Bis(trimethylsilyl)amide-ligated iron-sulfur cubane clusters [Fe(4)(mu(3)-S)(4)(N{SiMe(3)}(2))(4)](z) (z = 0, 1-, 2-) are accessible by the reaction of FeCl(N{SiMe(3)}(2))(2)(THF) (1) with 1 equiv of NaSH (z = 0), followed by reduction with either 0.25 (z = 1-) or 1 equiv (z = 2-) of Na(2)S as needed. The anionic clusters are obtained as the sodium salts(More)
Antibiotic nonproducing variants of Streptomyces lasaliensis NRRL 3382R, which makes the polyether antibiotic lasalocid A (Las) and the quinoxaline antibiotic echinomycin (Ech), arose at a frequency of 3-11% after treatment with three different mutagens or regeneration of protoplasts compared with a spontaneous frequency of less than 0.1%. Cosynthesis of(More)
Since 2002, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been funding research on the environmental aspects of nanotechnology through its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grants program. In total, more than $25 million has been awarded for 86 research projects on the environmental applications and implications of nanotechnology. In the applications(More)
The protolysis of mononuclear ferric amide precursors FeCl[N(SiMe3)2]2(THF) (1) or [FeCl2{N(SiMe3)2}2]- (2) by primary amines provides, under suitable conditions, an effective route to dinuclear weak-field ferric-imide clusters with [Fe2(mu-NR)2]2+ cores. In the synthesis of known arylimide clusters [Fe2(mu-NAr)2Cl4]2- (Ar = Ph, p-Tol, Mes) from 2, the(More)
The dinuclear precursors Fe(2)(N(t)Bu)(2)Cl(2)(NH(2)(t)Bu)(2), [Fe(2)(N(t)Bu)(S)Cl(4)](2-), and Fe(2)(NH(t)Bu)(2)(S)(N{SiMe(3)}(2))(2) allowed the selective syntheses of the cubane clusters [Fe(4)(N(t)Bu)(n)(S)(4-n)Cl(4)](z) with [n, z] = [3, 1-], [2, 2-], [1, 2-]. Weak-field iron-sulfur clusters with heteroleptic, nitrogen-containing cores are of interest(More)
Heteroligated cluster cores consisting of weak-field iron, strongly basic nitrogen anions, and sulfide are of interest with respect to observed and conjectured environments in the FeMo cofactor of nitrogenase. Selective syntheses have been developed to achieve such environments with tert-butyl-substituted amide and imide core ligands. A number of different(More)
Tetrahedral FeCl[N(SiMe(3))(2)](2)(THF) (2), prepared from FeCl(3) and 2 equiv of Na[N(SiMe(3))(2)] in THF, is a useful ferric starting material for the synthesis of weak-field iron-imide (Fe-NR) clusters. Protonolysis of 2 with aniline yields azobenzene and [Fe(2)(mu-Cl)(3)(THF)(6)](2)[Fe(3)(mu-NPh)(4)Cl(4)] (3), a salt composed of two diferrous(More)
