We present a network of sites across Fennoscandia for optical sampling of vegetation properties relevant for phenology monitoring and satellite data calibration. The network currently consists of five sites, distributed along an N-S gradient through Sweden and Finland. Two sites are located in coniferous forests, one in a deciduous forest, and two on(More)
Four isomers with the composition SmC(90) were obtained from carbon soot produced by electric arc vaporization of carbon rods doped with Sm(2)O(3). These were labeled Sm@C(90)(I), Sm@C(90)(II), Sm@C(90)(III), and Sm@C(90)(IV) in order of their elution times during chromatography on a Buckyprep column with toluene as the eluent. Analysis of the structures by(More)
Two isomers of Sm@C(92) and four isomers of Sm@C(94) were isolated from carbon soot obtained by electric arc vaporization of carbon rods doped with Sm(2)O(3). Analysis of the structures by single-crystal X-ray diffraction on cocrystals formed with Ni(II)(octaethylporphyrin) reveals the identities of two of the Sm@C(92) isomers: Sm@C(92)(I), which is the(More)
The structures of two newly synthesized endohedral fullerenes, Tm@C(3v)-C(94) and Ca@C(3v)-C(94), have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction on samples cocrystallized with Ni(II)(octaethylporphyrin). Both compounds exhibit the same cage geometry and conform to the isolated pentagon rule (IPR). The metal ions within these rather large cages are(More)
Titanium dioxide functionalized with Keggin type polyoxometalate (POMs) [X(n+)W(12)O(40)]((8-n)-) (XW(12); X(n+)=P(5+), Si(4+), Ge(4+)) were prepared by sol-gel method. The Keggin structure and dispersion state of POMs were monitored by FT-IR and XRD. The composites showed higher photocatalytic activity than pure TiO(2), pure POMs or mechanical mixture of(More)
An extensive series of soluble dilanthanum endohedral fullerenes that extends from La(2)C(90) to La(2)C(138) has been discovered. The most abundant of these, the nanotubular La(2)@D(5)(450)-C(100), has been isolated in pure form and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
In the complex cation of the title compound, [Mn(C(7)H(5)O(4))(C(12)H(8)N(2))(2)(H(2)O)](C(7)H(5)O(4))·0.5H(2)O, the Mn(II) atom has a six-coordinate octa-hedral environment defined by one carboxyl-ate O atom belonging to a 2,6-dihy-droxy-benzoate (DHB) ligand, four N atoms from two chelating 1,10-phenanthroline mol-ecules and one water mol-ecule.
