A 3D metal ion assisted assembly of nanoparticles has been developed. The approach relies on the efficient complexation of cadmium ions and 5-mercaptomethyltetrazole employed as the stabilizer of both colloidal CdTe and Au nanoparticles. It enables in a facile way the formation of hybrid metal-semiconductor 3D structures with controllable and tunable(More)
A novel ligand, 5-mercaptomethyltetrazole, is applied to the direct colloidal synthesis of highly luminescent (quantum yield of up to 60%) water-soluble CdTe nanocrystals. In the synthesis the 5-mercaptomethyltetrazole behaves analogously to the widely used thioglycolic acid, providing the additional advantage of solubility of the resulting nanocrystals in(More)
While bis(1-methyl-1H-tetrazol-5-yl)diazene, C4H6N10, (I), has no crystallographically imposed symmetry, in the two title chlorocopper(I) complexes, [Cu2Cl2(C4H6N10)]n, (II), and [CuCl(C4H6N10)]n, (III), the organic ligands lie across centres of inversion; in (III), the Cu and Cl atoms additionally lie about a twofold rotation axis in the space group P2/c.(More)
Capping agents play an important role in the colloidal synthesis of nanomaterials because they control the nucleation and growth of particles, as well as their chemical and colloidal stability. During recent years tetrazole derivatives have proven to be advanced capping ligands for the stabilization of semiconductor and metal nanoparticles. Tetrazole-capped(More)
The title compound, C(7)H(13)N(5), a tetrazole analogue of betaines, exists as a zwitterion, with the H atom of the tetrazole ring being transferred to the piperidine ring N atom. The tetrazole ring symmetry is close to C(2v), which suggests strong charge delocalization in the N-C-N fragment of the ring. There are classical hydrogen bonds in the structure(More)
In the molecule of the title 1,5-disubstituted tetrazole, C(13)H(17)N(5), the tetrazole and benzene rings are not coplanar, having a dihedral angle of 42.96 (5) degrees between them. The piperidine fragment adopts a chair conformation, and there is a non-classical intramolecular contact between the benzene H atom and the piperidine N atom. Intermolecular(More)
A facile method for the preparation of the novel capping ligand 5-(2-mercaptoethyl)-1H-tetrazole for the stabilization of water-soluble nanocrystals was developed. This effective synthetic procedure is based on the cycloaddition of sodium azide to 3,3'-dithiobis(propionitrile) followed by the reductive cleavage of a S-S bond with triphenylphosphine. The(More)
Non-ordered porous networks, so-called aerogels, can be achieved by the 3D assembly of quantum dots (QDs). These materials are well suited for photonic applications, however a certain quenching of the photoluminescence (PL) intensity is observed in these structures. This PL quenching is mainly attributed to the energy transfer mechanisms that result from(More)
The title compound, [CuCl(2)(C(5)H(11)N(5))], is the first structurally characterized molecular chelate complex involving an alpha-aminoalkyltetrazole. There are two complex molecules in the asymmetric unit. The ligand molecules are bidentate. Both Cu atoms reveal rather distorted square-planar coordinations. The complex molecules are linked together by van(More)
The macrocyclic complex [Ni2(L)(OAc)]ClO4 (1) adsorbs up to 17 molar equivalents (>270 wt%) of iodine, although it does not exhibit permanent porosity. Vibrational spectroscopic and crystallographic studies reveal that two I2 molecules are captured by means of thiophenolate→I2 charge-transfer interactions, which enable the diffusion and sorption of further(More)
