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)
Herein we describe the synthesis, structural and magnetic characterisation of three transition metal cluster complexes that feature the polytopic ligand N-(2-pyridyl)-3-carboxypropanamide (H2L): [Fe3(III)Fe2(II)(HL)6(O)(H2O)3][ClO4]5·3MeCN·4H2O, 1, [Co8(HL)8(O)(OH)4(MeOH)3(H2O)]-[ClO4]3·5MeOH·2H2O, 2, and [Cu6(L(ox))4(MeOH)(H2O)3]·MeOH, 3. Complex 1 is a(More)
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)
In the title complex, [Cu(C(20)H(13)BrN(4))(C(18)H(15)P)(2)]BF(4)·0.5CH(2)Cl(2), the copper(I) cation adopts a distorted tetra-hedral arrangement, coordinated by two triphenyl-phosphine ligands and two N atoms of the potentially tridentate terpyridine ligand. One half-mol-ecule of dichloro-methane crystallizes with the complex. The chlorine atoms are(More)
