Insight into the rules dictating the formation of arene ruthenium metalla-assemblies

Garci, Amine ; Therrien, Bruno (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

The self-assembly process is a natural phenomenon with the ability to organize biological systems. Its development by chemists as a synthetic process allowed the formation of esthetical structures as well as highly complex supramolecular systems with remarkable biological functions. Since 1990, metal directed self-assembly strategy has largely contributed to the design and synthesis of discrete...

The Adaptable Coordination Chemistry of 6-Chloro-2-(quinolin-2-yl)-2,4-dihydro-1H-benzo[d][1,3]oxazine Towards Zinc(II) and Mercury(II)

Attilio Ardizzoia, G. ; Brenna, Stefano ; Therrien, Bruno

In: European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, 2010, vol. 2010, no. 21, p. 3365-3371

The coordination chemistry of 6-chloro-2-(quinolin-2-yl)-2,4-dihydro-1H-benzo[d][1,3]oxazine (LH2) towards zinc and mercury has been explored. The ligand exhibits high versatility and provides different environments to the metal centre as a function of its diverse coordination modes. In one of the isolated and characterized complexes,...

Self-assembled chloro-bridged metallo-prismatic cations of the general formula [M6 (η5-C5Me5)6 (μ3-tpt)2 (μ-Cl)6]6+ (M = Rh, Ir; tpt = 2,4,6-tri(pyridin-4-yl)-1,3,5-triazine)

Govindaswamy, Padavattan ; Süss-Fink, Georg ; Therrien, Bruno

In: Inorganic Chemistry Communications, 2007, vol. 10, no. 12, p. 1489-1492

Two cationic pentamethylcyclopentadienyl metal-based hexanuclear complexes with trigonal prismatic architecture have been synthesised through a two-step strategy. The dinuclear complexes [M(η5- C5Me5)(μ-Cl)Cl]2 (M = rhodium and iridium) react with 2,4,6-tri(pyridin-4-yl)-1,3,5-triazine (tpt) in dichloromethane to give the trinuclear complexes...
