A series of four novel 8-hydroxyquinoline-substituted boron-dipyrromethene derivatives, namely 4,4-difluoro-8-(5-(8-hydroxyquinoline))-3,5-dimethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (1), 4,4-difluoro-8-(5-(8-hydroxyquinoline))-1,3,5,7-tetramethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (2),(More)
We have used a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to manipulate heteroleptic phthalocyaninato, naphthalocyaninato, and porphyrinato double-decker (DD) molecules at the liquid-solid interface between 1-phenyloctane solvent and graphite. We employed nanografting of phthalocyanines with eight octyl chains to place these molecules into a matrix of heteroleptic(More)
The molecular and electronic structures together with the electronic absorption spectra of a series of metal free meso-ferrocenylporphyrins, namely 5-ferrocenylporphyrin (1), 5,10-diferrocenylporphyrin (2), 5,15-diferrocenylporphyrin (3), 5,10,15-triferrocenylporphyrin (4), and 5,10,15,20-tetraferrocenylporphyrin (5) have been studied with the density(More)
Homoleptic tetrakis[2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24-octa(butyloxy)phthalocyaninato] dysprosium-cadmium quadruple-decker complex 1 was isolated in relatively good yield of 43% from a simple one-pot reaction. This compound represents the first sandwich-type tetrakis(phthalocyaninato) rare earth-cadmium quadruple-decker SMM that has been structurally characterized.
A C1-symmerical meso-substituted ABCD-type porphyrin, [5-phenyl-10-(2-hydroxynaphthyl)-15-(4-hydroxyphenyl)porphyrinato]zinc(II) (1), has been synthesized and characterized. The molecular structure of 1 has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The complex 1 crystallizes in a triclinic system with one pair of enantiomeric molecules(More)
Mixed cyclization of 3-mono-, 4-mono-, or 4,5-di(porphyrinated) phthalonitrile compounds 2, 3, or 6 and unsubstituted phthalonitrile with the half-sandwich complex [EuIII(acac)(Pc)] (Pc=phthalocyaninate, acac=acetylacetonate) as the template in the presence of 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU) in n-pentanol afforded novel porphyrin-appended(More)
A series of 7 cerium double-decker complexes with various tetrapyrrole ligands including porphyrinates, phthalocyaninates, and 2,3-naphthalocyaninates have been prepared by previously described methodologies and characterized with elemental analysis and a range of spectroscopic methods. The molecular structures of two heteroleptic(More)
The nature of the broad and intense near-IR (NIR) absorptions of azulenocyanine (H(2)Azc) in the range of 720-1300 nm due to the π→π* transitions is clearly revealed on the basis of density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT (TD-DFT) calculations. The electron moving between peripheral conjugated systems and the eighteen electron-π-conjugated(More)
With the view to creating novel sandwich-type phthalocyaninato rare earth complexes toward new applications in material science and catalysis, d- and l-enantiomers of a series of optically active homoleptic bis(phthalocyaninato) rare earth double-deckers with four chiral menthol moieties at the peripheral positions of the phthalocyanine ligand, M(Pc*)(2)(More)
Three novel mixed (phthalocyaninato)(porphyrinato) yttrium double-decker complexes appended with one metal-free porphyrin chromophore at the para, meta, and ortho position, respectively, of one meso-phenyl group of the porphyrin ligand in the double-decker unit through ester linkage, 3-5, have been designed, synthesized, and spectroscopically characterized.(More)
