Three novel zinc coordination polymers (NH(4))(n)[Zn(Hida)Cl(2)](n) (1), [Zn(ida)(H(2)O)(2)](n) (2), [Zn(Hida)(2)](n)·4nH(2)O (3) (H(2)ida = iminodiacetic acid) and a monomeric complex [Zn(ida)(phen)(H(2)O)]·2H(2)O (4) (phen=1,10-phenanthroline) have been synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction methods. 1 and 2 form one-dimensional (1-D) chain(More)
Catalytic partial oxidation of methane (POM) to synthesis gas (syngas) over Pt/Al(2)O(3) was investigated by in situ microprobe Raman and pulse reaction methods with attention focused on the mechanism of syngas formation in the oxidation zone (i.e., the catalyst zone in which O(2) was still available in the reaction feed). It was found that the amount of(More)
The photo-induced formation of peroxide ions on the surface of cubic Ln2O3 (Ln = Nd, Sm, Gd) was studied by in situ microprobe Raman spectroscopy using a 325 nm laser as excitation source. It was found that the Raman bands of peroxide ions at 833-843 cm(-1) began to grow at the expense of the Ln(3+)-O(2-) bands at 333-359 cm(-1) when the Ln2O3 samples under(More)
From neutral solutions, dimeric 1,3-propanediaminetetraacetato lanthanides (NH4)2[Ln2(1,3-pdta)2(H2O)4]·8H2O [Ln = La, 1; Ce, 2] and K2[Ln2(1,3-pdta)2(H2O)4]·11H2O [Ln = La, 3; Ce, 4] (1,3-H4pdta = 1,3-propanediaminetetraacetic acid, C11H18N2O8) were isolated in high yields. The reaction of excess strontium nitrate with 1 resulted in the formation of a two(More)
Adduct of mononuclear and dinuclear citrate zinc complex [Zn(Hcit)(phen)(H2O)][Zn2(Hcit)(phen)2(H2O)3]·13.5H2O (1) and its aggregate [Zn3(Hcit)2(phen)4]n·14nH2O (2) (H4cit = citric acid, phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) were synthesized in weak acidic solutions. The former was obtained from the reaction of zinc nitrate, citric acid and phenanthroline in a molar(More)
