Synthesis, structure, and dissociation equilibrium of [Co(eta5-C5H5)(Se2C6H4)]2, a novel metalladiselenolene complex.
A (phenylenediselenolato)cobalt complex dimer, synthesized by a reaction of carbonyl(eta(5)-cyclopentadienyl)diiodocobalt(III) with poly(o-diselenobenzene), has shown covalent Co-Se bonds bridge the metal centers. Expand
Bio-photosensor: Cyanobacterial photosystem I coupled with transistor via molecular wire.
We report on the first successful output of electrons directly from photosystem I (PSI) of thermophilic cyanobacteria to the gate of a field-effect transistor (FET) by bypassing electron flow via aExpand
Photo-controllable tristability of a dithiolato-bipyridine-Pt(II) complex molecule containing two azobenzene moieties.
A new platinum complex with both an azo-bound dithiolato ligand and an azobenzene-bound bipyridine ligand exhibits tristability reversibly controllable using different energy lights.
Synthesis of molecular wires of linear and branched bis(terpyridine)-complex oligomers and electrochemical observation of through-bond redox conduction.
The unique current-versus-time behavior observed under all conditions indicates that electron conduction occurs not by diffusional motion but by successive electron hopping between neighboring redox sites within a molecular wire. Expand
Superior electron-transport ability of pi-conjugated redox molecular wires prepared by the stepwise coordination method on a surface.
The results indicate that facile sequential electron hopping between neighboring metal-complex units within the wire is responsible for the high electron-transport ability. Expand
Reversible photoelectronic signal conversion based on photoisomerization-controlled coordination change of azobenzene-bipyridine ligands to copper.
UV/blue light information can be successfully transformed into an electrode potential change and positive/negative current response, which is closely related to natural visual transduction both functionally and mechanically. Expand
Stepwise Preparation of Linear π-Conjugated Bis(terpyridine)metal Polymer Chains at Gold Surface
Defect-free structures of a film composed of linear redox polymer chains were prepared using stepwise complexation of Fe(II) and/or Co(II/III) ions with azobenzene-bridged bis(tpy) (tpy = 2,2′:6′,2...
Synthesis of heterometal cluster complexes by the reaction of cobaltadichalcogenolato complexes with groups 6 and 8 metal carbonyls.
In the dinuclear group 8 metal-Co complexes, 5 and 6, the CpCo(S2C6H4) moiety and the metal carbonyl moiety act as a Lewis acid character and a base character, respectively, as determined by their spectrochemical and redox properties. Expand
