Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

School of Chemistry and Environmental Engineering, Key Laboratory of Green Chemical Process of Ministry of Education, Wuhan Institute of Technology, Wuhan 430074, P. R. China.

In this work, we report the syntheses, crystal structures and magnetic properties of three novel Zn-Ln mixed metal complexes, namely [Zn4Dy2(L1)2(L2)2(N3)2]Cl2·2H2O (1), [Zn4Tb2(L1)2(L2)2(Cl)2][ZnN3Cl3]·2H2O (2), and [Zn4Gd2(L1)2(L2)2(Cl)2][ZnN3Cl3]·2H2O (3), in which L12- and L23- were formed from the ligand L [L = N1,N3-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)diethylenetriamine] through in situ reactions. Interestingly, carbon dioxide in air was absorbed in the process of forming carbamate ligand L23-; this can be ascribed to the insertion of CO2 into M-N amide bonds. Moreover, 1 and 2 represent the first series of 3d-4f SMMs containing carbamate ligands by fixation of CO2 in air. Read More

A secretory pathway kinase regulates sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca homeostasis and protects against heart failure.

Elife 2018 Dec 6;7. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Pharmacology, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, United States.

Ca signaling is important for many cellular and physiological processes, including cardiac function. Although sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) proteins involved in Ca signaling have been shown to be phosphorylated, the biochemical and physiological roles of protein phosphorylation within the lumen of the SR remain essentially uncharacterized. Our laboratory recently identified an atypical protein kinase, Fam20C, which is uniquely localized to the secretory pathway lumen. Read More

Deciphering crystal packing effects in the spin crossover of six [Fe(2-pic)]Cl solvatomorphs.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Institut für Physik, Universität zu Lübeck, Ratzeburger Allee 160, D-23562 Lübeck, Germany.

In this work we investigate how the crystal packing affects the spin crossover (SCO) of [FeII(2-pic)3]Cl2. Four alcohol solvatomorphs of this compound have been reported to present a transition from a singlet low spin (LS, S = 0) to a quintet high spin (HS, S = 5) state at different temperatures, whereas two other solvatomorphs remain in the HS state along the entire range of temperatures explored. Given that all these solvatomorphs are isostructural, this behavior hints at crystal packing effects playing an important role in the spin transition. Read More

Reversible complexation of ammonia by breaking a manganese-manganese bond in a manganese carbonyl ethylenedithiolate complex: a theoretical study of an unusual type of Lewis acid.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 6. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Department of Chemistry, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia 30602, USA.

The reaction of Mn(CO)5Br with sodium ethylenedithiolate was reported in 1968 to give a dark red binuclear H2C2S2Mn2(CO)6 complex possessing the unusual property of complexing reversibly with ammonia to give a yellow H2C2S2Mn2(CO)6·NH3 adduct. In order to provide some insight into the nature of this adduct, density functional studies were performed on the H2C2S2Mn2(CO)n (n = 4 to 8) systems as well as their relevant ammonia and trimethylphosphine adducts. These theoretical studies support the structure of H2C2S2Mn2(CO)6 originally suggested 50 years ago involving the binding of the ethylenedithiolate C[double bond, length as m-dash]C double bond as well as the sulfur atoms to the Mn2 unit with a bonding Mn-Mn distance of ∼2.

On the sensitization of Eu with Ce and Tb by composite structured CaLuHfAlO garnet phosphors for blue LED excitation.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Chemical Engineering, Münster University of Applied Sciences, Stegerwaldstrasse 39, D-48565 Steinfurt, Germany.

This work deals with the photoluminescence of various composite structured Ca2LuHf2Al3O12 garnet type LED phosphors. It is well known that sensitization of Eu3+ with Ce3+ suffers from metal-to-metal charge transfer (MMCT) quenching. Spatial separation of the sensitizer and activator results in a reduced quenching mechanism and thus higher luminescence intensities, when Ce3+ is excited in the blue spectral range and transfers its energy to Eu3+.

Isotopic labelling in ethylene oligomerization: addressing the issue of 1-octene vs. 1-hexene selectivity.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, California Institute of Technology, 1200 E California Blvd MC 127-72, Pasadena, CA 91125, USA.

The selectivity-determining mechanistic steps of ethylene tetramerization and trimerization are evaluated in light of isotopic labeling experiments. A mechanism based upon a shared chromacycloheptane intermediate rather than the C-C coupling of chromacyclopentanes or Cr speciation into independent trimerization and tetramerization catalysts is consistent with the data, including observed upper limits on 1-octene selectivity.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Centre of Advanced Studies in Chemistry, North-Eastern Hill Unversity, NEHU Permanent Campus, Umshing, Shillong 793 022, India.

Eight Ti(iv) compounds 1-8, of the type [Ti(Ln)2] where Ln is a variously substituted dianionic tridentate acylhydrazone, were synthesized by reacting the appropriate hydrazide with 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde or 2'-hydroxyacetophenone and titanium(iv) tetra(isopropoxide) in a 2 : 2 : 1 molar ratio. The solid-state structures of 1-6 and 7·CH2Cl2 were deduced from the single crystal X-ray diffraction data, which indicated that each L2- ligand is fully deprotonated and coordinated to the Ti(iv) cation via the enolic oxygen, the imino nitrogen and the phenolic oxygen atoms (ONO donor set) in an enol tautomeric form, the metal assuming the distorted octahedral geometry. The structures of pro-ligands H2L3 and H2L5 are also reported. Read More

Dioxygen activation by a dinuclear thiolate-ligated Fe(ii) complex.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Chemistry, National Changhua University of Education, Changhua 50058, Taiwan.

Dioxygen activation by FeII thiolate complexes is relatively rare in biological and chemical systems because the sulfur site is at least as vulnerable as the iron site to oxidative modification. O2 activation by FeII-SR complexes with thiolate bound trans to the O2 binding site generally affords the FeIV[double bond, length as m-dash]O intermediate and oxidized thiolate. On the other hand, O2 activation by Fe(ii)-SR complexes with thiolate bound cis to the O2 binding site generates FeIII-O-FeIII or S-oxygenated complexes. Read More

Departamento de Química Inorgánica, Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de Granada, Av. Fuentenueva S/N, 18071 Granada, Spain.

Eleven new dinuclear and tetranuclear compounds of general formulae [Zn(μ-L)(μ-X)Ln(NO3)2]·nS, [Zn2Dy2(μ3-L')2(μ-sal)2(NO3)(CH3OH)](NO3)·5CH3OH and [Zn2Er2(μ3-L')2(μ-sal)2(CH3OH)2](NO3)2·4CH3OH (X = benzoate, anthracenate, diclofenac, salicylate, 2,6-dihydroxybenzoate; Ln = Dy, Er; S = water, acetonitrile, methanol) were prepared from the N,N'-dimethyl-N,N'-bis(2-hydroxy-3-formyl-5-bromobenzyl)ethylenediamine compartmental ligand (H2L). Complexes 1-6 and 9-11 consist of diphenoxido-carboxylate triply bridged compounds, which differ mainly in the carboxylate bridging ligand. It should be noted that the acidic character of the salicylic acid promotes, in the presence of methanol, the methoxylation of the H2L ligand thereby yielding a hemiacetal H3L', which is able to connect the Ln(iii) ions of two ZnLn dinuclear units forming the Zn2Ln2 tetranuclear complexes 7 and 8.

Dipartimento di Chimica dell'Università degli Studi di Milano, UdR-INSTM, via Golgi 19, I-20133, Milano, Italy. and ISTM-CNR and SmartMatLab dell'Università degli Studi di Milano, via Golgi 19, I-20133, Milano, Italy.

Five new platinum(ii) complexes bearing a cyclometallated 5-π-delocalized donor-1,3-di(2-pyridyl)benzene were prepared and fully characterized. Their second-order nonlinear optical (NLO) properties were determined by the Electric-Field Induced Second Harmonic generation (EFISH) technique, working in DMF solution with an incident wavelength of 1907 nm, whereas the dipole moments were determined by Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations. Remarkably, the platinum(ii) complex with a cyclometallated 5-guaiazulene-CH[double bond, length as m-dash]CH-1,3-di(2-pyridyl)benzene appears as a very good candidate for application in photonics, being characterized by the largest second-order NLO response.

In this paper, a new color tunable long persistent phosphor (Ca, Sr)Ga4O7:Mn2+,Bi3+ has been successfully synthesized via a high-temperature solid-state reaction. Crystal field modulation and band gap engineering controlled by Sr2+ substitution for Ca2+ realizes the color tunable Mn2+ emission from 580 to 556 nm. Guided by the tailoring of traps distribution, the long persistence luminescence (LPL) performance of CaGa4O7:Mn2+ is greatly enhanced to 33 times higher brightness and much longer persistent time through Bi3+ co-doping.

Carbon-coated MoO nanoclusters anchored on RGO sheets as high-performance electrodes for symmetric supercapacitors.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Beijing Key Laboratory of Materials Utilization of Nonmetallic Minerals and Solid Wastes, National Laboratory of Mineral Materials, School of Materials Science and Technology, China University of Geosciences, Beijing, 100083, PR China.

A carbon-coated molybdenum dioxide-reduced graphene oxide (RGO@MoO2/C) composite was synthesized as a high-performance electrode for supercapacitors via a facile hydrothermal method. In this composite, RGO not only provided high conductivity to benefit effective electron transfer, but also offered nucleation sites to load in situ formed MoO2/C nanoparticles. The MoO2@C nanoparticles interconnected with each other forming nanoclusters and were anchored uniformly on RGO sheets instead of self-agglomerating into large aggregates. Read More

3D heterostructured cobalt oxide@layered double hydroxide core-shell networks on nickel foam for high-performance hybrid supercapacitor.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Department of Electrical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hung Hom, Kowloon, Hong Kong. and Hong Kong Branch of National Rail Transit Electrification and Automation Engineering Technology Research Center, Hong Kong.

High performance of an electrode relies largely on scrupulous design of nanoarchitectures and smart hybridization of bespoke active materials. Here, a 3D heterostructured core-shell architecture was fabricated as a supercapacitor electrode, in which Co3O4 nanowire cores were grown on nickel foam prior to the in situ deposition of layered double hydroxide (LDH) nanosheet shells. Owing to the unique configuration and hybridization, the as-fabricated Co3O4@LDH core-shell electrode exhibited high capacities of 818. Read More

Studies on gold-nitrone systems.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Department of Chemistry, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NO-7491 Trondheim, Norway.

A series of novel Au(i)-nitrone complexes with specific catalytic properties were prepared. Furthermore, Au(i)- and Au(iii)-oxadiazole complexes were formed by a novel Au-generated nitrile-nitrone [3 + 2] cycloaddition, and the crystal structures of Au(i)-nitrones as well as the Au(i)- and Au(iii)-oxadiazole complexes were studied (X-ray). A useful one-pot Au(iii)-mediated cycloaddition method was developed for the formation of a number of dihydro-1,2,4-oxadiazoles, involving in situ formation of Au(iii)-oxadiazole complexes.

Na and Pr co-doped orange-emitting CaYAlO phosphors: synthesis, luminescence properties and theoretical calculations.

Dalton Trans 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Key Laboratory of Advanced Technologies of Materials (Ministry of Education), School of Materials Science and Engineering, Southwest Jiaotong University, Chengdu 610031, China.

A series of Na+ and Pr3+ co-doped orange-emitting CaYAl3O7 (CYAO) phosphors were prepared by a conventional high-temperature solid-state reaction method. The crystalline structure, the luminescence properties and the decay times of the as-prepared samples were systematically investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence. Under ultraviolet (UV) light and blue light excitation, the CYAO:Pr3+ phosphors exhibited orange photoluminescence emission and show potential for application in warm white LEDs, and the emission spectra of the as-prepared samples in the near-infrared (NIR) region were detected.

There are substantial knowledge gaps, practice variation, and paucity of controlled trials owing to the relatively small number of patients with critical heart disease. The Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society has recognised this knowledge gap as an area needing a more comprehensive and evidence-based approach to the management of the critically ill child with heart disease. To address this, the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society created a scientific statements and white papers committee. Read More
