The geometries, electronic structures, and spectroscopic properties of Ir(ppy)2(N--N)(+) (1) (N--N = 2-phenyl-1H-imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline, ppy = 2-phenylpyridine), Ir(ppy)2(N--N)(+) x F(-) (2), Ir(ppy)2(N--N)(+) x CF3COOH (3/3a), and Ir(ppy)2(N--N)(+) x CH3COO(-) (4) were investigated theoretically. The ground and the excited state geometries of(More)
A facile precipitation method has been developed to synthesize ZnO with [bis(2-aminoethyl)amino]methyl lignin (lignin amine) that is chemically modified from low-cost pulp industrial lignin. The obtained ZnO crystallites have been characterized to exhibit a hexagonal wurtzite structure, and their sizes have been determined at ca. 24 nm (mean value). These(More)
A new functionalized cluster, [Ge5Ni2(CO)3]2-, derived from the closo-[E5]2- (E = Si-Pb) anions which have been known for decades but whose reactivity has rarely been studied, was successfully isolated from the reaction of [Ni(PPh3)2(CO)2] and [Ge5]2- in ethylenediamine (en) solution, and its formation pathway was also investigated.
The structures of trans-[M(2)(CN)(4)(PH(2)CH(2)PH(2))(2)] (M = Pt (1), Pd (2), and Ni (3)), trans-[Pt(2)X(4)(PH(2)CH(2)PH(2))(2)] (X = Cl (4) and Br (5)), and trans-[M(CN)(2)(PH(3))(2)] (M = Pt (6), Pd (7), and Ni (8)) in the ground state were optimized using the MP2 method. Frequency calculations reveal that the weak metal-metal interaction is essentially(More)
The electronic structures and spectroscopic properties of the three tridentate cyclometalated Pt(II) complexes Pt(N/\N/\C)C(triple bond)CPh (N/\N/\CH = 6-phenyl-2,2'-bipyridine) (1), Pt(N/\N/\S)C(triple bond)CPh (N/\N/\SH = 6-thienyl-2,2'-bipyridine) (2), and Pt(N/\N/\O)C(triple bond)CPh (N/\N/\OH = 6-furyl-2,2'-bipyridine) (3) were investigated(More)
The hydrothermal reaction of uranyl ions with (5-methyl-1,3-phenylene)diphosphonic acid (H4MPDP) in the presence of additives such as nitric acid, N-bearing species, and heterometal ions yielded five new uranyl organic hybrids: (H3O)[(UO2)5(H2O)4(H3DPB)2(H2DPB)(HDPB)]·2H2O (1), (Hphen)(phen)[(UO2)3(H2DPB)(HDPB)] (2), (H2dipy)[(UO2)3(MPDP)2] (3),(More)
Two 3D uranyl organic frameworks (UOFs) with entangled structures, (HPhen)2[(UO2)2L2]·4.5H2O (1) and [(UO2)3(H2O)4L2]·6H2O (2), were synthesized using a rigid tripodal linker (4,4',4″-(phenylsilanetriyl)tribenzoic acid, H3L). Compound 1 represents a 2-fold interpenetrating UOF with the unique (10,3)-b topology. Compound 2 is composed of three interlocked(More)
A series of ruthenium(II) complexes, [Ru(tcterpy)(NCS)3](4-) (0H), [Ru(Htcterpy)(NCS)3](3-) (1H), [Ru(H2tcterpy)(NCS)3](2-) (2H), and [Ru(H3tcterpy)(NCS)3](-) (3H) (tcterpy = 4,4',4''-tricarboxy-2,2':6',2''-terpyridine), are investigated theoretically to explore their electronic structures and spectroscopic properties. The geometry structures of the(More)
The computationally- and experimentally-determined molecular structures of a bis-uranyl(vi) complex of an expanded Schiff-base polypyrrolic macrocycle [(UO2)2(L)] are in close agreement only if the pyridine in the fifth equatorial donor site on the uranium is included in the calculations. The relativistic density functional theory (DFT) calculations(More)
Two new uranyl arsonates, Zn(UO(2))(PhAsO(3))(2)L·H(2)O [L = 1,10-phenanthroline (1) and 2,2'-bipyridine (2)], have been synthesized by hydrothermal reactions of phenylarsonic acid, L, and ZnUO(2)(OAc)(4)·7H(2)O. Single-crystal X-ray analyses demonstrate that these two compounds are isostructural and exhibit one-dimensional chains in which U(VI) and Zn(II)(More)
