We aim at the construction of luminosity and mass functions for Galactic open clusters, based on integrated magnitudes and tidal masses. We also aim at studying the evolution of these functions, with the ultimate purpose of deriving the initial luminosity and mass distributions of star clusters, independent of model assumptions regarding the cluster(More)
Thanks to its high operating voltage, the LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) spinel represents a promising next-generation cathode material candidate for Lithium ion batteries. However, LNMO-based full-cells with organic carbonate solvent electrolytes suffer from severe capacity fading issues, associated with electrolyte decomposition and concurrent degradative(More)
We present results of a study of the galactic open cluster population based on the all-sky catalogue ASCC-2.5 (I/280A) compiled from Tycho-2, Hipparcos and other catalogues. The sample of optical clusters from ASCC-2.5 is complete up to about 850 pc from the Sun. The symmetry plane of the clusters’ distribution is determined to be at Z0 = −22 ± 4 pc, and(More)
The synthesis and the full characterization of a new ruthenium(II) complex with the pentadentate bispidine ligand L(1) is reported and shown to be a very active catalyst for olefin epoxidation. The selectivity in the epoxidation of cis- and trans-beta-methylstyrene with the formation of cis and trans products, each, was determined and compared with that of(More)
Four new Ru(II)-Cl and Ru(II)-H(2)O complexes containing the meridional 2,2':6',2"-terpyridine (trpy) ligand and the chelating 2-(5-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine (H3p) ligand of general formula in- and out-[Ru(II) (trpy)(H3p)(X)](n+) (X=Cl, n=1; X=H(2)O, n=2) have been prepared, isolated and thoroughly characterized both in solution and in the solid(More)
We present the first data release of the Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE), an ambitious spectroscopic survey to measure radial velocities and stellar atmosphere parameters (temperature, metallicity, surface gravity) of up to one million stars using the 6dF multi-object spectrograph on the 1.2-m UK Schmidt Telescope of the Anglo-Australian Observatory(More)
We present the second data release of the Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE), an ambitious spectroscopic survey to measure radial velocities and stellar atmosphere parameters (temperature, metallicity, surface gravity, and rotational velocity) of up to one million stars using the 6dF multi-object spectrograph on the 1.2-m UK Schmidt Telescope of the(More)
The synthesis of new dinuclear complexes of the general formula in,in-{[Ru(II)(trpy)(L)](μ-bpp)[Ru(II)(trpy)(L')]}(3+) [bpp(-) is the bis(2-pyridyl)-3,5-pyrazolate anionic ligand; trpy is the 2,2':6',2″-terpyridine neutral meridional ligand, and L and L' are monodentate ligands; L = L' = MeCN, 3a(3+); L = L' = 3,5-lutidine (Me(2)-py), 3c(3+); L = MeCN, L' =(More)
We present a list of 130 Galactic Open Clusters, found in the All-Sky Compiled Catalogue of 2.5 Million Stars (ASCC-2.5). For these clusters we determined and publish a homogeneous set of astrophysical parameters such as size, membership, motion, distance and age. In a previous work 520 already known open clusters out of the sample of 1700 clusters from the(More)
Context. For Galactic open clusters fundamental parameters like age or reddening are usually determined independently of their integrated colours. For extragalactic clusters, on the other hand, they are essentially derived via a comparison of their integrated colours with predictions of simple stellar population (SSP) models. Aims. We have found a(More)
