-component nanocomposites, constituted by a superparamagnetic iron oxide core coated with a polymeric surfactant bearing tightly bound Re(CO)3 moieties, were prepared and fully characterized. The water soluble and biocompatible surfactant was a linear poly(amidoamine) copolymer (PAA), containing cysteamine pendants in the minority part (ISA23SH), able(More)
New luminescent dinuclear rhenium(I) tricarbonyl complex-PNA conjugates have been synthesized through a reliable solid-phase synthetic methodology. Their photophysical properties have been measured. The most luminescent Re-PNA conjugate 7 showed interesting two-photon absorption (TPA) properties, that were exploited for imaging experiments, to demonstrate(More)
The photophysical and electroluminescence properties of two dinuclear rhenium(I) carbonyl complexes bearing 1,2-diazines are comprehensively investigated. The bromo-bridged complex is successfully used as triplet emitter for the preparation of vacuum-processed OLEDs with outstanding external quantum efficiencies, reaching a value of 10%.
The novel [Re2(μ-H)(μ-OOC-CPDT)(CO)6(μ-3-Me-pydz)] complex (1; OOC-CPDT = 4H-cyclopenta[2,1-b:3,4-b']dithiophene-4-carboxylate, 3-Me-pydz = 3-methylpyridazine) has been prepared and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, density functional theory (DFT), and time-dependent DFT computations, UV-vis absorption and emission spectroscopy, and cyclic(More)
A new amphoteric copolymer, PhenISA, has been obtained by copolymerization of 4-(4'-aminobutyl)-1,10-phenanthroline (BAP) with 2-methylpiperazine and bis(acrylamido)acetic acid (BAC) (6% of phenanthroline-containing repeating units). The copolymer showed excellent solubility in water, where it self-aggregated to give clear nanoparticle suspensions(More)
We describe a new class of water soluble metallosurfactant molecules based on luminescent neutral iridium(III) complexes. The compounds possess an alkyl chain terminated with a negatively charged group, a sulphate. Due to their amphiphilic nature they assemble in aggregates in water and their photophysical properties, as well as the morphological(More)
The quantitative addition of pyrazole (Hpz) to the 44 valence-electron, triangular cluster anion [Re3(mu 3-H)-(mu-H)3(CO)9]- gives the novel unsaturated anion [Re3(mu-H)4(CO)9(Hpz)]- (1, 46 valence electrons), which contains a pyrazole molecule that is terminally coordinated on a cluster vertex. Solidstate X-ray and IR analyses reveal a rather weak(More)
The interaction of fluorinated alcohols with the anionic hydrido complex [HRe2(CO)9]- (1) has been investigated by NMR spectroscopy. According to the acidic strength of the alcohols, the interaction may result not only in the formation of dihydrogen-bonded ROH...[HRe2(CO)9]- adducts 2, but also in proton transfer to give the neutral species [H2Re2(CO)9](More)
