In time-resolved laser pump, X-ray probe wide-angle X-ray scattering experiments on systems in solution the structural response of the system is accompanied by a solvent response. The solvent response is caused by reorganization of the bulk solvent following the laser pump event, and in order to extract the structural information of the solute, the solvent(More)
Molecular movies: Time-resolved X-ray scattering provides direct structural information on an electronically excited complex while it is formed in the bimolecular reaction between excited octahydrogen[tetrakis-mu-diphosphito-1kappaP:2kappaP'-diplatinate](4-) (PtPOP*) and thallium ions. In the exciplex one thallium(I) and two platinum(II) ions are found to(More)
We report the magnetic-field amplitude and field-angle dependence of the superconducting onset temperature Tconset of the organic superconductor (TMTSF)2ClO4 in magnetic fields H accurately aligned to the conductive ab' plane. We revealed that the rapid increase of the onset fields at low temperatures occurs both for H || b' and H || a, irrespective of the(More)
The interaction of OH-containing compounds with calcite, CaCO(3), such as is required for the processes that control biomineralization, has been investigated in a low-water solution. We used ethanol (EtOH) as a simple, model, OH-containing organic compound, and observed the strength of its adsorption on calcite relative to OH from water and the consequences(More)
In continuation of previous studies showing promising metal-molecule contact properties a variety of C(60) end-capped "molecular wires" for molecular electronics were prepared by variants of the Prato 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction. Either benzene or fluorene was chosen as the central wire, and synthetic protocols for derivatives terminated with one or(More)
Unusually high electron transfer rates in Aspergillus niger glucose oxidase catalyzed oxidation of glucose using 5,6:11,12-Bis(dithio)tetracene (TTT), 1,2-dimethyltetraselenafulvalene (DMTSF) and tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) were observed. At pH 7.0 oxidation rate constants (TN/Km) in the range from 1.0.10(7) to 8.7.10(7) M.s-1 were deduced from experimental(More)
2014 Needle axis resistivity measurements on several TMTTF (tetramethyltetrathiafulvalene) salts of the form (TMTTF)2X, with X = Br, ClO4, PF6, are presented for pressures up to 32 kbar. The pressure-temperature phase diagrams of all three materials are similar with the stabilization under pressure of a metallic state to low temperatures (~ 20 K), below(More)
We report on the synthesis and characterization of fluorescent halogen substituted anthracene-bridge-aniline (ABA) supermolecules that undergo structural reorganization on photoexcitation to form transient complexes. The syntheses were achieved in high yields on a large scale and the molecular structures were confirmed by single crystal X-ray diffraction.(More)
3,8-Diaryldifurano[2,3-a:2',3'-f]naphthalenes were prepared in two simple steps. First, 1,5-dihydroxynaphthalene and 1-aryl-2-bromodecan-1-ones were condensed to the corresponding naphthalene 1,5-diethers. Second, these intermediates were cyclized using methanesulfonic acid in methylene chloride. Seven examples are given, three of which are doubly(More)
