Tyrammonium 4-nitrophthalate has been synthesized and its structural and spectroscopic properties elucidated by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, solid-state polarized IR-spectroscopy of oriented colloids in a nematic host, HPLC with tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC ESI-MSMS), and TGV and DSC methods. The compound crystallizes in the monoclinic P21/c space(More)
The crystal structure of β-cyclo-dextrin, C(42)H(70)O(35)·10.41H(2)O, consists of truncated cone-shaped β-cyclo-dextrin mol-ecules that are herringbone packed. The primary hydr-oxy groups form an intra-molecular hydrogen-bonded array. The semipolar cavity of the cyclo-dextrin host is filled with water mol-ecules, which show partial occupancy and disorder.
The cyclic disulfide-bridged tetrapeptide cyclo(Boc-Cys-Pro-Gly-Cys-OMe) (1) was designed as a model for the study of solvent-driven conformational changes in peptides. The three-dimensional structure and dynamics of 1 were studied using a variety of experimental and computational techniques. The crystal structure of 1 reveals a β-turn stabilized by a(More)
A series of malonate complexes of dysprosium were synthesized as potential metalorganic precursors for Dy containing oxide thin films using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) related techniques. The steric bulkiness of the dialkylmalonato ligand employed was systematically varied and its influence on the resulting structural and physico-chemical properties(More)
The 2:1 sandwich-type complexes formed between a cyclopeptide with alternating L-proline and 6-aminopicolinic acid subunits and inorganic anions can be stabilized by covalently linking a tris-alkyne and a tris-azide derivative of this peptide through copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition. The resulting triply linked bis-cyclopeptide can interact with(More)
A distortion of the aromatic character and stabilization of the imino-form as a result of the protonation of 4-dimethylaminopyridine was established by IR-, UV- and 1H NMR-spectral analysis of 4-diaminopyridinium hydrogensquarate. Quantum chemical calculations were carried out at MP2 and B3LYP levels of theory and a 6-311++G** basis set with a view to(More)
Organozinc (ZnR with R = Cp*, Me, Cl, Br) ligated transition metal (M) half-sandwich compounds of general formula [Cp*M(ZnR)5] (M = Fe, Ru) are presented in this work. The new compounds were obtained by treatment of various GaCp* ligated precursors with suitable amounts of ZnMe2 to exchange Ga against Zn. This exchange follows a strict Ga:Zn ratio of 1:2.(More)
The title compound, 2-(phenylethyl)ammonium hydrogensquarate hemihydrate, was synthesized and structurally and spectroscopically characterized by a single crystal X-ray diffraction and solid-state polarized IR spectroscopy of oriented colloids in a nematic host. The crystal structure consists of two crystallographically independent 2-(phenylethyl)ammonium(More)
Acetic anhydride (ethanoic anhydride), (CH3CO)2O, is a widely used acetylation reagent in organic synthesis. The crystal and molecular structure, as determined by single-crystal X-ray analysis at 100 K, is reported for the first time. A crystal of the title compound (m.p. 200 K) suitable for X-ray diffraction was grown from the melt at low temperature. The(More)
The bottom-up synthesis of organometallic zinc clusters is described. The cation {[Zn10](Cp*)6 Me}(+) (1) is obtained by reacting [Zn2 Cp*2] with [FeCp2][BAr4 (F)] in the presence of ZnMe2. In the presence of suitable ligands, the high reactivity of 1 enables the controlled abstraction of single Zn units, providing access to the lower-nuclearity clusters(More)
