A new 8-hydroxyquinoline-based chemosensor possessing a semirigid structure was designed, and its fluorescent sensing behavior toward metalions was investigated. A prominent fluorescence enhancement only for Cd(2+) was found in aqueous methanol solution. The results clearly suggest that the specific semirigid structure could selectively accommodate Cd(2+)(More)
A new 1,3,4-oxadiazole-based fluorescence chemosensor 1, N-(2-ethoxy-2-oxoethyl)-N-(5-(2-hydroxy-3,5-di-tert-butylphenyl)-[1,3,4]oxadiazol-2-yl)glycine ethyl ester, has been designed and synthesized. Its fluorescence properties and selectivity for various metal ions were investigated in detail. A prominent fluorescence enhancement only for Zn(2+) was found(More)
In the title compound, [Pr(C(32)H(30)N(2)O(6))(NO(3))]·CHCl(3), the Pr(III) ion is ten-coordinated by eight O atoms and two N atoms from the acyclic crown-type Schiff base ligand and the bidentate nitrate group. The coordination polyhedron around Pr(III) is a distorted bicapped square anti-prism. The chloro-form solvent mol-ecule is not involved either in(More)
A new C(2)-symmetric chiral catalyst 3,5-bis[(2S)-(hydroxy-diphenylmethyl)- pyrrolidin-1-ylmethyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazole was successfully synthesized by the reaction of 2,5-dichloromethyl-1,3,4-oxadiazole with (S)-alpha,alpha-diphenyl-2-pyrrolidinemethanol, and applied to the catalytic asymmetric reduction of prochiral ketones with borane. When the catalyst(More)
Two new structure-related tripodal ligands featuring salicylamide pendant arms, 1,3,5-tris{[(2'-furfurylaminoformyl)phenoxyl]methyl}-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene (L(I)) and 1,1,1-tris{[(2'-furfurylaminoformyl)phenoxyl]methyl}ethane (L(II)) have been designed and synthesized with the ultimate aim of self-assembling lanthanide polymers with interesting luminescent(More)
A new amide-based 1,3,4-oxadiazole derivative ligand 2,5-bis[2-(N,N-diethyl-1'-oxopropylamide)phenyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazole (L) and its complexes, Ln(NO3)3L (Ln=La, Eu, Gd, Tb, Er), were synthesized. The complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, infrared spectra and conductivity. The lanthanide ions were coordinated by O atoms from CO. The fluorescence(More)
Cluster's last stand: Six chiral reduced Schiff base ligands containing amino acids and seven La(III) ions self-assemble to form a novel heptameric lanthanum supramolecule with the aid of the CO(3)(2-) ion (see picture). The cluster exists as a single chiral triple helix. The CO(3)(2-) ion, which is derived from atmospheric CO(2) , adopts a rare(More)
In the title compound, [Ni(C(16)H(8)N(2)O(4))(C(5)H(5)N)(3)]·C(5)H(5)N, the Ni(II) atom is six-coordinated by two O atoms and one N atom from the Schiff base ligand and by three N atoms from three pyridine mol-ecules, forming a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The Ni-O(phenolate) bond [1.9750 (16) Å] is shorter than the Ni-O(carbon-yl) bond [2.0840 (16) Å](More)
Stimuli-responsive luminescent materials, which are dependent on changes in physical molecular packing modes, have attracted more and more interest over the past ten years. In this study, 2,2-dihydroxy-1,1-naphthalazine was synthesized and shown to exhibit different fluorescence emission in solution and solid states with characteristic aggregation-induced(More)
A novel "turn-on" phosphorescent chemodosimeter based on a cyclometalated Ir(III) complex has been designed and synthesized, which displays high selectivity and sensitivity toward Hg(2+) in aqueous media with a broad pH range of 4-10. Furthermore, by time-resolved photoluminescence techniques, some interferences from the short-lived background fluorescence(More)
