    1. Metallocorroles

      A First TDDFT Study of Metallocorrole Electronic Spectra: Copper meso-Triarylcorroles Exhibit Hyper Spectra (pages 1857–1864)

      Abraham Alemayehu, Jeanet Conradie and Abhik Ghosh

      The Soret maxima of copper triarylcorroles, in contrast to silver triarylcorroles, are exquisitely sensitive to substitutions on the meso phenyl groups. Electrochemical data suggest that the difference in substituent effects between the Cu and Ag cases appears to be related to a high-energy LUMO and a much larger HOMO–LUMO gap in the silver case.

      Doubly loaded MOF-5 composite materials Au/ZnO@MOF-5 and Au/TiO2@MOF-5 were derived by gas-phase infiltration of MOF-5. These materials were characterised by different spectroscopic and microscopic techniques and tested in oxidation reactions. It was shown that metal and oxide particles are coexistent in one MOF particle.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The reaction of (2,6-iPr2C6H3O)3TiCl with M(H2BR2) borates not only yielded the hitherto unknown phenolatotitanium dihydridodiorganylborates but also a number of byproducts such as 2,6-iPr2C6H3OBR2, BR3 and H3BTHF and more importantly the ester Ti(OC6H3iPr2)4. The compounds with dicyclohexyldihydrido-9-borato­cyclo­nonane substituents showed C-agostic interactions.

      The enol form of acetone coordinates to the Pt(N2O2) atom in the HH amidato-bridged platinum(III) binuclear complex atfirst, and then the π-coordinated acetone changes to the σ-coordinated acetone to form the acetonyl PtIII binuclear complex.

    8. Pd-NHC Complexes

      The effects of bulky substituents, electron-donating substituents, and ancillary allyl ligands, on structure and catalytic activity of mono- and bis(benzimidazolin-2-ylidene) complexes of Pd, were investigated. In the bis(NHC) systems, steric effects within the functionalised NHCs encourage formation of some unusual coordination geometries.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Density functional calculations on the Co2(CO)6(SR)2 compounds (R = CH3, CF3) predict both open and butterfly structure types of similar energies. The open structures have ca. 3.4 Å Co···Co distances indicating a lack of direct metal-metal bonding. The butterfly structures have direct Co–Co bonds of lengths ca. 2.5 Å forming the “body” of the butterfly.

      Two ruthenium(II)–porphyrin complexes were synthesized and characterized. Both complexes show good antioxidant activity, which correlates with their antitumor activity.The generation of reactive oxygenspecies (ROS) in HepG2 cells treated with complex 1 decreased with increasing complex concentration. Drugs such as these could induce apoptosis in HepG2 cells by antioxidation.
