A new cationic complex, [99mTc(tetrofosmin)2O2]+, where tetrofosmin is the ether functionalized diphosphine ligand 1,2-bis[bis(2-ethoxyethyl)phosphino]ethane, has been synthesized and evaluated for potential use in myocardial perfusion imaging. The structure of the complex has been determined by x-ray crystallography of the 99Tc analog. In comparison with(More)
Comparative X-ray crystallographic structure analyses have been carried out on seven cyclopenta[a]phenanthrenes, namely 15,16-dihydocyclopenta[a]phenanthren-17-one and its 2-, 6- and 12-methyl homologues (non-carcinogens) and the 7-and 11-methyl and 1,11-methano derivatives (carcinogens). All-valence-electron molecular-orbital calculations by the CNDO/2(More)
Deprotonation of [Et(3)NH][C(5)(CN)(5)] with metal bases provides a very simple approach to coordination compounds containing the pentacyanocyclopentadienide anion [C(5)(CN)(5)](-) (1). The three-dimensional polymer [Na(thf)(1.5)(1)](∞) and the molecular dimer [{(tmeda)(2)Na(1)}(2)] are obtained by reaction of this precursor with NaH in the presence of thf(More)
A new [2+2] tetra-hydrazone macrocyclic receptor was significantly amplified in a dynamic combinatorial library upon templation with alkaline earth metal ions. After optimisation the product could be isolated in 95% yield and its interaction with ions was investigated by NMR and UV-Vis spectroscopy.
An aluminum ate base, i-Bu(3)Al(TMP)Li, has been designed and developed for regio- and chemoselective direct generation of functionalized aromatic aluminum compounds. Direct alumination followed by electrophilic trapping with I(2), Cu/Pd-catalyzed C-C bond formation, or direct oxidation with molecular O(2) proved to be a powerful tool for the preparation of(More)
The facile syntheses and the structures of five new Cu(I) alkynyl clusters, [Cu(12)(hfac)(8)(C[triple chemical bond]CnPr)(4)(thf)(6)]xTHF (1), [Cu(12)(hfac)(8)(C[triple chemical bond]CtBu)(4)] (2), [Cu(12)(hfac)(8)(C[triple chemical bond]CSiMe(3))(4)] (3), [Cu(10)(hfac)(6)(C[triple chemical bond]CtBu)(4)(diethyl ether)]/[Cu(10)(hfac)(6)(C[triple chemical(More)
The reactions of Na[C(5)(CN)(5)] (Na[1]) with group 11 phosphine complexes [(P)(n)MCl] (M = Cu, Ag, Au, P = Ph(3)P; M = Cu, P = dppe (Ph(2)PCH(2)CH(2)PPh(2))] give a range of compounds containing the pentacyanocyclopentadienide ligand, [C(5)(CN)(5)](-) (1). The new complexes [(Ph(3)P)(2)M{1}](2) [M = Cu (3); M = Ag (5)], [(Ph(3)P)(3)Ag{1}] (4),(More)
The sequential treatment of Lewis acids with N,N'-bidentate ligands and thereafter with ButLi has afforded a series of hydride-encapsulating alkali metal polyhedra. While the use of Me3Al in conjunction with Ph(2-C5H4N)NH gives Ph(2-C5H4N)NAlMe2 and this reacts with MeLi in thf to yield the simple 'ate complex Ph(2-C5H4N)NAlMe3Li.thf, the employment of an(More)
The room-temperature reactions of Sn(NMe(2))(2) with less sterically demanding primary phosphines (RPH(2)) give the homoleptic phosphanediide compounds [SnPR](n) in high yields (R=tBu (1a), cyclohexyl (1b), 1-adamantyl (1c)). However, the room-temperature reaction of Mes*PH(2) (Mes*=2,4,6-tBu(3)C(6)H(2)) with Sn(NMe(2))(2) gives the model intermediate(More)
