Albert Einstein's insight that it is impossible to distinguish a local experiment in a "freely falling elevator" from one in free space led to the development of the theory of general relativity. The wave nature of matter manifests itself in a striking way in Bose-Einstein condensates, where millions of atoms lose their identity and can be described by a(More)
CO2 is fixed in a rare μ2-η bridging mode by bi-layered coordination networks of ZnTCPP tessellated along the four equatorial directions by [Pr2Na3(NO3)(H2O)3](8+) connecting clusters in a 2 : 1 ratio (1), but not in the isomorphous free-base porphyrin analogue [(TCPPH2)2(Pr2Na3(NO3)(H2O)3)]n (2), revealing the crucial role of the zinc metal in this process.
A new route is developed for the synthesis of molybdenum and tungsten porphyrins using [M(NO)(2)py(2)Cl(2)] (M = Mo, W) as the metal source and TPP (dianion of 5,10,15,20-meso-tetraphenylporphyrin) in the benzoic acid melt. Complexes [Mo(V)O(TPP)(OOCPh)] (1) and [W(V)O(TPP)(OOCPh)] (2) are isolated in almost quantitative yield. These are characterized by(More)
This paper highlights an integrated approach to solve the correlated multi-response optimization problem through a case study in submerged arc welding (SAW). The proposed approach has been presented to overcome different limitations and drawbacks of existing optimization techniques available in literature. Traditional Taguchi optimization technique is based(More)
Reaction of [Zn(II)(TTP)] (1) (TTP = dianion of 5,10,15,20-meso-tetrakis(p-tolyl)porphyrin) with 16 equiv of N-bromosuccinamide (NBS) in methanol at reflux led to the unexpected two-sidedd open-ring brominated product [Zn(II)(C26H20N2O2Br5)2] (2). Similar observations have been made with other meso-substituted zinc porphyrins as well [Zn(II)(por)] {por =(More)
Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) is used to study for the first time the reversible binding of imidazole (Im) and nickel(ii) octaethylporphyrin (NiOEP) supported on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) at the phenyloctane/NiOEP/HOPG interface at 25 °C. The ligation of Im to the NiOEP receptor while not observed in fluid solution is readily realized(More)
