In the title compound, [RuCl(C(6)H(6))(C(10)H(8)N(2))]Cl·1.5CH(4)O, the Ru(II) atom is in a distorted octa-hedral environment coordinated by an η(6)-benzene ring, a chelating 2,2'-bipyridine ligand and a chloride ion. The asymmetric unit is completed by a chloride anion and two methanol mol-ecules, one of which is disordered about a centre of inversion with(More)
A family of tridendate ligands 1 a-e, based on the 2-aryl-4,6-di(2-pyridyl)-s-triazine motif, was prepared along with their hetero- and homoleptic Ru(II) complexes 2 a-e ([Ru(tpy)(1 a-e)](2+); tpy=2,2':6',2"-terpyridine) and 3 a-e ([(Ru(1 a-e)(2)](2+)), respectively. The ligands and their complexes were characterized by (1)H NMR spectroscopy, ES-MS, and(More)
The title compound, C(22)H(28)Br(2)O(2), crystallizes in a staggered arrangement to minimize the inter-actions of its ortho substituents, with a dihedral angle of 84.2 (3)° between the two aromatic rings. Short C-H⋯O hydrogen-bonding inter-actions between meth-oxy groups result in a one-dimensional polymeric chain of mol-ecules lying parallel to the b axis.(More)
The crystal structures of tris(ethylmethylamino)-cyclopropenium chloride and tris(diethylamino)-cyclopropenium iodide reveal the presence of closely bound dicationic dimers formed from two closed-shell monomer units. The distances between the C3 centroids of the staggered monomers are at the short end of those normally found in π-stacked neutral arenes, let(More)
The structure of the title compound, C(23)H(18)N(2)S, is revealed by X-ray diffraction to be almost planar over all four aromatic rings; the pendant rings are at angles of 10.18, 14.12 and 15.42° relative to the central pyridine ring for the 4-methylsulfanyl, 2-pyridyl and 6-phenyl rings, respectively. The 2,6-aromatic substituents are disordered over two(More)
The compound [(Cu(PPh(3))(2))(3)(HATNMe(6))](BF(4))(3) has been synthesized and characterized by X-ray crystallography, resonance Raman spectroscopy, and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The X-ray structure of solvated [(Cu(PPh(3))(2))(3)(HATNMe(6))](BF(4))(3) [rhombohedral, R3, a = b = 21.6404(4) A, c = 53.188(3) A, alpha = beta = 90 degrees,(More)
A new series of iridium cyclometalated complexes with a C/N/C dppy-type ligand and a N/N/N tpy-type ligand have been synthesized and characterized by various techniques such as mass spectrometry, 1H and 13C NMR, cyclic voltammetry, both steady-state and time-resolved emission and absorption studies, and time-dependent DFT (TDDFT) calculations. The complexes(More)
Synchrotron XPS was used to investigate a series of chemically-synthesised, atomically-precise gold clusters Au(n)(PPh(3))(y) (n = 8, 9, 11 and 101, with y depending on cluster size) immobilized on titania nanoparticles. The gold clusters were washed with toluene at 100 °C or calcined at 200 °C to remove the organic ligand. From the position of the Au(More)
The synthesis, structure, magnetic properties, and theoretical analysis of a new phase of dichloro(2-chloro-3-methylpyridine)copper(II) (2) and its isomorphous analogue dichloro(2-bromo-3-methylpyridine)copper(II) (3) are reported. Both complexes crystallize in the orthorhombic space group Pbca and present square pyramidal Cu(II) ions bridged into chains by(More)
The dinuclear ruthenium complex of a large, planar bis-tridentate bridging ligand has been prepared; to the best of our knowledge, this species is the near IR-emitting Ru(II) complex exhibiting the longest-lived emission and highest quantum yield reported so far, due to the dramatic reduction in its radiationless decay rate constant.
