An effective solvothermal procedure has been developed to synthesize the new three-dimensional metal-organic framework, [ZnF(AmTAZ)].solvents, using either 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (AmTAZ) or 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole-5-carboxylic acid (AmTAZAc) and a choice of several Zn(II) salts as starting materials. The three-dimensional structure displays open-ended,(More)
A large bis-urea macrocycle was synthesized and assembled into columnar nanotubes containing a sizable cavity. This purely organic nanotube is held together primarily by hydrogen bonding and yet shows remarkable thermal stability up to 180 degrees C in the presence and absence of acetic acid guest. This enables the nanotube to be used as reusable organic(More)
Three angular ditopic ligands (1,3-bis(benzimidazol-1-ylmethyl)-4,6-dimethylbenzene L(1), 1,3-bis(benzimidazol-1-ylmethyl)-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene L(2), and 1,4-bis(benzimidazol-1-ylmethyl)-2,3,5,6-tetramethylbenzene L(3)) and one tripodal ligand 1,3,5-tris(benzimidazol-1-ylmethyl)-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene L(4) have been prepared. Reaction of these(More)
We report a simple process to generate iron oxide coated gold nanorods. Gold nanorods, synthesized by our three-step seed mediated protocol, were coated with a layer of polymer, poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate). The negatively charged polymer on the nanorod surface electrostatically attracted a mixture of aqueous iron(II) and iron(III) ions. Base-mediated(More)
The long, rigid ligands 1,4-bis[(3-pyridyl)ethynyl]benzene (L1) and 1,4-bis[(4-pyridyl)ethynyl]benzene (L2) were used in the synthesis of 10 new organic-inorganic coordination frameworks, each of them adopting different structural motifs. Synthesis, single-crystal X-ray structure determination, and spectroscopic and thermogravimetric analyses are presented.(More)
We characterize experimentally and theoretically the promising new solid oxide fuel cell electrode material Sr(2)Fe(1.5)Mo(0.5)O(6-δ) (SFMO). Rietveld refinement of powder neutron diffraction data has determined that the crystal structure of this material is distorted from the ideal cubic simple perovskite, instead belonging to the orthorhombic space group(More)
The two flexible multidentate ligands 1,3-bis(8-thioquinolyl)propane (C3TQ) and 1,4-bis(8-thioquinolyl)butane (C4TQ) were reacted with AgX (X = CF(3)SO(3)(-) or ClO(4)(-)) to give four new complexes: ([Ag(C3TQ)](ClO(4)))(n)() 1, ([Ag(C3TQ)](CF(3)SO(3)))(n)() 2, ([Ag(2)(C4TQ)(CF(3)SO(3))(CH(3)CN)](CF(3)SO(3)))(n)() 3, and ([Ag(C4TQ)](ClO(4)))(n)() 4.

In this paper we report the crystal growth, structure determination, and magnetic properties of the 2H-perovskite related oxides, Sr(5)Co(4)O(12) and Sr(6)Co(5)O(15), as well as the charge disproportionation and associated phase transition of Sr(5)Co(4)O(12). Sr(5)Co(4)O(12) and Sr(6)Co(5)O(15) are the (m = 2, n = 3) and (m = 1, n = 1) members of the(More)
