The design of nanocomposites consisting of functional metals and proper matrices is a very active field of research for the development of recyclable catalysts. Highly active metallic nanoparticles must be stabilized by a suitable support in order to prevent aggregation to bulk metal. Hectorite, a representative smectite clay featured by its unique swelling properties and flexible intercalation...

Metallic ruthenium nanoparticles derived from arene ruthenium complexes : synthesis, characterization and applications

Khan, Farooq-Ahmad ; Süss-Fink, Georg (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2012 ; 2247.

The present work deals with the preparation of ruthenium nanoparticles using an organometallic approach. In the first part, the synthesis of ruthenium nanoparticles stabilized by mesogenic isonicotinic ester ligands is presented. We have been interested in the use of long-chain isonicotinic esters as lipohilic components in order to increase the anticancer activity of arene ruthenium...
