      We report the synthesis, structure, characterisation and environmental exposure of CdSeS quantum dots (QDs) and CdSeS/ZnS core-shell QDs to microwave radiation. After ZnS capping, the core/shell structured CdSeS/ZnS QDs exhibit higher luminescence and photostabilily than that of CdSeS core QD. The CdSeS/ZnS QDs were successfully used to image live Hela cells, showing promise for use in biological studies.

      New π-extended tetrathiafulvalenes (exTTFs) 4a, 4b, 5a, and 5b have been synthesized and characterized. The coordination ability of both versatile ligands 5a and 5b is demonstrated by the formation of tricarbonylrhenium(I) complexes. Their electrochemical and spectroscopic properties have also been studied.

    4. W-Shaped Heteropentadienide Anions

      Article first published online: 11 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201101360

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A series of anions with general formula (R2C=P)2Pn was studied theoretically by using DFT and RI-MP2 methods. Sharpened central PXP bond angles were predicted for heavier homologues (Pn = P, As, Sb), and π-withdrawing R substituents were referred to a special form of homoaromaticity. The X-ray structure of the 2,4-diphospha-3-arsapentadienyl anion agrees well with the proposed model.

      Well-defined 3D flowerlike BiOBr nanostructures have been successfully synthesized by a facile and fast microwave irradiation method by using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide as both the bromide source and soft template. The as-prepared flowerlike BiOBr nanostructures possess a large surface area and exhibit an excellent removal capacity and fast adsorption rate for CrVI ions in a wide pH range.

      Experimental (equilibrium and kinetic) and computational (DFT and TD-DFT) studies on the behaviour of Cu2+–tren complexes in aqueous solution indicate that, although their chemistry is dominated by the trigonal bipyramidal geometry, square pyramidal species can play a significant role under certain conditions.

      The europium germanate NaEu3(GeO4)2(OH)2 was prepared under mild hydrothermal conditions. In situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction analysis and photoluminescence spectroscopic measurement in a diamond anvil cell under high pressure were performed. The result showed that the structure of this compound is stable under high pressure and emits red light steadily up to a pressure of about 20 GPa.

      Isothermal sections of the V–Fe–Sb ternary system were constructed. Ternary samples with equiatomic composition were crystallized in MgAgAs and Ni2In structures at 870 and 1070 K, respectively. Diverse analyses could not confirm a polymorph phase transition of VFeSb antimonide. VFeSb at 1070 K is part of a VyFe2–xSb solid solution characterized by different ranges at the investigated temperatures.
