The reactions of zinc dialkyls, R(2)Zn (1a-d; R = Me (a), Et (b), iPr (c) and tBu (d)), with N,N-dialkylhydroxylamines, HO-NR'(2) (2a-c; R' = Me (a), Et (b) and iPr (c)), afford organozinc hydroxylamides under alkane extrusion. Species of different nuclearity are observed, depending on the hydroxylamine 2 employed. The smaller 2a and 2b give pentanuclear(More)
We present a detailed study of Raman spectroscopy and photoluminescence measurements on Li-doped ZnO nanocrystals with varying lithium concentrations. The samples were prepared starting from molecular precursors at low temperature. The Raman spectra revealed several sharp lines in the range of 100-200 cm(-1), which are attributed to acoustical phonons. In(More)
A convenient and efficient synthesis of the stable monolithium alkylzinc alkoxo cubanes {Li(thf)(RZn)(3)(OR')(4)} [R = Me, R' = (i)Pr (1), (t)Bu (2); R = Et, R' = (i)Pr (3), (t)Bu (4)] is reported. They are well soluble in organic solvents and suitable molecular precursors for the formation of Li-containing ZnO nanoparticles. The compounds are accessible by(More)
The first organometallic clusters of mixed hydrazide/hydroxylamide clusters of zinc, [Zn(MeZn)(4)(HNNMe(2))(2)(ONEt(2))(4)] and {Zn(EtZn)(4)[HNN(CH(2))(5)](2)(ONEt(2))(4)} were synthesized in one-pot synthesis protocols from dialkylzinc solutions, substituted hydrazines and N,N-diethylhydroxylamine; competing for the Zn atoms, the different binding(More)
Oxygenation reactions of dialkylzinc solutions have been investigated. Me2Zn reacts with oxygen in the absence of water to give the bis(heterocubane) [(MeZn)6Zn(OMe)8], whereas Et2Zn and iPr2Zn afford the mono(heterocubanes) [(RZn)4(OR)4]. In the presence of small amounts of water (added during or after the oxygenation) the product types are reversed for(More)
The introduction of fluorinated aryls at zinc in Zn(4)N(8)-type (and to a lesser extent Zn(4)N(6)O) cages led to enhanced H(2) uptake. Lithium alkoxides have been shown to link such cages (non-fluorinated), but showed no substantial improvement in uptake.
The title compound, [Be2(C6H14NO)4], was prepared from a solution of BeCl2 in diethyl ether and two equivalents of O-lithia-ted N,N-diisopropyl-hydoxyl-amine. The mol-ecular structure is composed of a dinuclear unit forming a central five-membered planar Be-O-Be-O-N ring (sum of inter-nal angles = 540.0°; r.m.s. deviation from planarity = 0.0087 Å). Both Be(More)
Tetrameric [{RZn(NHNMe2)}4] (R = Me, Et), the first organometallic zinc hydrazides to be described, have been prepared by alkane elimination from dialkylzinc solutions and N,N-dimethylhydrazine. They were characterised by 1H and 13C NMR and IR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, elemental analysis and X-ray crystallography. The compounds form asymmetric(More)
