Amorphous SiHfBCN ceramics were prepared from a commercial polysilazane (HTT 1800, AZ-EM), which was modified upon reactions with Hf(NEt2)4 and BH3·SMe2, and subsequently cross-linked and pyrolyzed. The prepared materials were investigated with respect to their chemical and phase composition, by means of spectroscopy techniques (Fourier transform infrared(More)
In the last fifteen years several novel porous silica materials, which are periodically structured on the mesoscopic length scale, have been synthesized. They are of broad interest for fundamental studies of surface-substrate interactions, for studies of the dynamics of guest molecules in confinement and for studies of the effect of confinement on the(More)
Para-hydrogen induced polarization (PHIP) NMR in solution, combined with solid-state NMR, can be efficiently employed for the highly sensitive in-situ detection of the leaching properties of immobilized catalysts. The knowledge of this property is important for possible applications of PHIP experiments in medicine, biology or industry, where leached(More)
A program for iterative fitting procedures to determine the NMR parameters from (51)V solid-state MAS NMR spectra was developed. It contains options to use genetic algorithms and downhill-simplex optimizing procedures to extract the optimal parameter sets, which describe our spectra. As computational kernel the SIMPSON program is employed. Other kernels(More)
Para hydrogen induced polarization (PHIP) is a powerful hyperpolarization technique, which increases the NMR sensitivity by several orders of magnitude. However the hyperpolarized signal is created as an anti-phase signal, which necessitates high magnetic field homogeneity and spectral resolution in the conventional PHIP schemes. This hampers the(More)
The (2)H solid-state NMR spectra of the transition metal complexes Tp*RuD(THT)(2) (1a), Tp*RuD(D(2))(THT) (1b), Tp*RuD(D(2))(2) (1c), Cp*RuD(3)(PPh(3)) (2) and RuD(2)(eta(2)-D(2))(2)(PCy(3))(2) (3) have been measured in a wide temperature range. These compounds were chosen as potential model systems for hydrogen surface species in Ru-nanoparticles. The(More)
For the first time, the existence of a substrate adduct of a nickel superoxide dismutase (NiSOD) model, based on the first nine residues from the N terminus of the active form of Streptomyces coelicolor NiSOD, has been proven and the adduct has been isolated. This adduct is based on the cyanide anion (CN(-)), as a substrate analogue of the superoxide anion(More)
Heterogeneous dirhodium(II) catalysts based on environmentally benign and biocompatible cellulose nanocrystals (CNC-Rh2) as support material were obtained by ligand exchange between carboxyl groups on the CNC surface and Rh2(OOCCF3)4, as was confirmed by solid-state (19)F and (13)C NMR spectroscopy. On average, two CF3COO(-) groups are replaced during(More)
