Studies on the Magnetic Ground State of a Spin Möbius Strip

Studies on the Magnetic Ground State of a Spin Möbius Strip

Spinning round in circles: In this work the spin ground state of homospin seven-membered rings was studied in detail and compared to even-membered analogues. The odd-membered species were found to be spin Möbius strips (see figure).

Activation of Elemental Sulfur at a Two-Coordinate Platinum(0) Center

Activation of Elemental Sulfur at a Two-Coordinate Platinum(0) Center

Elemental sulfur/oxygen was reacted with cyclic alkyl(amino) carbene stabilized platinum(0) complexes (cAAC)2Pt0 to give (cAAC)2Pt(S2)/(cAAC)2Pt(O2). These complexes were characterized by spectroscopic methods. The sulfur analogues were additionally characterized by X-ray single-crystal diffraction. The bonding and stability of these complexes were studied by theoretical calculation (see figure).

Cubic Siloxanes with Both Si−H and Si−OtBu Groups for Site-Selective Siloxane Bond Formation

Cubic Siloxanes with Both Si−H and Si−OtBu Groups for Site-Selective Siloxane Bond Formation

Selectivity cubed: Cubic siloxanes have been synthesized with Si−H and Si−OtBu groups at specific positions [(tBuO)nH8−nSi8O12; n=1, 2, or 7]. Each functional group can be employed for siloxane bond formation while the other functional group remains intact, suggesting that such bifunctional cage siloxanes are useful for stepwise reactions to design various siloxane-based nanomaterials (see scheme).

Palladium(II)-Catalyzed ortho-Arylation of Aromatic Alcohols with a Readily Attachable and Cleavable Molecular Scaffold

Palladium(II)-Catalyzed ortho-Arylation of Aromatic Alcohols with a Readily Attachable and Cleavable Molecular Scaffold

Catalytic (QuA)rylation: A PdII-catalyzed C−H arylation process of alcohols has been developed. The strategy utilizes a novel quinoline-based hemiacetal scaffold that can direct the selective C−H bond functionalization (see scheme). This reaction provides a useful method to construct biaryl compounds of benzyl alcohols in good to excellent yields. The new molecular scaffold can be readily attached, removed, and recovered.

Enhancement of TbIII–CuII Single-Molecule Magnet Performance through Structural Modification

Enhancement of TbIII–CuII Single-Molecule Magnet Performance through Structural Modification

Mixing up your metals: A new series of {Ln2Cu3(H3L)2Xn} complexes (Ln=Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho and Er), assembled using the ligand 2,2′-(propane-1,3-diyldiimino)bis[2-(hydroxylmethyl)propane-1,3-diol], are reported. When Ln=Tb, Dy, Ho or Er, slow magnetic relaxation in zero applied dc field is seen. Changing the auxiliary ligands (X) leads to the largest reported relaxation barrier, in zero applied DC field, for a Tb/Cu-based single-molecule magnet (see figure).
