RESUMO

A dual-emissive tris-heteroleptic ruthenium complex is designed, synthesized and applied for the ratiometric photoluminescent detection of amyloid-ß (Aß) aggregation in both steady and transient states. The Aß aggregation is supported by transmission electron microscopy and confocal laser scanning microscopy analysis. In addition, molecular docking calculations have been performed to gain insights into the interaction mode between the ruthenium complex and Aß fibrils.

RESUMO

Two star-shaped multi-triphenylamine derivatives 1 and 2 were prepared, where 2 has an additional phenyl unit between a pyrene core and surrounding triphenylamine units. The oxidative electropolymerization of 1 and 2 occurred smoothly to give thin films of polymers P1 and P2. The electrochemistry and spectroelectrochemistry of P1 and P2 were examined, showing two-step absorption spectral changes in the near-infrared region. The electrochromic properties, including contrast ratio, response time, and cyclic stability of P1 and P2 were investigated and compared. Thin film of P2 displays slightly better electrochromic performance than P1, with a contrast ratio of 45% at 1475 nm being achieved.

RESUMO

A cyclometalated ruthenium sensitizer 3 containing a triphenylamine unit was synthesized and immobilized on a nanocrystalline TiO2 surface. By using oxidative electrochemical deposition, a covalent layer of a related cyclometalated ruthenium complex 2 was coupled to the top of dye 3. Electrochemical studies suggested that complex 2 was immobilized on the TiO2/3 film surface by a tetraphenylbenzidine linker to form a dimer-like structure. The immobilization of 3 and 2 was further supported by absorption spectral analysis. The resulting electrodeposited TiO2/(3+2) film displays significantly enhanced sensitizer stabilization toward basic aqueous NaOH solution with respect to the original TiO2/3 film. The dye-sensitized solar cells with the TiO2/(3+2) photoanode display a power conversion efficiency of 4.4%, which is slightly inferior to that with the TiO2/3 film (5.1%) under the same measurement conditions.

RESUMO

Sb-Doped nanocrystalline SnO2 (SnO2:Sb) thin films functionalized with cyclometalated ruthenium complexes 1 or 2 on FTO conductive glasses have been prepared and characterized. These complexes contain a redox-active amine unit separated from the ruthenium ion by a phenyl or biphenyl linker, respectively, to modify the absorption wavelengths at different redox states. Near-infrared electrochromism of both films has been examined by oxidative spectroelectrochemical measurements and double-potential-step chronoamperometry. A contrast ratio (ΔT%) of 33% at 1070 nm and 63% at 696 nm has been achieved for the SnO2:Sb/1 film in two stepwise oxidation processes, respectively. The other film with complex 2 shows two-step electrochromism at 1310 and 806 nm with ΔT% of 36% and 76%, respectively. The response time of electrochromic switching is around a few seconds. Taking advantage of the good contrast ratio, the rapid response, and the long retention time of each oxidation state, these films have been successfully used to demonstrate surface-confined flip-flop memory functions with a high ON/OFF ratio.

RESUMO

A pyrene-cored molecular quadripod 1,3,6,8-tetra(di( p-pyrid-4-ylphenyl)amino)pyrene (TAPyr) is presented as a noncovalent interfacial coupling reagent for the immobilization of coordination assemblies. This bench-stable molecule is readily available and has a quadripod shape with four pyridine legs and four pyridine handles on the top exterior. By a simple and short dipping procedure under ambient conditions, TAPyr is firmly immobilized on electrode surfaces in an upright fashion as probed by electrochemical, absorption spectral, atomic force microscopy, and scanning tunneling microscopy analysis. Using Pd(PhCN)2Cl2 as a metallolinker, 4-ferrocenylpyridine, a pyridine-terminated monoruthenium complex 1, and a diruthenium complex 2 with two pyridine ends have been grafted onto the ITO/TAPyr surface. The obtained thin films exhibit good electrochemical stability that is comparable or superior to those prepared by the state-of-the-art Si-O-Sn covalent functionalization. Appealing electrochromism is demonstrated with the thin films of ruthenium complexes on ITO.

RESUMO

A readily available small molecular hole-transporting material (HTM), OMe-TATPyr, was synthesized and tested in perovskite solar cells (PSCs). OMe-TATPyr is a two-dimensional π-conjugated molecule with a pyrene core and four phenyl-thiophene bridged triarylamine groups. It can be readily synthesized in gram scale with a low lab cost of around US$ 50 g-1 . The incorporation of the phenyl-thiophene units in OMe-TATPyr are beneficial for not only carrier transportation through improved charge delocalization and intermolecular stacking, but also potential trap passivation via Pb-S interaction as supported by depth-profiling XPS, photoluminescence, and electrochemical impedance analysis. As a result, an impressive best power conversion efficiency (PCE) of up to 20.6 % and an average PCE of 20.0 % with good stability has been achieved for mixed-cation PSCs with OMe-TATPyr with an area of 0.09 cm2 . A device with an area of 1.08 cm2 based on OMe-TATPyr demonstrates a PCE of 17.3 %.

RESUMO

Six terphenyl-bridged cyclometalated ruthenium-amine conjugated complexes 4(PF6)-9(PF6) were synthesized and studied. Three different substituents, methoxy, methyl, and chloro, were used to vary the electronic nature of the amine unit, and two terminal ligands 2,2':6',2″-terpyridine (tpy) and trimethyl-4,4',4″-tricarboxylate-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine (Me3tctpy) were used to tune the electronic nature of the ruthenium component. All complexes, except 7(PF6) with the methoxy substituent and Me3tctpy ligand, display two well-separated redox waves in the potential range of +0.5 to +1.1 V versus Ag/AgCl. The regular electrochemical changes of these complexes help to establish the oxidation order of ruthenium and amine and hence of the direction of the electron transfer in odd-electron state. The degree of electronic coupling was estimated by analyzing the donor-to-acceptor charge transfer band in the near-infrared region obtained by oxidative spectroelectrochemical measurements. Electron paramagnetic resonance analyses and density functional theory calculations were performed on the one-electron oxidized forms to obtain information on the spin distribution of these complexes.

RESUMO

Four bridged cyclometalated diruthenium systems are highlighted in this Frontier article, including strongly-coupled diruthenium complexes with a short phen-1,4-diyl or a planar pyren-2,7-diyl bridge, redox asymmetric diruthenium complexes characterized by different terminal ligands on the two ends, diruthenium complexes with a urea bridge that allows modulating the degree of electronic coupling, and those with a redox-active amine bridge with varying electronic structures. These complexes posess redox couples with low potentials and intense intervalence charge transfer absorptions in the near-infrared region in the one-electron-oxidized mixed-valent state. They are appealing not only for providing a platform for fundamental electron transfer studies but also as molecular materials with multi-stage redox switching properties.

RESUMO

The ITO/active material/Au sandwiched devices of a cobalt(ii) bis-terpyridine complex decorated with two triphenylamine motifs display appealing flash-type resistive switching with a large ON/OFF ratio (>103) and low operating voltages (<±3 V). In contrast, devices with the triphenylamine-appended terpyridine ligand show WORM-type memory behaviour.

RESUMO

Two cyclometalated ruthenium complexes 2 and 4 containing a redox-active amine substituent and three carboxylic acid groups were synthesized, where the ruthenium ion and the amine site were separated by a phenyl or biphenyl bridge for 2 and 4, respectively. Nanocrystalline TiO2 films on fluorine doped SnO2 (FTO)/glass substrates anchored with 2 or 4 were prepared. These films display two consecutive anodic waves in the potential region between +0.1 and +1.0 V vs Ag/AgCl. Among four organic solvents examined, the FTO/TiO2/2 film displays the best cyclic electrochemical stability in ClCH2CH2Cl. Both films exhibit promising two-step electrochromism in the near infrared region. A contrast ratio (ΔT%) of 42% at 1000 nm and 40% at 680 nm was achieved for the FTO/TiO2/2 film in the single- and double-oxidation process, respectively. In contrast, the FTO/TiO2/4 film shows electrochromism at 1300 nm (ΔT% = 58%) and 780 nm (ΔT% = 59%) in the single- and double-oxidation process, respectively. The coloration efficiency of these processes varies in a range of 150-270 cm2/C. These films are potentially useful as variable optical attenuators for telecommunications.

RESUMO

A star-shaped cyclometalated triruthenium complex 2(PF6)n (n = 3 and 4) with a triarylamine core was synthesized, which functions as a molecular switch with five well-separated redox states in both solution and film states. The single-crystal X-ray structure of 2(PF6)3 is presented. This complex displays four consecutive one-electron redox waves at +0.082, +0.31, +0.74, and +1.07 V vs Ag/AgCl. In each redox state, it shows significantly different NIR absorptions with λmax of 1590 nm for 24+, 1400 nm for 25+, 1060 nm for 26+, and 740 nm for 27+, respectively. Complex 24+ shows a single-line EPR signal at g = 2.060, while other redox states are all EPR inactive. The spin density distributions and NIR absorptions in different redox states were rationalized by DFT and TDDFT calculations. A vinyl-substituted triruthenium analogous 3(PF6)4 was prepared, which was successfully polymerized on ITO glass electrode surfaces by reductive electropolymerization. The obtained poly-3n+/ITO film was characterized by FTIR, AFM, and SEM analysis. It shows four well-defined redox couples and reversible multistate NIR electrochromism. In particular, a contrast ratio (ΔT%) up to 63% was achieved at the optic telecommunication wavelength (1550 nm).

RESUMO

In response to the application of low electrochemical potentials, ruthenium-tris(bipyridine) complexes decorated with multiple electron-rich and redox-active amine substituents show reversible absorption and emission spectral changes in the deep-red to NIR region. The number of amine substituents strongly affects the electrochemical and spectroscopic properties and the spin density distributions of the complex in the one-electron-oxidized state.

RESUMO

A series of cyclometalated diruthenium complexes with a redox-active amine bridge were synthesized. Depending on the terminal ligands of the ruthenium components and the substituent on the amine unit, the one-electron-oxidized state can be either in the form of a weakly or strongly coupled mixed-valence diruthenium complex, a fully charge-delocalized three-center system, or a bridge-biased electrophore. This transition among different electronic forms was supported by electrochemistry, near-infrared absorption, electron paramagnetic resonance, and density functional theory analysis.

RESUMO

Three dibenzo[a,e]pentalene derivatives containing two redox-active amine substituents have been prepared. The degree of amine-amine electronic coupling through the dibenzo[a,e]pentalene bridge greatly depends on the substitution positions. Three monoamine compounds have been prepared for comparison studies. The experimental data and analysis were corroborated by time-dependent density functional theory results of mixed-valent compounds.

RESUMO

A series of bis-tridentate cyclometalated osmium complexes with a redox-active triarylamine substituent have been prepared, where the amine substituent is separated from the osmium ion by a p-oligophenylene wire of various lengths. X-ray crystallographic data of complexes 3(PF6) and 4(PF6) with three or four repeating phenyl units between the osmium ion and the amine substituent are presented. These complexes show two consecutive anodic redox couples between +0.1 and +0.9 V vs Ag/AgCl, with the potential splitting in the range of 300-390 mV. A combined experimental and theoretical study suggests that, in the one-electron-oxidized state, the odd electron is delocalized for short congeners and localized on the osmium component for long congeners. The electronic coupling parameter (Vab) was estimated by the Marcus-Hush analysis. The distance dependence plot of ln(Vab) versus the osmium-amine geometrical distance (Rab) gives a negative linear relationship with a decay slope of -0.19 Å(-1), which is slightly steeper with respect to the previously reported ruthenium-amine series with the same molecular wire. DFT calculations with the long-range-corrected UCAM-B3LYP functional gave more reasonable results for the osmium complexes with respect to those with UB3LYP.

RESUMO

Five osmium complexes with redox-active amine substituents, [Os(ttpy)(Ntpy)](PF6)2 (1(PF6)2), [Os(Ntpy)2](PF6)2 (2(PF6)2), [Os(ttpy)(NPhtpy)](PF6)2 (3(PF6)2), [Os(Ntpy)(NPhtpy)](PF6)2 (4(PF6)2), and [Os(NPhtpy)2](PF6)2 (5(PF6)2), have been prepared, where ttpy is 4'-tolyl-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine, Ntpy is 4'-(di-p-anisylamino)-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine, and NPhtpy is 4'-(di-p-anisylaminophen-4-yl)-2,2':6',2″-terpyridine. X-ray crystallographic data of 2(PF6)2 and 4(PF6)2 are presented. These complexes show rich visible absorptions attributed to the singlet metal-to-ligand charge-transfer ((1)MLCT), triplet MLCT, and intraligand charge-transfer transitions. Complexes 3(PF6)2 and 5(PF6)2 show weak emissions around 720 nm at room temperature. All complexes show stepwise oxidations of the osmium ion and the amine segment. However, the redox potentials and the order of the Os(III/II) and N(•+/0) processes vary significantly, depending on the electronic nature of the amine substituents. In the singly oxidized state, either Os(II) → N(•+) MLCT or N → Os(III) ligand-to-metal charge-transfer transitions in the near-infrared region have been observed. For complexes 2(PF6)2, 4(PF6)2, and 5(PF6)2 with two amine substituents, no evidence has been observed for the presence of osmium-mediated amine-amine electronic coupling. Density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT calculations have been performed to complement these experimental results. The one-electron-oxidized forms 3(3+) and 5(3+) show distinct electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) signals in CH3CN at room temperature. However, complexes 1(3+), 2(3+), and 4(3+) are EPR silent under similar conditions. In addition, a comparison study has been made between these osmium complexes and the previously reported ruthenium analogues.

RESUMO

Nine cyclometalated ruthenium complexes with a redox-active diphenylamine unit in the para position to the RuC bond were prepared. MeO, Me, and Cl substituents on the diphenylamine unit and three types of auxiliary ligands-bis(N-methylbenzimidazolyl)pyridine (Mebip), 2,2':6',2''-terpyridine (tpy), and trimethyl-4,4',4''-tricarboxylate-2,2':6',2''-terpyridine (Me3 tctpy)--were used to vary the electronic properties of these complexes. The derivative with an MeO-substituted amine unit and Me3 tctpy ligand was studied by single-crystal X-ray analysis. All complexes display two well-separated redox waves in the potential region of +0.1 to +1.0 V versus Ag/AgCl, and the potential splitting ranges from 360 to 510 mV. Spectroelectrochemical measurements show that these complexes display electrochromism at low potentials and intense near-infrared (NIR) absorptions. In the one-electron oxidized form, the complex with the Cl-substituted amine unit and Mebip ligand shows a moderate ligand-to-metal charge transfer at 800 nm. The other eight complexes show asymmetric, narrow, and intense intervalence charge-transfer transitions in the NIR region, which are independent of the polarity of the solvent. The Mebip-containing complexes display rhombic or broad isotropic EPR signals, whereas the other seven complexes show relatively narrow isotropic EPR signals. In addition, DFT and time-dependent DFT studies were performed to gain insights into the spin distributions and NIR absorptions.
