The grafting and the postgrafting functionalization of lanthanide ions on commercial amorphous silica have been herein carried out by using as a precursor the terbium N,N-dibutylcarbamato derivative [Tb(O2CNBu2)3]. The reaction of the complex with the surface silanols involved only a fraction of the carbamato ligands. The following protolytic substitution(More)
Some new platinum(II) complexes have been prepared, of general formula trans-[PtCl2(PPh3){NH(Bu)CH2Ar}], where the dimension of the Ar residue in the secondary amines has been varied from small phenyl to large pyrenyl group. The obtained complexes, tested in vitro towards a panel of human tumor cell lines showed an interesting antiproliferative effect on(More)
We describe a new organic/inorganic material emitting circularly polarized luminescence (CPL). The hybrid system was obtained by the following steps: (i) preliminary grafting of the europium N,N-dibutylcarbamate [Eu(O2CNBu2)3] complex onto silica, (ii) substitution of the residual carbamato groups with anionic 1,3-diphenyl-1,3-propanedionato ligands (dbm),(More)
Reactions of perchlorates of iron(II), nickel(II), and zinc(II) with 2,2':6',2'':6'',2'"-quaterpyridine (qtpy) gave the first crystallographically established bis-qtpy metal complexes of formula [M(qtpy)(2)][ClO(4)](2) (M = Fe, Ni, Zn). Coordination of two terdentate quaterpyridines to the same center produces a distorted octahedron of six nitrogen atoms(More)
The syntheses of the complexes [PtCl(2)(NCR)L] [R = Me, Et; L = PPh(3); R = Et, L = Py, CO] and [PtCl{(κ(2)-P,C)P(OC(6)H(4))(OPh)(2)}(NCEt)] are described starting from the easily available [PtCl(2)(NCR)(2)]. The stability of the products under different experimental conditions is discussed as well as their use as precursors to dinuclear complexes(More)
Crystals of trans-Pt₂(μ-X)₂X₂(CO)₂ (X = Br, I) have been grown and their molecular and crystalline structures have been solved by X-ray diffraction methods. In both cases the dinuclear molecules are bent, with a bending angle of 164.6° and 156.5° for the bromide and the iodide, respectively. While the structure of the bromo-derivative is reported here for(More)
A convenient synthetic route and the characterization of complexes trans-[PtCl2(L)(PPh3)] (L=Et2NH (2), (PhCH2)2NH (3), (HOCH2CH2)2NH) (4) are reported. The antiproliferative activity was evaluated on three human tumor cell lines. The investigation on the mechanism of action highlighted for the most active complex 4 the capacity to affect mitochondrial(More)
N,N-di- iso-propylcarbamato derivatives of boron(III) have been synthesized from di-iso-propylamine and boron trichloride in the presence of carbon dioxide. With a large excess of amine, a single boron product was obtained, [NH2i)Pr2][B(O2CNiPr2)4], 1, while with a lower excess a mixture of 1 and of the dinuclear derivative [B2(O2CNiPr2)6], 2, was produced.(More)
