"{Synthesis of {[}MoS4](2-)-M (M=Cu and Cd) Clusters: Potential NMR Spectroscopic Structural Probes for the Orange Protein}." {EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF INORGANIC CHEMISTRY} (2012): {4159-4166}. Abstract

{Two synthetic strategies of tetrathiomolybdate-metal clusters with the potential to be used as NMR structural probes for the location of the metal cofactor in the orange protein (ORP) are described. The first strategy is based on the substitution reaction in which small organic ligands bind directly to the metal centre in a molybdenumcopper hetero-dinuclear cluster. Interaction between {[}PPh4]2{[}MoS4CuCl] and either aliphatic {[}beta-mercaptoethanol (b-me)] or aromatic {[}o-aminobenzenethiol (abt)] thiols in the presence of a strong base resulted in the formation of {[}Ph4P]2{[}S2MoS2Cu(b-me)] (1a) and {[}Et4N]2{[}S2MoS2Cu(abt)]center dot H2O center dot 0.25DMF (1b), which can be used to obtain intermolecular NOEs. The compound 1a readily hydrolyzed to {[}Ph4P]2{[}OSMoS2Cu(b-me)] (1ahydro) in contact with a protic solvent. The second strategy consisted of the incorporation of cadmium into tetrathiomolybdate ({[}MoS4]2), which gives rise to the trinuclear cluster compound {[}PPh4]2{[}(MoS4)2Cd] (2). All clusters were characterized spectroscopically and their structure determined by X-ray diffraction. The NMR spectroscopic data are consistent with the formation of a complex with a 1:1 ratio of \{MoS4Cu\} and thiol. The 113Cd NMR chemical shift of compound 2 is consistent with the cadmium having a tetrahedral geometry and coordinated by four sulfur ligands. The tetraphenylphosphonium cation in compound 1a was replaced by a tetramethylammonium countercation originating in the water-soluble compound {[}Me4N-1a]. Solubility in aqueous buffers is a requirement for incorporating this cluster into apo-ORP. These compounds will be used to identify the exact location of the ORP heterometallic cluster using NMR methodologies.}

"{Synthesis and structural characterisation of (aryl-BIAN)copper(I) complexes and their application as catalysts for the cycloaddition of azides and alkynes}." {DALTON TRANSACTIONS}. {41} (2012): {5144-5154}. Abstract

{{A series of Ar-BIAN-based copper(I) complexes (where Ar-BIAN = bis(aryl) acenaphthenequinonediimine) were synthesised and characterised by H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopies, FT-IR spectroscopy, MALDI-TOF-MS spectrometry, cyclic voltammetry and single crystal X-ray diffraction. The bis-chelated complexes of general formula {[}Cu(Ar-BIAN)(2)]BF4 (where Ar = C6H5 (1), 4-iPrC(6)H(4) (3), 2-iPrC(6)H(4) (4)) were prepared by reaction of {[}Cu(NCMe)(4)]BF4 with two equivalents of the corresponding Ar-BIAN ligands, in dichloromethane, while the mono-chelated complexes of the type {[}Cu(Ar-BIAN)L2]BF4 (where Ar = 2,6-iPr(2)C(6)H(3)

"{Synthesis and characterization of {[}S2MoS2Cu(n-SPhF)](2-) (n = o, m, P) clusters: Potential F-19-NMR structural probes for Orange Protein}." {INORGANIC CHEMISTRY COMMUNICATIONS}. {45} (2014): {97-100}. Abstract

{Three fluorinated Mo-Cu-thiolate isomers,{[}Ph4Ph{[}S2MoS2Cu(n-SPhF)], {[}n-SPhF = 2-fluorothiophenol (la)], 3-fluorothiophenol (lb), and 4-fluorothiophenol (1c)] were synthesized and spectroscopically characterized. The F-19-NMR signal of the fluorine atom in the.benzene has different chemical shift for each isomer, which is highly influenced by the local environment that can be manipulated by different solvents and solutes. The fluorine-19 chemical shift is an advantageous NMR structural probe in alternative to H-1-NMR {[}B.K. Maiti, T. Aviles, M. Matzapetakis, I. Moura, S.R. Pauleta, JJ.G. Moura, Eur. J. Inorg. Chem.

{The reactions of TCNE- and TCNQ-functionalized (TCNE: tetracyanoethylene and TCNQ: 7,7', 8,8'-tetra-cyanoquinodimethane) zwitterionic benzoquinonemonoimines with a Cu(I)-BIAN complex (BIAN = bis-(o, o'-bisisopropylphenyl)acenaphthenequinonediimine) have been investigated and found to follow a diversity of interesting patterns. The complexes {[}Cu(BIAN)(NCMe)(L2)]BF4 (2) and {[}Cu(BIAN)(L2)(2)]BF4 (4) were obtained by reacting {[}Cu(BIAN)(NCMe) 2] BF4 (1) with one and two equivalents of L2, respectively. Following similar procedures, the complexes {[}Cu(BIAN)(NCMe)(L3)] BF4 (6) and {[}Cu(BIAN)(L3)(2)]BF4 (7) were obtained by reaction of 1 with L3. The reaction of 2 with 0.5 equiv. of 4,4'-bipyridine afforded {[}\{Cu(BIAN)-(L2)\}(2)(mu-4,4'-bipyridine)](BF4)(2) (3). The complexes were characterized by multinuclear NMR, IR and UV-Vis spectroscopic techniques, mass spectrometry, cyclic voltammetry and elemental analysis. The molecular structures of complexes 3 center dot 4CH(2)Cl(2) and 4 center dot CH2Cl2 were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. An unexpected coordination polymer {[}Cu(L2(-))(2)](infinity) (5) was also structurally characterized, which contains Cu(II) centres chelated by two N, O-bound ligands resulting from the monodeprotonation of L2.}

"{P,O-Phosphinophenolate zinc(II) species: synthesis, structure and use in the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactide, epsilon-caprolactone and trimethylene carbonate}." {DALTON TRANSACTIONS}. {44} (2015): {12376-12387}. Abstract

{The P, O-type phosphinophenol proligands (1 center dot H, 2-PPh2-4-Me-6-Me-C6H2OH; 2 center dot H, 2-PPh2-4-Me-6-Bu-t-C6H2OH) readily react with one equiv. of ZnEt2 to afford in high yields the corresponding Zn(II)ethyl dimers of the type {[}(kappa(2)-P, O) Zn-Et](2) (3 and 4) with two mu-O-Ph bridging oxygens connecting the two Zn(II) centers, as determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies in the case of 3. Based on diffusion-ordered NMR spectroscopy (DOSY), both species 3 and 4 retain their dimeric structures in solution. The alcoholysis reaction of Zn(II) alkyls 3 and 4 with BnOH led to the high yield formation of the corresponding Zn(II) benzyloxide species {[}(kappa(2)-P, O) Zn-OBn](2) (5 and 6), isolated in a pure form as colorless solids. The centrosymmetric and dimeric nature of Zn(II) alkoxides 5 and 6 in solution was deduced from DOSY NMR experiments and multinuclear NMR data. Though the heteroleptic species 5 is stable in solution, its analogue 6 is instable in CH2Cl2 solution at room temperature to slowly decompose to the corresponding homoleptic species 8 via the transient formation of (kappa(2)-P, O)(2)Zn-2(mu-OBn)(mu-kappa(1):kappa(1)-P, O) (6'). Crystallization of compound 6 led to crystals of 6', as established by XRD analysis. The reaction of ZnEt2 with two equiv. of 1 center dot H and 2 center dot H allowed access to the corresponding homoleptic species of the type {[}Zn(P, O)(2)] (7 and 8). All gathered data are consistent with compound 7 being a dinuclear species in the solid state and in solution. Data for species 8, which bears a sterically demanding P, O-ligand, are consistent with a mononuclear species in solution. The Zn(II) alkoxide species 5 and the {[}Zn(P, O)(2)]-type compounds 7 and 8 were evaluated as initiators of the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactide (LA), epsilon-caprolactone (epsilon-CL) and trimethylene carbonate (TMC). Species 5 is a well-behaved ROP initiator for the homo-, co- and terpolymerization of all three monomers with the production of narrow disperse materials under living and immortal conditions. Though species 7 and 8 are ROP inactive on their own, they readily polymerize LA in the presence of a nucleophile such as BnOH to produce narrow disperse PLA, presumably via an activated-monomer ROP mechanism.}

Moura. "{One Electron Reduced Square Planar Bis(benzene-1,2-dithiolato) Copper Dianionic Complex and Redox Switch by O-2/HO-}." {INORGANIC CHEMISTRY}. {53} (2014): {12799-12808}. Abstract

{The complex {[}Ph4P](2){[}Cu(bdt)(2)] (1(red)) was synthesized by the reaction of {[}Ph4P]2{[}S2MoS2CuCl] with H2bdt (bdt = benzene-1,2-dithiolate) in basic medium. 1(red) is highly susceptible toward dioxygen, affording the one electron oxidized diamagnetic compound {[}Ph4P]{[}Cu(bdt)(2)] (1(ox)). The interconversion between these two oxidation states can be switched by addition of O-2 or base (Et4NOH = tetraethylammonium hydroxide), as demonstrated by cyclic voltammetry and UV-visible and EPR spectroscopies. Thiomolybdates, in free or complex forms with copper ions, play an important role in the stability of 1(red) during its synthesis, since in its absence, 1(ox) is isolated. Both 1(red) and 1(ox) were structurally characterized by X-ray crystallography. EPR experiments showed that 1(red) is a Cu(II)-sulfur complex and revealed strong covalency on the copper-sulfur bonds. DFT calculations confirmed the spin density delocalization over the four sulfur atoms (76%) and copper (24%) atom, suggesting that 1(red) has a ``thiyl radical character{''}. Time dependent DFT calculations identified such ligand to ligand charge transfer transitions. Accordingly, 1(red) is better described by the two isoelectronic structures {[}Cu(I)(bdt(2), 4S(3-{*}))](2-) {[}Cu-II(bdt(2), 4S(4-))](2-). On thermodynamic grounds, oxidation of 1(red) (doublet state) leads to 1(ox) singlet state, {[}Cu-III(bd(t)2, 4S(4-))](1-).}

{Three new emissive 8-aminoquinoline derived probes (1)-(3) and one dinuclear Zn(II) complex (4) were synthesized and fully characterized. Their absorption spectra show maxima at 310-336 nm, and fluorescence emission between 456 and 498 nm. Compound (1) was characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The effect upon Zn(II) and Cu(II) coordination to compounds (1)-(3) was studied by monitoring the changes in absorption and fluorescence spectra, and complemented by calculation of metal-ligand stability constants. The results indicate that compound (3) is the one that presents the most favorable geometry for coordinating two metal cations, fact that is confirmed by the synthesis of the dinuclear complex (4), with similar molecular geometry.

"{Influence of a thioether function in short-bite diphosphine ligands on the nature of their silver complexes: structure of a trinuclear complex and of a coordination polymer}." {DALTON TRANSACTIONS}. {42} (2013): {12109-12119}. Abstract

{New cationic Ag(I) complexes were prepared by reaction of AgBF4 with two thioether-functionalized bis-(diphenylphosphino) amine ligands, Ph2PN(p-ArSMe)PPh2 (L1) and Ph2PN(n-PrSMe)PPh2 (L2), and compared with those obtained from the unfunctionalized ligands Ph2PN(Ph)PPh2 (L3) and Ph2PN(n-Bu)PPh2 (L4), respectively. The complex {[}Ag-3(mu(3)-Cl)(2)(mu(2)-L1-P, P)(3)](BF4) (1 center dot BF4) contains a triangular array of Ag centres supported by three bridging L1 ligands and two triply-bridging chlorides. In contrast, ligand L2 led to the coordination polymer {[}\{Ag-2(mu(3)-L2,-P,P,S)(2)(MeCN)(2)\}\{Ag-2(mu(2)-L2-P,P)(2)(MeCN)(2) \}(BF4)(4)](n) (2) in which the tethered thioether group connects intermolecularly a Ag2 unit to the diphosphine bridging the other Ag2 unit. With L3 and L4, two similar complexes were obtained, {[}Ag-2(mu(2)-L3)(BF4)(2)] (3) and {[}Ag-2(mu(2)-L4)(BF4)(2)] (4), respectively, with bridging diphosphine ligands and a BF4 anion completing the coordination sphere of the metal. Complexes 1 center dot BF4 center dot CH2Cl2, 2 center dot THF, 3 center dot 3CH(2)Cl(2) and 4 have been fully characterized, including by single crystal X-ray diffraction.}
