RESUMO

We report on the synthesis, structure and reactivity of [{NCNMe4}Sb(C6H2-tBu2-3,5-O-4)] (3), an organoantimony(III)-oxyaryl species obtained upon Csp2-H bond activation in a phenolate ligand and stabilised by the monoanionic pincer {NCNMe4}-. The mechanism leading to the formation of 3 is highly sensitive to steric considerations. It was probed experimentally and by DFT calculations, and a number of intermediates and related complexes were identified. All data agree with successive heterolytic bond cleaving and bond forming processes involving charged species, rather than a pathway involving free radicals as previously exemplified with congeneric bismuth species. The nucleophilic behaviour of the oxyaryl ligand in 3, a complex that features both zwitterionic and quinoidal attributes, was illustrated in derivatisation reactions. In particular, insertion of CS2 in the Sb-Coxyaryl bond generates [{NCNMe4}Sb(S2C-C6H2-tBu2-3,5-O-4)].

RESUMO

Pyrazinacenes are linearly fused heteroaromatic rings, with N atoms replacing all apical CH moieties. Component rings may exist in a reduced state, having NH groups instead of N, causing cross-conjugation. These compounds have interesting optical and electronic properties, including strong fluorescence in the near-infrared region and photocatalytic properties, leading to diverse possible applications in bio-imaging and organic synthesis, as well as obvious molecular electronic uses. In this study, we investigated the behavior of seven-ring pyrazinacene 2,3,11,12-tetraphenyl-7,16-dihydro-1,4,5,6,7,8,9,12,13,14,15,16,17,18-tetradecaazaheptacene (Ph4H2N14HEPT), with an emphasis on protic processes, including oxidation, tautomerism, deprotonation, and protonation, and the species resulting from those processes. We used computational methods to optimize the structures of the different species and generate/compare molecular orbital structures. The aromaticity of the species generated by the different processes was assessed using the nucleus-independent chemical shifts, and trends in the values were associated with the different transformations of the pyrazinacene core. The computational data were compared with experimental data obtained from synthetic samples of the molecule tBu8Ph4H2N14HEPT.

RESUMO

The attempted synthesis of [{Carb}BaPPh2] (1) showed this barium-phosphide and its thf adducts, 1·thf and 1·(thf)2, to be unstable in solution. Our strategy to circumvent the fragility of these compounds involved the use of phosphinoboranes HPPh2·BH3 and HPPh2·B(C6F5)3 instead of HPPh2. This allowed for the synthesis of [{Carb}Ae{PPh2·BH3}] (Ae = Ba, 2; Ca, 3), [{Carb}Ca{(H3B)2PPh2}·(thf)] (4), [{Carb}Ba{PPh2·B(C6F5)3}] (5), [{Carb}Ba{O(B(C6F5)3)CH2CH2CH2CH2PPh2}·thf] (6), [Ba{O(B(C6F5)3)CH2CH2CH2CH2PPh2}2·(thf)1.5] (7) and [Ba{PPh2·B(C6F5)3}2·(thp)2] (8) that were characterised by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy (thp = tetrahydropyran). The molecular structures of 4, 6 and 8 were validated by X-ray diffraction crystallography, which revealed the presence of Ba⋯F stabilizing interactions (ca. 9 kcal mol-1) in the fluorine-containing compounds. Compounds 6 and 7 were obtained upon ring-opening of thf by their respective precursors, 5 and the in situ prepared [Ba{PPh2·B(C6F5)3}2]n. By contrast, thp does not undergo ring-opening under the same conditions but affords clean formation of 8. DFT analysis did not highlight any specific weakness of the Ba-P bond in 1·(thf)2. The instability of this compound is instead thought to stem from the high energy of its HOMO, which contains the non-conjugated P lone pair and features significant nucleophilic reactivity.

RESUMO

This study investigates the effects of metal addition and doping of a 2-electron silver superatom, [Ag10{S2P(OiPr)2}8] (Ag10). When Ag+ is added to Ag10 in THF solution, [Ag11{S2P(OiPr)2}8(OTf)] (Ag11) is rapidly formed almost quantitatively. When the same method is used with Cu+, a mixture of alloys, [CuxAg11-x{S2P(OiPr)2}8]+ (x = 1-3, CuxAg11-x), is obtained. In contrast, introducing Au+ to Ag10 leads to decomposition. The structural and compositional analysis of Ag11 was characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction (SCXRD), ESI-MS, NMR spectroscopy, and DFT calculations. While no crystal structure was obtained for CuxAg11-x, DFT calculations provide insights into potential sites for copper location. The absorption spectrum exhibits a notable blue shift in the low-energy band after copper doping, contrasting with that of the slight shift observed in 8-electron Cu-doped Ag nanoclusters. Ag11 and CuxAg11-x are strongly emissive at room temperature, and solvatochromism across different organic solvents is highlighted. This study underscores the profound influence of metal addition and doping on the structural and optical properties of silver nanoclusters, providing important contributions to understanding the nanoclusters and their photophysical behaviors.

RESUMO

Poorly selective mixed-metal cluster synthesis and separation yield reaction solutions of inseparable intermetalloid cluster mixtures, which are often discarded. High-resolution mass spectrometry, however, can provide precise compositional data of such product mixtures. Structure assignments can be achieved by advanced computational screening and consideration of the complete structural space. Here, we experimentally verify structure and composition of a whole cluster ensemble by combining a set of spectroscopic techniques. Our study case are the very similar nickel/gallium clusters of M12, M13 and M14 core composition Ni6+xGa6+y (x + y ≤ 2). The rationalization of structure, bonding and reactivity is built upon the organometallic superatom cluster [Ni6Ga6](Cp*)6 = [Ga6](NiCp*)6 (1; Cp* = C5Me5). The structural conclusions are validated by reactivity tests using carbon monoxide, which selectively binds to Ni sites, whereas (triisopropylsilyl)acetylene selectively binds to Ga sites.

RESUMO

Key strategies in cluster synthesis include the use of modulating agents (e.g., coordinating additives). We studied the influence of various phosphines exhibiting different steric and electronic properties on the reduction of the Au(I) precursor to Au(0) clusters. We report a synthesis of the bimetallic clusters [Au6(AlCp*)6] = [Au6Al6](Cp*)6 (1) and [HAu7(AlCp*)6] = [HAu7Al6](Cp*)6 (2) (Cp* = pentamethylcyclopentadiene) using Au(I) precursors and AlCp*. The cluster [Au2(AlCp*)5] = [Au2Al5](Cp*)5 (3) was isolated and identified as an intermediate species in the reactions to 1 and 2. The processes of cluster growth and degradation were investigated by in situ 1H NMR and LIFDI-MS techniques. The structures of 1 and 2 were established by DFT geometry optimization. These octahedral clusters can both be described as closed-shell 18-electron superatoms.

RESUMO

The first hydride-doped Pd/Ag superatoms stabilized by selenolates are reported: [PdHAg19(dsep)12] [dsep = Se2P(OiPr)2] 1 and [PdHAg20(dsep)12]+ 2. 1 was derived from the targeted transformation of [PdHAg19(dtp)12] [dtp = S2P(OiPr)2] by ligand exchange, whereas 2 was obtained from the addition of trifluoroacetic acid to 1, resulting in a symmetric redistribution of the capping silver atoms. The transformations are all achieved while retaining an 8-electron superatomic configuration. VT-NMR attests to the good stability of the NCs in solution, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction reveals the crucial role that the interstitial hydride plays in directing the position of the capping silver atoms. The total structures are reported alongside their electronic and optical properties. 1 and 2 are phosphorescent with a lifetime of 73 and 84 µs at 77 K, respectively. The first antibacterial activity data for superatomic bimetallic Pd/Ag nanoclusters are also reported.

RESUMO

A structurally precise hydride-containing Pt-doped Cu-rich nanocluster [PtH2 Cu14 {S2 P(Oi Pr)2 }6 (CCPh)6 ] (1) has been synthesized. It consists of a bicapped icosahedral Cu14 cage that encapsulates a linear PtH2 unit. Upon the addition of two equivalents of CF3 COOH to 1, two hydrido clusters are isolated. These clusters are [PtHCu11 {S2 P(Oi Pr)2 }6 (CCPh)4 ] (2), which is a vertex-missing Cu11 cuboctahedron encaging a PtH moiety, and [PtH2 Cu11 {S2 P(Oi Pr)2 }6 (CCPh)3 ] (3), a distorted 3,3,4,4,4-pentacapped trigonal prismatic Cu11 cage enclosing a PtH2 unit. The electronic structure of 2, analyzed by Density Functional Theory, is a 2e superatom. The electrocatalytic activities of 1-3 for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) were compared. Notably, Cluster 2 exhibited an exceptionally excellent HER activity within metal nanoclusters, with an onset potential of -0.03 V (at 10 mA cm-2 ), a Tafel slope of 39 mV dec-1 , and consistent HER activity throughout 3000 cycles in 0.5 M H2 SO4 . Our study suggests that the accessible central Pt site plays a crucial role in the remarkable HER activity and may provide valuable insights for establishing correlations between catalyst structure and HER activity.

RESUMO

Three hitherto unknown eight-electron rhodium/silver alloy nanoclusters, [RhAg21{S2P(OnPr)2}12] (1), [RhHAg20{S2P(OnPr)2}12] (2), and [RhH2Ag19{S2P(OnPr)2}12] (3), have been isolated and fully characterized. Cluster 1 contains a regular Rh@Ag12 icosahedral core, whereas 2 and 3 exhibit distorted RhH@Ag12 and RhH2@Ag12 icosahedral cores. The single-crystal neutron structure of 2 located the encapsulated hydride at the center of an enlarged RhAg3 tetrahedron. A similar position was found by neutron diffraction for one of the hydrides in 3, whereas the other hydride is trigonally coordinated to Rh and an elongated Ag-Ag edge. The solid-state structures of 1-3 possess C1 symmetry due to the asymmetric arrangement of the surrounding capping Ag atoms. Our investigation shows that the insertion of one hydride dopant provokes the elimination of one capping silver atom on the cluster surface, resulting in the general formula [RhHx@Ag21-x{S2P(OnPr)2}12] (x = 0-2), which maintains the same number of cluster electrons as well as neutral charge. Clusters 1-3 exhibit an intense emission band in the NIR region. Contrarily to their PdAg21 and PdHAg20 relatives, the 4d orbitals of the encapsulated heterometal are somewhat involved in the optical processes.

RESUMO

The bimetallic, decanuclear Ni3 Ga7 -cluster of the formula [Ni3 (GaTMP)3 (µ2 -GaTMP)3 (µ3 -GaTMP)] (1, TMP=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyl) reacts reversibly with dihydrogen under the formation of a series of (poly-)hydride clusters 2. Low-temperature 2D NMR experiments at -80 °C show that 2 consist of a mixture of a di- (2Di ), tetra- (2Tetra ) and hexahydride species (2Hexa ). The structures of 2Di and 2Tetra are assessed by a combination of 2D NMR spectroscopy and DFT calculations. The cooperation of both metals is essential for the high hydrogen uptake of the cluster. Polyhydrides 2 are catalytically active in the semihydrogenation of 4-octyne to 4-octene with good selectivity. The example is the first of its kind and conceptually relates properties of molecular, atom-precise transition metal/main group metal clusters to the respective solid-state phase in catalysis.

RESUMO

A new dicationic cluster, [Cu21S2{S2CNnBu2}9(C2Ph)6]2+, where the Cu21S2 kernel consists of two S@Cu12 cuboctahedra sharing a triangular Cu3 face is reported. Its waist part is bridged by three dithiocarbamate ligands, each in a hexaconnective, hexametallic (µ3, µ3) coordination pattern, an unprecedented feature in Cu nanocluster chemistry.

RESUMO

Late dinuclear transition-metal (especially group 10 and 11) homoleptic carbonyl complexes are elusive species and have so far not been isolated. A typical example is the 30-electron species [Ni2(CO)5], the structure and bonding of which is still debated. We show that, by using the AlCp* ligand (isolobal to CO), it is possible to isolate and fully characterize [Ni2(AlCp*)5] (1), which inspired us to revisit by DFT calculations, the bonding situation within [Ni2L5] (L = CO, AlCp*) and other isoelectronic species. The short Ni-Ni X-ray distance in 1 (2.270 Å) should not be attributed to the existence of a typical localized triple-bond between the metals, but rather to a strong through-bond interaction involving the three bridging ligands via their donating lone pairs and accepting π* orbitals. In contrast, in the isostructural 32-electron [Au2(AlCp*)5] (2) cluster an orbital with M-M antibonding and Al...Al bonding character is occupied, which is in accordance with the particularly long Au-Au distance (3.856 Å) and rather short Al...Al contacts between the bridging ligands (2.843 Å). This work shows that, unlike late transition-metal [M2(CO)x] species, stable [M2(AlCp*)x] complexes can be isolated, owing to the subtle differences between CO and AlCp*. We propose a similar approach for rationalizing the bonding in the emblematic 34 electron species [Fe2(CO)9].

RESUMO

The first series of monocarboxylate-protected superatomic silver nanoclusters was synthesized and fully characterized by X-ray diffraction, fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Specifically, compounds [Ag16(L)8(9-AnCO2)12]2+ (L = Ph3P (I), (4-ClPh)3P (II), (2-furyl)3P (III), and Ph3As (IV)) were prepared by a solvent-thermal method under alkaline conditions. These clusters exhibit a similar unprecedented structure containing a [Ag8@Ag8]6+ metal kernel, of which the 2-electron superatomic [Ag8]6+ inner core shows a flattened and puckered hexagonal bipyramid of S6 symmetry. Density functional theory calculations provide a rationalization of the structure and stability of these 2-electron superatoms. Results indicate that the 2 superatomic electrons occupy a superatomic molecular orbital 1S that has a substantial localization on the top and bottom vertices of the bipyramid. The π systems of the anthracenyl groups, as well as the 1S HOMO, are significantly involved in the optical and photothermal behavior of the clusters. The four characterized nanoclusters show high photothermal conversion performance in sunlight. These results show that the unprecedented use of mono-carboxylates in the stabilization of Ag nanoclusters is possible, opening the door for the introduction of various functional groups on their cluster surface.

RESUMO

The first 8-electron Pd/Ag superatomic alloys with an interstitial hydride [PdHAg19 (dtp)12 ] (dtp=S2 P(Oi Pr)2 - ) 1 and [PdHAg20 (dtp)12 ]+ 2 are reported. The targeted addition of a single Ag atom to 1 is achieved by the reaction of one equivalent of trifluoroacetic acid, resulting in the formation of 2 in 55 % yield. Further modification of the shell results in the formation of [PdAg21 (dtp)12 ]+ 3 via an internal redox reaction, with the system retaining an 8-electron superatomic configuration. The interstitial hydride in 1 and 2 contributes its 1s1 electron to the superatomic electron count and occupies a PdAg3 tetrahedron. The distributions of isomers corresponding to different dispositions of the outer capping Ag atoms are investigated by multinuclear VT NMR spectroscopy. The emissive state of 3 has a lifetime of 200 µs (λex =448; λem =842), while 1 and 2 are non-emissive. The catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol is demonstrated with 1-3 at room temperature.

RESUMO

Heteroleptic 8-electron silver-rich alloy nanoclusters, [Au@Au4Ag12(dtp)7(PPh3)4]2+ (1) and [Pt@Au4Ag11(dtp)7(PPh3)4] (2), were successfully synthesized via a galvanic replacement reaction of 1,1-dithiolate-protected M@Ag20 (M = Au and Pt) nanoclusters with Au(I)-phosphine salts, leading to the alteration of the cluster nuclearity and geometry of shell skeletons but retaining the same 8-electron count.

RESUMO

The iconic W@Au12 icosahedral bare cluster reaches the favorable closed-shell superatomic electron configuration 1S2 1P6 1D10, making it an 18-cluster electron (18-ce) superatom. Here, we pursue the evaluation of a ligand-protected counterpart based on the construction of a fully phosphine-protected [W@Au12(dppm)6] cluster strongly related to the characterized [Au13(dppm)6]5+ homometallic counterpart. The later cluster has the same total number of valence electrons as the former but is considered an 8-ce superatom with 1S2 1P6 configuration. The fundamental differences between 8- and 18-ce species are investigated. The character of the frontier orbitals varies from 1P/1D in the 8-ce case to a 1D/ligand for 18-ce species, enabling an efficient charge transfer toward the ligands upon irradiation, being interesting for electron injection in optoelectronic devices and black absorbers applications. Excited-state properties are also revisited, showing different geometrical and electronic structure variations between 8- and 18-ce species. Moreover, the continuum between the 8- and 18-ce limits has been explored by varying the nature of the encapsulated dopant between group 6 and group 11. The transition between the 8- and 18-ce counts can be formally situated between Pt (8-ce) and Ir (18-ce). Thus, 18-ce derivatives obtained as doped counterparts of homometallic gold clusters can introduce useful alternatives to achieve different properties in related structural motifs, which can be further explored owing to their extension of the well-established versatility of current gold nanoclusters.

RESUMO

A two-electron silver superatom, [Ag6{S2P(OiPr)2}4(dppm)2] (1), was synthesized by adding dppm (bis(diphenylphosphino)methane) into [Ag20{S2P(OiPr)2}12] (8e). It was characterized by single-crystal crystallography, multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry, density functional theory (DFT), and time-dependent DFT calculations. The added dppm ligands, which carry out the nanocluster-to-nanocluster transformation, act as a chemical scissor to prune the nanocluster geometrically from an icosahedron-based Ag20 nanocluster (NC) to an octahedral Ag6 NC and electronically from eight-electron to two-electron. Eventually, dppm was involved in the protective shell to form a new heteroleptic NC. The temperature-dependent NMR spectroscopy confirms its fluxional behavior, showing the fast atomic movement at ambient temperature. Compound 1 exhibits a bright yellow emission under UV irradiation at ambient temperature with a quantum yield of 16.3%. This work demonstrates a new methodology to achieve nanocluster-to-nanocluster transformation via stepwise synthesis.

RESUMO

The first hydride-containing 2-electron palladium/copper alloys, [PdHCu11 {S2 P(Oi Pr)2 }6 (C≡CPh)4 ] (PdHCu11 ) and [PdHCu12 {S2 P(Oi Pr)2 }5 {S2 PO(Oi Pr)} (C≡CPh)4 ] (PdHCu12 ), are synthesized from the reaction of [PdH2 Cu14 {S2 P(Oi Pr)2 }6 (C≡CPh)6 ] (PdH2 Cu14 ) with trifluoroacetic acid (TFA). X-ray diffraction reveals that the PdHCu11 and PdHCu12 kernels consist of a central PdH unit encapsulated within a vertex-missing Cu11 cuboctahedron and complete Cu12 cuboctahedron, respectively. DFT calculations indicate that both PdHCu11 and PdHCu12 can be considered as axially-distorted 2-electron superatoms. PdHCu11 shows excellent HER activity, unprecedented within metal nanoclusters, with an onset potential of -0.05 V (at 10 mA cm-2 ), a Tafel slope of 40 mV dec-1 , and consistent HER activity during 1000 cycles in 0.5 M H2 SO4 . Our study suggests that the accessible central Pd site is the key to HER activity and may provide guidelines for correlating catalyst structures and HER activity.

RESUMO

A neutral polyhydrido copper cluster, [Cu27H15{S2CNnBu2}12] (abbreviated as [Cu27H15]), was prepared by the reaction of dithiocarbamates (dtc), Cu(I) salts and NaBH4. The isolated cluster provides insights into core engineering, demonstrating its novel ability to reversibly add or remove one copper atom from the cluster core. Single-crystal X-ray analysis reveals that the new core-shell structure exhibits a Cu24 rhombicuboctahedral outer cage and an inner Cu3 triangular kernel. The two core-shell clusters, [Cu27H15{S2CNnBu2}12] and previously published [Cu28H15(S2CNnBu2)12]+ (abbreviated as [Cu28H15]+), are only differentiated by one copper atom in their inner core. Importantly, we demonstrate core engineering with the controllable reversible transition between an irregular Cu4 tetrahedron and a Cu3 triangle, whilst maintaining their outer Cu24 shell intact. The 15 hydride atoms in [Cu27H15], coordinated in three different modes, are co-incident with the hydride positions in [Cu28H15]+. The degradation of [Cu27H15] in solution or the addition of one eq. of Cu(I) ions leads to the conversion of [Cu27H15] into [Cu28H15]+, while the reverse transformation can be achieved by the addition of either formic acid or a reducing agent to [Cu28H15]+. A dicationic species was observed in the ESI mass spectrum, and the composition is formulated as [Cu56H30(S2CNnBu2)24]2+, a dimer of [Cu27H15(S2CNnBu2)12 + Cu+]22+. The dimeric species was further explored by DFT calculations, suggesting that the lowest energy structure consists of a [Cu28H15]+ and a [Cu27H15] cluster connected through one Cu+ atom bridge. As a result, [Cu27H15] is considered an intermediate species in the formation of the more stable [Cu28H15]+ nanoball.

RESUMO

A series of phosphorescent platinum(II) complexes containing various phenyldiazine-type bidentate N^C ligands have been successfully synthesized and characterized. Structural modifications have been made to bidentate cyclometalating ligands regarding the nature of the diazine ring (pyrimidine, pyrazine and quinazoline), the substituent groups at the C4 position of the pyrimidine ring (OCH3, CF3) and the EDGs at the para position of the Pt atom (OCH3, Ph, NPh2, carbazol). In addition, the electronic properties of the azaheterocyclic ancillary ligand have been modulated in this series of complexes (pyridine, 4-methoxy-pyridine or pyrimidine). X-ray diffraction studies have been performed on three complexes, revealing Pt(II) ions in a distorted square-planar geometrical environment with no Pt(II)⋯Pt(II) interactions but with moderate π-π interactions in the solid-state structure. Electrochemical and computational studies suggest a ligand-centered reduction on the diazine ligands with, in some cases, additional contribution from the azaheterocyclic ancillary ligand, whereas oxidation occurs on the Pt-phenyl ring substituent moieties. All complexes exhibit phosphorescence emission ranging from green to red/near-infrared, both in solution and in the solid state. Complexes bearing a 2-(3-methoxyphenyl)pyrimidine ligand show the best PLQY of the series, up to 52% in a CH2Cl2 solution and 20% in the solid state. Furthermore, the solid state PLQY of one of the near-infrared emitting phenylquinazoline complex has been found to be 6%.
