The chemistry of fluorescent bodipy dyes: versatility unsurpassed.
The Bodipy family, first developed as luminescent tags and laser dyes, has become a cornerstone for these new applications and the near future looks extremely bright for "porphyrin's little sister".
Photochemical generation of carbon monoxide and hydrogen by reduction of carbon dioxide and water under visible light irradiation.
These processes represent an abiotic photosynthetic system allowing simultaneous generation of CO and H(2) and regulation of the CO/H( 2) ratio and are of significance for solar energy conversion with consumption of a pollutant, CO(2).
BODIPY derivatives as donor materials for bulk heterojunction solar cells.
BODIPY derivatives have been used as donor in solution-processed bulk heterojunction solar cells using PCBM as acceptor. A power conversion efficiency of 1.34% has been obtained under simulated solar
Lanthanides to quantum dots resonance energy transfer in time-resolved fluoro-immunoassays and luminescence microscopy.
A time-resolved fluoro-immunoassay (TR-FIA) format based on resonance energy transfer from visible emitting lanthanide complexes of europium and terbium, as energy donors, to semiconductor CdSe/ZnS core/shell nanocrystals (quantum dots, QD), as energy acceptors, with high sensitivity and transfer efficiency optimization.
Intramolecular Triplet Energy Transfer in Pyrene–Metal Polypyridine Dyads: A Strategy for Extending the Triplet Lifetime of the Metal Complex
Anelegantandflexiblesynthesis of pyrene-based dyads bearing ruthenium or osmium chromophoric moieties connected through a single C≡C bond or a Pt(C≡C)2 spacer is described (see picture).
Prototype protein assembly as scaffold for time-resolved fluoroimmuno assays.
Steady-state and time-resolved luminescence study of the dual-modified viruses demonstrated that the spectroscopic properties of the Tb complex are unperturbed by the labeling procedure, and shows that the two reactive sites can communicate with each other on the surface of a nanoscale biological assembly.
Dual emission from luminescent nonalanthanide clusters.
The structure of the Eu(III) compound reveals a host-guest assembly Eu with a substantial quantum yield with dual luminescence in the visible and NIR (Yb(III)) ranges.
Microwave-promoted hydrogenation and alkynylation reactions with palladium-loaded multi-walled carbon nanotubes
Multi-walled carbon nanotubes loaded with Pd(0) clusters (average size distribution 9 nm) have been used under microwave irradiation as catalysts in hydrogenation and alkynylation reactions under
