The formation of Pt(eta(5)-C(5)Me(5))(CO){C(O)NR(2)} (R=Me, Et) complexes was established by spectroscopic analysis. The infrared spectra of these complexes showed a sharp absorption due to the presence of coordinated carbonyl group in the region 2017-2013cm(-1). The N,N-dialkylcarbamoyl ligands showed a characteristic CO stretching absorption in the range(More)
Transfer of silver ions across the water/1,2-dichloroethane interface was studied by cyclic voltammetry (CV). In the absence of added neutral ionophore, Ag+ transferred across the interface when the organic phase contained either tetraphenylborate or tetrakis(4-chloro)phenylborate anions, but this transfer was not possible in the presence of organic phase(More)
The molecular structures of 1,2-closo-P(2)B(10)H(10) (1) and 1,2-closo-As(2)B(10)H(10) (2) have been determined by gas electron diffraction and the results obtained compared with those from computation at the MP2/6-31G** level of theory. The level of agreement is good for 2 (root-mean-square [rms] misfit for As and B atoms 0.0297 Å) and very good for 1 (rms(More)
In the title compound, [Cu(C(5)HF(6)O(2))(2)(C(3)H(4)N(2)Se)(2)], the Cu(II) atom (site symmetry ) is coordinated by two O,O'-bidentate 1,1,1,5,5,5-hexa-fluoro-2,4-penta-nedione (hp) ligands and two 4-methyl-1,2,3-selenadiazole mol-ecules, resulting in a slightly distorted trans-CuN(2)O(4) octa-hedral geometry in which the cis angles deviate by less than 3°(More)
Alkyl, silyl, and phosphane ligands are amongst the most familiar and ubiquitous ligands in organometallic and coordination chemistry. The C, Si, and P donor atoms of these ligands are sp(3)-hybridized and the ligands are related to each other by the isolobal analogy: (CR(3))(-)⥈(SiR(3))(-)⥈PR(3). Herein, we demonstrate that although a(More)
Nickelocene adsorption and decomposition on the Ag(1 0 0) surface were studied with temperature programmed desorption and high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy. At monolayer coverages on the relatively inert Ag(1 0 0) surface at 175 K, nickelocene physisorbs molecularly, with its molecular axis perpendicular to the surface plane. Nickelocene(More)
We compare the molecular films of three different isomers of closo-dicarbadodecaborane (orthocarborane (1,2-C2B10H12), metacarborane (1,7-C2B10H12), paracarborane (1,12-C2B10H12)) and two related icosahedral cage molecules, 1-phospha-2-carbadodecaborane (1,2-PCB10H11) and 1-phospha-7-carbadodecaborane (1,7-PCB10H11) adsorbed on a variety of substrates.(More)
The dehydrogenation of semiconducting boron carbide (B(10)C(2)H(x)) films as well as the three closo-carborane isomers of dicarbadodecaborane (C(2)B(10)H(12)) and two isomers of the corresponding closo-phosphacarborane (PCB(10)H(11)) all appear to be very similar. Photoionization mass spectrometry studies at near-threshold gas phase photoionization indicate(More)
The molecular structure of the bulky primary silane, (Me(3)Si)(3)CSiH(3), in the gas phase has been determined by electron diffraction. Photolysis of (Me(3)Si)(3)CSiH(3) affords a convenient route to the bulky dialkyl disilane, [(Me(3)Si)(3)CSiH(2)](2), which is the first 1,2-dialkyldisilane to be structurally characterised by single-crystal X-ray(More)
