Anatase is known to decompose organic material by photocatalysis and to enhance surface wettability once irradiated by ultraviolet (UV) light. In this study, pulse magnetron-sputtered anatase thin films were investigated for their suitability with respect to specific biomedical applications, namely superhydrophilic and biofilm degrading implant surfaces.(More)
A series of bis(tridentate) ruthenium(II) complexes featuring new anionic 1,2,3-triazolate-based tridentate ligands and 2,2':6',2''-terpyridine is presented. For a complex equipped with carboxy anchoring groups, the performance in a dye-sensitized solar cell is evaluated. The title complexes are readily synthesized and can be decorated with alkyl chains(More)
A series of heteroleptic bis(tridentate) ruthenium(II) complexes bearing ligands featuring 1,2,3-triazolide and 1,2,3-triazolylidene units are presented. The synthesis of the C^N^N-coordinated ruthenium(II) triazolide complex is achieved by direct C-H activation, which is enabled by the use of a 1,5-disubstituted triazole. By postcomplexation alkylation,(More)
Polygonal supramolecular architectures of a Pt(ii) complex including trimers, tetramers, pentamers and hexamers were self-assembled via hydrogen bonding between isocytosine moieties; their structure at the solid/liquid interface was unravelled by in situ scanning tunneling microscopy imaging. Density functional theory calculations provided in-depth insight(More)
A systematic series of heteroleptic bis(tridentate)ruthenium(II) complexes of click-derived 1,3-bis(1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)benzene N^C^N-coordinating ligands was synthesized, analyzed by single crystal X-ray diffraction, investigated photophysically and electrochemically, and studied by computational methods. The presented comprehensive characterization allows(More)
Electrochemiluminescence (ECL) based on [Ru(bpy)3 ]2+ systems is widely utilized for immunoassays. In order to extend the promising potential of ECL-based applications, IrIII complexes have recently attracted attention as probes because of their excellent luminescent properties and tunable emission wavelength. Here we describe a series of Ir complexes using(More)
Most of the systems for photochemical hydrogen production are not stable and suffer from decomposition. With bis(bidentate) tetraphosphane ligands the stability increases enormously, up to more than 1000 h. This stability was achieved with a system containing osmium(ii) as a light harvesting antenna and palladium(ii) as a water reduction catalyst connected(More)
A ratiometric chemosensor for potassium is reported, based on phosphorescent dinuclear cyclometalated Pt(II) complexes featuring a cis-crown ether as the cation-recognition unit. The metal complexes are blue luminescent in a non-aggregated state but become strongly orange emissive when in a close physical proximity, as is the case when the macrocycle is in(More)
To initiate resistance switching phenomena, it is usually necessary to apply a strong electric field to a sample. This forming process poses very serious obstacles in real nanodevice applications. In unipolar resistance switching (URS), it is well known that the forming originates from soft dielectric breakdown. However, the forming in bipolar resistance(More)
A reactive phosphorescent probe for aza-heterocyclic drugs and toxins was developed, affording a supramolecular emission-switch-on chemosensor in water. Complex formation of the heterocycles with a platinum(II) precursor proceeds readily at ambient conditions, allowing for facile analyte screening. Fifty-two structurally diverse compounds were tested, out(More)
