New polynuclear silver(I) complexes, [Ag(CF3SO3)(4,7-phen)(CH3CN)]n (1) and [Ag(PO2F2)(4,7-phen)]n (2), were synthesized by the reaction of 4,7-phenanthroline (4,7-phen) and the corresponding AgX salt (X = CF3SO3 - and PF6 -) in 1:2 mole ratio, respectively, in methanol/acetone (1:1 volume ratio) at room temperature. The characterization of the complexes was established on the basis of...

Five novel silver(I) complexes with 4,7-phenanthroline (4,7-phen), [Ag(NO3-O)(4,7- phen-μ-N4,N7)]n (1), [Ag(ClO4-О)(4,7-phen-μ-N4,N7)]n (2), [Ag(CF3COO-O)(4,7- phen-μ-N4,N7)]n (3), [Ag2(H2O)0.58(4,7-phen)3](SbF6)2 (4) and {[Ag2(H2O)(4,7- phen-μ-N4,N7)2](BF4)2}n (5) were synthesized, structurally elucidated and biologically evaluated. These complexes showed selectivity towards Candida spp....

Tautomerism in azo dyes: Border cases of azo and hydrazo tautomers as possible NMR reference compounds

Deneva, Vera ; Lyčka, Antonin ; Hristova, S. ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Antonov, Liudmil M.

In: Dyes and Pigments, 2019, vol. 165, p. 157–163

In order to meet the need for NMR reference compounds in the study of tautomeric azo dyes, two series of azo dyes, derived from 3-methyl-1-phenyl-4- (phenyldiazenyl)-1H-pyrazol-5-amine and 5-methyl-2-phenyl-4-(2- phenylhydrazono)-2,4-dihydro-3H-pyrazol-3-one, have been studied by using molecular spectroscopy (UV–Vis and NMR) and quantum-chemical calculations (M06- 2X/TZVP) in solution. The...

Mononuclear silver(I) complexes with 1,7-phenanthroline as potent inhibitors of Candida growth

Savić, Nada D. ; Vojnovic, Sandra ; Glišić, Biljana Đ. ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Pavic, Aleksandar ; Janjić, Goran V. ; Pekmezović, Marina ; Opsenica, Igor M. ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Nikodinovic-Runic, Jasmina ; Djuran, Miloš I.

In: European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2018, vol. 156, p. 760–773

Mononuclear silver(I) complexes with 1,7-phenanthroline (1,7-phen), [Ag(NO3-O,O′) (1,7-phen-N7)2] (1) and [Ag(1,7-phen-N7)2]X, X = ClO4− (2), CF3SO3− (3), BF4− (4) and SbF6− (5) were synthesized and structurally characterized by NMR (1H and 13C), IR and UV–Vis spectroscopy and ESI mass spectrometry. The crystal structures of 1, 3 and 4 were determined by single-crystal X-ray...

A concept for stimulated proton transfer in 1-(phenyldiazenyl)naphthalen-2-ols

Hristova, S. ; Deneva, Vera V. ; Pittelkow, M. ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Kamounah, Fadhil S. . ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Hansen, P. E. ; Antonov, Liudmil M.

In: Dyes and Pigments, 2018, vol. 156, p. 91–99

A series of aryl azo derivatives of naphthols (1–3) were studied by means of UV–Vis and NMR spectroscopy in different solvents as well as by quantum chemical calculations and X-ray analysis. Previous studies have shown that Sudan I (1) exists as a tautomeric mixture. The effect of the solvents is minimized by the existing intramolecular hydrogen bond. Therefore, the influence on the...

Threading salen-type Cu- and Ni-complexes into one-dimensional coordination polymers: solution versus solid state and the size effect of the alkali metal ion

Finelli, Alba ; Hérault, Nelly ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Fromm, and Katharina M.

In: Crystal Growth & Design, 2018, vol. 18, no. 2, p. 1215–1226

Compartmentalization of metal ions is crucial in biology as well as in materials science. For the synthesis of single source precursors, the preorganization of different metal ions is of particular interest for the low-temperature generation of mixed metal oxides. On the basis of a potentially Ω-shaped salen-type ligand providing an N2O2 as well as an O2O2 coordination site, mixed metal...

Puckering behavior in six new phosphoric triamides containing aliphatic six- and seven-membered ring groups and a database survey of analogous ring-containing structures

Alviri, Banafsheh Vahdani ; Pourayoubi, Mehrdad ; Saneei, Anahid ; Keikha, Mojtaba ; Lee, Arie van der ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Ajees, A. Abdul ; Nečas, Marek ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Damodaran, Krishnan ; Jenny, Titus A.

In: Tetrahedron, 2018, vol. 74, no. 1, p. 28–41

The influence of a N heteroatom on the ring conformations of six- and seven- membered aliphatic rings in six new C(O)NHP(O)-based phosphoric triamide structures (analysed by X-ray crystallography) is investigated. Additionally the influence of steric and crystal packing effects is also studied by the analysis of Hirshfeld surfaces. The results are compared to analogous structures with three-...

Influence of anions and solvent molecules on the packing and emission spectra of coordination polymers based on silver ions and an anthracene derivative

Chen, Jing ; Voutier, Noémie ; Rajabi, Jamshid ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Bassani, Dario M. ; Fromm, Katharina M.

In: CrystEngComm, 2017, vol. 19, no. 34, p. 5106–5113

Luminescence between green and blue was observed in the solid state for the free ligand L (anthracene-9,10-diylbis(methylene) dinicotinate) and five different Ag-L coordination polymers upon excitation at 344 nm. Depending on the packing of the anthracene moieties due to coordinating anions and the presence or absence of solvent molecules, the emission maximum is shifted.

Characteristics and properties of nano-LiCoO2 synthesized by pre-organized single source precursors: Li-ion diffusivity, electrochemistry and biological assessment

Brog, Jean?Pierre ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Seydoux, Joël ; Clift, Martin J. D. ; Baichette, Benoît ; Maharajan, Sivarajakumar ; Barosova, Hana ; Brodard, Pierre ; Spodaryk, Mariana ; Züttel, Andreas ; Rothen?Rutishauser, Barbara ; Kwon, Nam Hee ; Fromm, Katharina M.

In: Journal of Nanobiotechnology, 2017, vol. 15, p. 58

LiCoO₂ is one of the most used cathode materials in Li-ion batteries. Its conventional synthesis requires high temperature (>800 °C) and long heating time (>24 h) to obtain the micronscale rhombohedral layered high-temperature phase of LiCoO₂ (HT-LCO). Nanoscale HT-LCO is of interest to improve the battery performance as the lithium (Li⁺) ion pathway is expected to be shorter in...
