To create a functionalized porous compound, amide group is used in porous framework to produce attractive interactions with guest molecules. To avoid hydrogen-bond formation between these amide groups our strategy was to build a three-dimensional (3D) coordination network using a tridentate amide ligand as the three-connector part. From Cd(NO3)2.4H2O and a(More)
A novel three-dimensional coordination polymer with a mixed-valence localized copper(I,II) dimeric unit, [Cu2(4-pya)3]n (4-pya = 4-pyridinecarboxylate), was hydrothermally synthesized via a simultaneous in-situa redox and hydrolysis reaction of Cu(II) and 4-cyanopyridine and crystallographically characterized to be a twofold interpenetrated(More)
The treatment of Cr(III)(X(4)SQ)(3) (SQ = o-semiquinonate; X = Cl and Br) with acetonitrile affords trans-Cr(III)(X(4)SQ)(X(4)Cat)(CH(3)CN)(2) (X = Cl (1) and Br (2)). In the presence of 2,2'-bipyridine (bpy) or 3,4,7,8-tetramethyl-1,10-phenanthrene (tmphen), the reaction affords Cr(III)(X(4)SQ)(X(4)Cat)(bpy).nCH(3)CN (X = Cl, n = 1 (3); X = Br, n = 0.5(More)
Chemical oxidation of [Ru2(6+)(3,6-DTBCat)4]2- affords [n-Bu4N][Ru2(3,6-DTBDiox)4].acetone (2.acetone). The oxidized species was characterized by X-ray crystallographic analysis and EPR, and the delocalization of the unpaired electron over the entire molecule was indicated. This example showed that the utilization of redox-active ligands into a Ru2 complex(More)
Metal-metal bonded Ru(3+)(mu-OR)(2)Ru(3+) and Ru(3.5+)(mu-OR)(2)Ru(3.5+) (R = CH(3) and CH(3)CH(2)) compounds with tetrachlorocatecholate (Cl(4)Cat) have been synthesized in the corresponding alcohol, MeOH and EtOH, from a nonbridged Ru(2+)-Ru(3+) compound, Na(3)[Ru(2)(Cl(4)Cat)(4)(THF)].3H(2)O.7THF (1). In alcohol solvents, compound 1 is continuously(More)
A Ru complex-incorporated Ti-based MOF (Ti-MOF-Ru(tpy)2) has been synthesised by using a bis(4'-(4-carboxyphenyl)-terpyridine)Ru(ii) complex (Ru(tpy)2) as an organic linker. Ti-MOF-Ru(tpy)2 promotes photocatalytic hydrogen production from water containing a sacrificial electron donor under visible-light irradiation up to 620 nm.
A family of diruthenium complexes with ligand-unsupported Ru-Ru bonds has been systematically synthesized, and their crystal structures and physical properties have been examined. A simple, useful reaction between Ru2(OAc)4Cl (OAc- = acetate) and catechol derivatives in the presence of bases afforded a variety of diruthenium complexes, generally formulated(More)
The molecular structures and physicochemical properties of diruthenium complexes with ligand-unsupported Ru-Ru bonds, generally formulated as [A2{Ru2(DTBCat)4}] (DTB = 3,5- or 3,6-di-tert-butyl; Cat(2-) = catecholate), were studied in detail by changing the countercations. First, the binding structures of the cations in a family of(More)
