Aerobically stable and substitutionally labile α-diimine rhenium dicarbonyl complexes

Schindler, Kevin ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Zobi, Fabio

In: RSC Advances, 2021, vol. 11, p. 7511-7520

New synthetic routes to aerobically stable and substitutionally labile α-diimine rhenium(I) dicarbonyl complexes are described. The molecules are prepared in high yield from the cis–cis–trans-[Re(CO)2(tBu2bpy)Br2]− anion (2, where tBu2bpy is 4,4′- di-tert-butyl-2,2′-bipyridine), which can be isolated from the one electron reduction of the corresponding 17-electron complex (1)....

New approach for time-resolved and dynamic investigations on nanoparticles agglomeration

Anaraki, Neda Iranpour ; Sadeghpour, Amin ; Iranshahi, Kamran ; Toncelli, Claudio ; Cendrowska, Urszula ; Stellacci, Francesco ; Dommann, Alex ; Wick, Peter ; Neels, Antonia

In: Nano Research, 2020, vol. 13, no. 10, p. 2847–2856

Nanoparticle (NP) colloidal stability plays a crucial role in biomedical application not only for human and environmental safety but also for NP efficiency and functionality. NP agglomeration is considered as a possible process in monodispersed NP colloidal solutions, which drastically affects colloidal stability. This process is triggered by changes in the physicochemical properties of the...

Responsive nanofibers with embedded hierarchical lipid self-assemblies

Tien, Nguyen D. ; Maurya, Anjani K. ; Fortunato, Giuseppino ; Rottmar, Markus ; Zboray, Robert ; Erni, Rolf ; Dommann, Alex ; Rossi, René M. ; Neels, Antonia ; Sadeghpour, Amin

In: Langmuir, 2020, vol. 36, no. 40, p. 11787–11797

We introduce the design and study of a hybrid electrospun membrane with a dedicated nanoscale structural hierarchy for controlled functions in the biomedical domain. The hybrid system comprises submicrometer-sized internally self-assembled lipid nanoparticles (ISAsomes or mesosomes) embedded into the electrospun membrane with a nanofibrous polymer network. The internal structure of ISAsomes, ...

Cytotoxicity of Mn-based photoCORMs of ethynyl-α-diimine ligands against different cancer cell lines: The key role of CO-depleted metal fragments

Rossier, Jeremie ; Delasoie, Joachim ; Haeni, Laetitia ; Hauser, Daniel ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Zobi, Fabio

In: Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, 2020, vol. 209, p. 111122

A series of tricarbonyl manganese complexes bearing 4-ethynyl-2,2′-bipyridine and 5- ethynyl-1,10-phenanthroline α-diimine ligands were synthetized, characterized and conjugated to vitamin B12, previously used as a vector for drug delivery, to take advantage of its water solubility and specificity toward cancer cells. The compounds act as photoactivatable carbon monoxide-releasing molecules...

Tautomerism and self-association in the solution of new pinene-bipyridine and pinene-phenanthroline derivatives

Solea, Atena B. ; Cornu, Ivan ; Deneva, Vera ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Antonov, Liudmil ; Allemann, Christophe ; Mamula, Olimpia

In: Molecules, 2020, vol. 25, no. 2, p. 298

Two novel pinene-type ligands have been synthesized and their tautomeric and self- associating behavior studied in solution and in the solid state. The first ligand, an acetylated derivative of 5,6-pinene-bipyridine, displays keto-enol tautomerism in solution. This tautomeric equilibrium was studied by NMR and UV-Vis spectroscopy in various solvents, and the results were compared with the ones...

Real- and Q-space travelling: multi-dimensional distribution maps of crystal-lattice strain (∊044) and tilt of suspended monolithic silicon nanowire structures

Dolabella, Simone ; Frison, Ruggero ; Chahine, Gilbert A. ; Richter, Carsten ; Schulli, Tobias U. ; Tasdemir, Zuhal ; Alaca, B. Erdem ; Leblebic, Yusuf ; Dommann, Alex ; Neels, Antonia

In: Journal of Applied Crystallography, 2020, vol. 53, no. 1, p. 58–68

Silicon nanowire-based sensors find many applications in micro- and nano- electromechanical systems, thanks to their unique characteristics of flexibility and strength that emerge at the nanoscale. This work is the first study of this class of micro- and nano-fabricated silicon-based structures adopting the scanning X-ray diffraction microscopy technique for mapping the in-plane crystalline...

Structural insights into semicrystalline states of electrospun nanofibers: a multiscale analytical approach

Maurya, Anjani K. ; Weidenbacher, Lukas ; Spano, Fabrizio ; Fortunato, Giuseppino ; Rossi, René M. ; Frenz, Martin ; Dommann, Alex ; Neels, Antonia ; Sadeghpour, Amin

In: Nanoscale, 2019, vol. 11, no. 15, p. 7176–7187

A dedicated nanofiber design for applications in the biomedical domain is based on the understanding of nanofiber structures. The structure of electrospun nanofibers strongly influences their properties and functionalities. In polymeric nanofibers X-ray scattering and diffraction methods, i.e. SAXS and WAXD, are capable of decoding their structural insights from about 100 nm down to the...
