BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Frontolimbic circuits are involved in learning and decision-making processes thought to be affected in substance-dependent individuals. We investigated frontolimbic cortical morphometry in substance-dependent men and women and determined whether morphometric measurements correlated with decision-making performance. MATERIALS AND(More)
Polymetallic, highly organized molecular architectures can be created by "bottom-up" self-assembly methods using ligands with appropriately programmed coordination information. Ligands based on 2,6-picolyldihydrazone (tritopic and pentatopic) and 3,6-pyridazinedihydrazone (tetratopic) cores, with tridentate coordination pockets, are highly specific and lead(More)
Reaction of N-alkylated pyridine-bridged bisdithiazolylium cations [1]+ (R1 =Me, Et; R2 =Ph) with selenium dioxide in acetic acid provides a one-step high-yield synthetic route to bisthiaselenazolylium cations [2]+ (R1 = Me, Et; R2 = Ph). The corresponding radicals 1 and 2 can be prepared by chemical or electrochemical reduction of the cations. Structural(More)
The X-ray crystal structure and magnetic properties of a molecular crystal consisting of 1,5-dimethyl-3-(2-pyridyl)-6-oxoverdazyl radical and hydroquinone (pyvd:hq) are presented. The structure contains a two-dimensional network of hydrogen bonds involving the hydroquinones and the pyridine ring of the pyvd radical. The radicals adopt an unusual(More)
The complex [(PAH)(4)Cu(II)(4)Cu(I)(2)Br(10)] (1) (PAH = picolinamide hydrazone) containing a Cu(II)(4)Cu(I)(2) hexanuclear cluster, with two well-separated Cu(II)(2) dinuclear centers, results from a redox reaction involving a hydrolytically unstable ligand, salicilyl picolinamide hydrazone, and CuBr(2) in aqueous acetonitrile. The Cu(II) centers are(More)
The scanning tunnelling microscopy imaging of [3 x 3] Mn(II) nonanuclear grids on gold substrates is described. Self-assembled behaviour is observed at both high and low coverage, with submolecular resolution of individual molecules displayed at low deposition concentrations. The importance of proper image processing techniques is demonstrated in resolving(More)
Reaction of Cl3CN and F5C2CN with a 1:1 mixture of S4(AsF6)2 and S8(AsF6)2 affords the paramagnetic solids Cl3CNSSSAsF6 (1CCl3AsF6) and F5C2CNSSSAsF6 (1C2F5AsF6). Isotropic electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of 1CCl3AsF6 and 1C2F5AsF6 in SO2 consist of a single line with g = 2.01675 and 2.01580, respectively. The structure of 1CCl3AsF6 contains chains(More)
Reactions between the potentially pentadentate (N(2)O(3)), trianionic double Schiff-base ligand 2,6-bis[[(2-hydroxyethyl)imino]methyl]-4-methylphenol (H(3)L) and Cu(CH(3)CO(2))(2) or Cu(ClO(4))(2), in the presence of NaN(3), give novel coordination polymers with chain {[Cu(2)(H(2)L)(N(3))(3)](2).H(2)O}(n) (1) or sheet [Cu(2)(H(2)L)(N(3))(3)](n) (2) and(More)
