An Al(3+) selective ratiometric fluorescent probe (L) has been synthesized by condensation of 4,5-diaminopyrimidine with 1-pyrenecarboxaldehyde. The structure of L has been confirmed by single crystal X-ray analysis. In the presence of Al(3+), L exhibits a considerable excimer emission at 445 nm along with the decrease of its monomer emission at 368 nm in(More)
An efficient Al(3+) receptor, 6-(2-hydroxybenzylideneamino)-2H-chromen-2-one (HBC), has been synthesized by condensing salicylaldehyde with 6-aminocoumarin. The molecular structure of HBC has been determined by a single crystal X-ray analysis. It was established that in the presence of Al(3+), HBC shows 25 fold enhancement of fluorescence intensity which(More)
The article deals with coordination compounds of iron(II) that may exhibit thermally induced spin transition, known as spin crossover, depending on the nature of the coordinating ligand sphere. Spin transition in such compounds also occurs under pressure and irradiation with light. The spin states involved have different magnetic and optical properties(More)
One-dimensional (1D) coordination polymers of formula [Fe(NH(2)trz)(3)]A.nH(2)O, {A = TiF(6)(2-), n = 0.5 (1) and n = 1 (2); A = ZrF(6)(2-), n = 0.5 (3) and n = 0 (4); A = SnF(6)(2-), n = 0.5 (5) and n = 1 (6); A = TaF(7)(2-), n = 3 (7) and n = 2.5 (8); A = GeF(6)(2-), n = 1 (9) and n = 0.5 (10), NH(2)trz = 4-amino-1,2,4-triazole} have been synthesized,(More)
Iron(II) spin crossover molecular materials are made of coordination centres switchable between two states by temperature, pressure or a visible light irradiation. The relevant macroscopic parameter which monitors the magnetic state of a given solid is the high-spin (HS) fraction denoted n(HS), i.e., the relative population of HS molecules. Each spin(More)
The thermally induced hysteretic spin transition (ST) that occurs in the polymeric chain compound [Fe(NH(2)trz)(3)](NO(3))(2) (1) above room temperature (T(c)(upward arrow) = 347 K, T(c)(downward arrow) = 314 K) has been tracked by (57)Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, SQUID magnetometry, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and X-ray powder diffraction (XPRD)(More)
The colorimetric analysis of images recorded with an optical microscope during the onset of the spin crossover transformation allows monitoring separately the involved electronic and structural aspects, through the separation of resonant absorption and scattering effects. Complementary information can also be obtained by using the polarized modes of the(More)
[Fe(NH2trz)3]SnF6n x H2O (NH(2)trz=4-amino-1,2,4-triazole; n=1 (1), n=0.5 (2)) are new 1D spin-crossover coordination polymers. Compound 2 exhibits an incomplete spin transition centred at around 210 K with a thermal hysteresis loop approximately 16 K wide. The spin transition of 2 was detected by the Mössbauer resonance of the 119Sn atom in the SnF6 (2-)(More)
The first crystal structures of a dinuclear iron(II) complex with three N1,N2-1,2,4-triazole bridges in the high-spin and low-spin states are reported. Its sharp spin transition, which was probed using X-ray, calorimetric, magnetic, and (57)Fe Mossbauer analyses, is also delineated in the crystalline state by variable-temperature fluorimetry for the first(More)
