    ABSTRACT: Novel supramolecular polymers constructed from Q[8] and 1′,1′′-(alkylene-1,4-diyl)bis(1-butyl)-4,4′-(bipyridine-1,1′-diium)bromide (alkylene = hexylene, octylene) (1, 2) have been fabricated and characterized on the basis of a series of NMR, SEM, and DLS techniques. In particular, single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis clearly reveals their ternary host–guest construction nature by mediating the Q[8] host molecule through two terminal butyl chains (that are simultaneously included inside the host cavity) of two guest molecules depending on multiple hydrogen bonding interactions between the host and guest molecules as well as between the host and host molecules with the total energy amounting to as high as 161.2 kJ mol−1. This represents the first example of ternary host–guest supramolecular polymers that are mediated through alkyl chains instead of aromatic moieties included.

    ABSTRACT: Reaction of metal-free N-confused 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-chlorophenyl)porphyrin (H2NTClPP) with metal-free 5,10,15,20-tetrakis[(4-tert-butyl)phenyl]porphyrin (H2TBPP) in the presence of M(III)(acac)3·nH2O (acac = acetylacetonate) in refluxing 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene (TCB) led to the isolation of heteroleptic bis(porphyrinato) rare earth compounds M(III)(HNTClPP)(TBPP) (M = La, Pr) (, ) in 6.7-10% yield. These represent the first examples of sandwich-type porphyrin rare earth double-decker complexes that involve N-confused porphyrin ligand. Different from their homoleptic bis(porphyrinato) rare earth double-decker counterparts HM(III)(TBPP)2 (M = La, Pr) (, ), the acidic proton in the heteroleptic analogues was revealed to localize at the inverted pyrrole nitrogen atom of the N-confused porphyrin ligand on the basis of NMR spectroscopic studies. Nevertheless, their heteroleptic bis(porphyrinato) sandwich molecular nature was confirmed on the basis of single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis over the praseodymium double-decker complex.

    ABSTRACT: Five new heterobimetallic complexes, namely, {[Ni(L)][Fe(bpb)(CN)2]}ClO4 (L = 2,12-dimethyl-3,7,11,17-tetraazabicyclo[11.3.1]heptadeca-1(17),13,15-triene, bpb(2-) = 1,2-bis(pyridine-2-carboxamido)benzenate) (1), {[Ni(L)]3[M(CN)6]2}·7H2O (M = Fe (2), Cr (3)), {[Ni(L)]2[Mo(CN)8]}·CH3CN·13H2O (4), and {[Ni(L)]2[W(CN)8]}·16H2O (5), were assembled from the polyaza macrocycle nickel(II) compound and five cyanidometalate precursors containing different numbers of cyanide groups. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals their different structure ranging from a cyanide-bridged cationic polymeric single chain for 1, a two-dimensional network for 2 and 3, and a three-dimensional network for 4 and 5. In addition, a systematic investigation over the magnetic properties of 1-3 indicates the ferromagnetic magnetic coupling between neighboring Fe(III)/Cr(III) and Ni(II) ions through the bridging cyanide group. For complex 1, the magnetic susceptibility has been simulated by the Seiden model using the Hamiltonian H = -J∑i=0(N)SiSi+1, leading to the magnetic coupling constant of J = 3.67 cm(-1). The two-dimensional magnetic complexes exhibit three-dimensional magnetic ordering behavior with a magnetic phase transition temperature of TC = 4.0 K for 2 and TN = 6.0 K for 3, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: A series of unsymmetrical phenanthroline-fused phthalocyanine derivatives including Zn[Pc(Phen)], Zn[Pc(Phen)2], Zn[Pc(Phen)3], Zn[Pc(NH2)6(Phen)], Zn[Pc(NH2)4(Phen)2], Zn[Pc(NH2)2(Phen)3], Zn[PcF6(Phen)], Zn[PcF4(Phen)2], and Zn[PcF2(Phen)3] were designed to explore their properties of geometric and electronic structures, electronic absorption spectra, and second-order nonlinear responses under density functional theory and time-dependent density functional theory calculations. The computational results show that the peripheral substituents with push-pull effect could obviously change the π–π* transitions, leading to a tunable absorption region in the range between 300–800 nm. The hyperpolarizabilities were carefully investigated using CP-DFT method, revealing the size effect and clarifying the limit when expanding the conjugated system is employed to improve the hyper-Rayleigh scattering response coefficient (βHRS). According to the results, the NH2-substitued phenanthroline-fused phthalocyanines are considered as ideal NLO blocking materials with large βHRS.

    ABSTRACT: The mixed cyclic tetramerization of 4,5-bis(hexylthio)phthalonitrile and bis(diiminoisoindoline) with [M(acac)3]·nH2O (M = Pr, Eu, Lu) as template in the presence of 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU) in n-pentanol at reflux has provided binuclear phthalocyanine-containing sandwich-type rare-earth complexes [{Pc(SC6H13)8}M{BiPc(SC6H13)12}M(SC6H13)8] (M = Pr, Eu, Lu; 1–3). These new binuclear phthalocyanine-containing sandwich compounds have been characterized by a series of spectroscopic methods including mass spectrometry and 1H NMR, electronic absorption, and IR spectroscopy in addition to elemental analysis. Their electrochemical data have also been obtained by cyclic voltammetry. In addition, the third-order nonlinear optical properties of [{Pc(SC6H13)8}Pr{BiPc(SC6H13)12}Pr(SC6H13)8] (1) and [Pr{Pc(SC6H13)8}2] in toluene solution were studied comparatively by using the Z-scan technique; effective imaginary third-order molecular hyperpolarizabilities of 1.86 × 10–11 and 1.56 × 10–11 esu, respectively, were obtained, which indicates their potential application in the optical-limiting field.

    ABSTRACT: A novel mixed (phthalocyaninato)(porphyrinato) yttrium(III) double-decker complex with a C60 chromophore covalently linked at the porphyrin ligand by phenyl ether linkage has been designed and synthesized. The photophysical properties of this novel dyad containing the C60 and mixed (phthalocyaninato)(porphyrinato) yttrium(III) double-decker components were investigated by steady-state and transient spectroscopic methods. Comparative studies over the electronic absorption spectra document that there is no considerable electronic interaction between the C60 and mixed (phthalocyaninato)(porphyrinato) yttrium(III) double-decker components in the ground state. Time-resolved absorption spectra of this dyad reveal a photoinduced electron transfer from the {HY[Pc(α-OC4H9)8](Por)} moiety to the C60 moiety upon irradiation at 400 nm, which excites both of the components, resulting in a charge-separated state with a lifetime longer than 1 ns.

    ABSTRACT: Unsymmetrical phenanthroline-fused phthalocyaninato zinc monomer 2,3,9,10,16,17-hexakis(2,6-dimethyl-phenoxy)-22,25-diaza-(1,10-phenanthrolino)[5,6-c1] 1 was prepared by mixed cyclic tetramerization of two phthalonitrile precursors. Reaction of 1 with RuCl3·xH2O led to the isolation of the ruthenium coordinated phthalocyanine dimer, namely bis{2,3,9,10,16,17-hexakis(2,6-dimethyl-phenoxy)-22,25-diaza-(1,10-phenanthrolino)[5,6-c1]phthalocyaninato zinc complex} ruthenium dichloride 2. This is unambiguously evidenced by the mass and NMR spectroscopic characterization of 2 together with the fluorescence quenching of the monomer 1 after the formation of the dimer 2.

    ABSTRACT: A series of porphyrin nanospindles with controlled long axis length distributions of 330, 550, 800 nm, and 4 μm have been successfully fabricated via hierarchical self-assembly of cationic porphyrin (H6TPyP)(4+) with the help of anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfonate (SDS) due to the effective electrostatic interaction. These newly fabricated nanostructures are characterized by TEM and SEM techniques, powder X-ray diffraction analysis, electronic absorption spectroscopy, and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). The Z-scan technique with a laser duration of 5 ns at the wavelength of 532 nm reveals unreported size-dependent third-order NLO switching properties: the nonlinear absorption changes from saturation absorption to reversed saturation absorption and the nonlinear refraction from self-defocus to self-focus due to the change of the dominant scattering effect, from Rayleigh scattering for nanostructures with a smaller size than the wavelength of laser light, to Mie scattering for nanostructures with a larger size than the laser wavelength. This result is useful for the development of organic nanostructures with desired NLO properties, in particular the optical limiting properties.

    ABSTRACT: Two new chiral sandwich-type bis(phthalocyaninato) yttrium double-decker complexes including the homoleptic species (R)- and (S)-Y[Pc(OBNP)4]2 () and a heteroleptic analogue (R)- and (S)-Y(Pc)[Pc(OBNP)4] () {Pc = unsubstituted phthalocyaninate; [Pc(OBNP)4] = tetrakis(dinaphtho[1,2-e:1',2'-g]-1,4-(dioxocine)[2,3-b;2',3'-k;2'',3''-t;2''',3'''-c']phthalocyaninate)} have been synthesized and spectroscopically characterized. In particular, the molecular structures of (R)- and (S)- were determined on the basis of single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, representing the first structurally characterized chiral bis(phthalocyaninato) rare earth double-decker complexes. Perfect mirror-image CD signals observed in the whole phthalocyanine absorption range of the CD spectra of the (R)- and (S)-enantiomers for both compounds reveal the effective chiral information transfer from the peripheral binaphthyl moieties to the phthalocyanine chromophore, while the difference observed in the CD spectrum between and indicates the effect of the chiral substituent number on the chiral information transfer. Nevertheless, the absolute structures unambiguously elucidated for both enantiomers of the homoleptic double-decker render it possible to clarify the chirality of optically active bis(phthalocyaninato) rare earth compounds.

    ABSTRACT: 2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24-Octakis(phenoxy)phthalocyaninato manganese complex MnCl[Pc(OPh)8] (1) was prepared and spectroscopically and electrochemically characterized.

The molecular structure of 1 with a central chloridized trivalent manganese ion has been clearly determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The third order nonlinear optical properties of 1 and 2 in toluene solution were studied using Z-scan technique, giving effective imaginary third order molecular hyperpolarizability of 1.44 × 10−11 and 2.27 × 10−11 esu, respectively, indicating the potential application of the phthalocyaninato manganese complexes in the optical limiting.

    ABSTRACT: Hydrothermal reaction between Zn(OAc)2·2H2O and three asymmetric semirigid V-shaped multicarboxylate ligands H3L1–3 with the help of a 4,4'-bipyridine (4,4'-bpy) or 1,4-bis(imidazol-1-ylmethyl)benzene (bix) linker led to the isolation of six new coordination polymers, including [Zn3(L1)2(4,4′-bpy)2]n·(H2O)2n (1), [Zn3(L2)2(4,4′-bpy)(H2O)2]n·(H2O)2n (2), [Zn3(L3)2(4,4′-bpy)2(H2O)4]n·(H2O)6n (3), [Zn3(L1)2(bix)3]n·(H2O)7n (4), [Zn3(L2)2(bix)3]n·(H2O)4n (5), and [Zn3(HL3)2(bix)2]n (6), where H3L1, H3L2, H3L3 ligands represent 3-(2-carboxyphenoxy)phthalic acid, 4-(2-carboxyphenoxy)phthalic acid, 3-(4-carboxyphenoxy)phthalic acid, respectively. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis reveals a three-dimensional (3D) network for 1 and 3–5 but a two-dimensional (2D) structure for 2 and 6. Despite the construction from the polymetallic chains connected by the 4,4′-bpy ligands for both compounds 1 and 2, a 3D architecture was revealed for the former species while a 2D configuration for the latter one. Complex 3 contains open nanotube building units composed of sole 44-numbered metallomacrocycles. For 4, the 20-numbered metallomacrocycle subunits linked by Zn ions give a 1D chain, which further form a 3D polymeric structure with the help of the other cyclic-shaped subunits made from the bix ligands and Zn ions. A 3D framework of 5 is generated from the 2D sheets simplified as a (6,3) net bound by the bix ligands. Compound 6 shows a 2D corrugated framework simplified as a (4,4) net assembled by the bix ligand and dinuclear zinc unit as node. These results seem to suggest that the diversity in the building subunits formed in 1–6 actually originates from the intrinsic nature of the three asymmetric V-shaped tricarboxylate ligands together with the tunable coordination geometry and molecular configurations of ligands by the N-donor ligand employed. In addition, the thermal stability and luminescence properties for the series of six complexes have also been investigated.

    ABSTRACT: Reaction between Schiff-base ligand and half-sandwich complex M(Pc)(acac) led to the isolation of new sandwich-type mixed (phthalocyaninato)(Schiff-base) di-lanthanide compounds M2(Pc)2(L)H2O (M = Dy, Gd) (, ) [H2Pc = metal free phthalocyanine, Hacac = acetylacetone, H2L = N,N'-bis(3-methyloxysalicylidene)benzene-1,2-diamine] with the triple-decker molecular structure clearly revealed by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. For the comparative studies, sandwich triple-decker analogues with pure Schiff-base ligand M2(L)3H2O (M = Dy, Gd) (, ) were also prepared. Dynamic magnetic measurement result reveals the single-molecule magnet (SMM) nature of the di-dysprosium derivative , while the static magnetic investigation over both pure and the diamagnetic diluted samples of this compound discloses the interionic ferromagnetic coupling between the two dysprosium ions, which in turn effectively suppresses the QTM and enhances the energy barrier of this SMM. Nevertheless, comparative studies over the static magnetic properties of the di-dysprosium triple-decker complexes and indicate the stronger magnetic coupling between the two lanthanide ions in mixed (phthalocyaninato)(Schiff-base) species than in the pure Schiff-base triple-decker analogue, suggesting the special coordination sphere around the dysprosium ions in the former compound over the latter one on the more intense inter-ionic ferromagnetic coupling. As a very small step towards understanding the structure-property relationship, the present result will be surely helpful for the design and synthesis of the multinuclear lanthanide-based SMMs with good properties.

    ABSTRACT: Crystalline nanostructures with octahedral morphology have been prepared by self-assembling of cationic porphyrin (H6TPyP)4+·4Cl– produced through chemical reaction route in aqueous solution depending on the synergistic interactions among hydrogen-bonding, π–π stacking, and ion pairing. Unexpectedly, the gradual decrease in pH by the slow evaporation of solvent in the nano-octahedron aqueous suspension obtained in situ led to the selective etching of the original nanocrystal and the isolation of (H6TPyP)4+·4Cl– bulk single crystals in the last stage. More interestingly, the increase in pH by adding water again into this bulk single-crystal-containing system led to the regeneration of nano-octahedrons, indicating the reversible transformation between porphyrin nano-octahedrons and bulk single crystals triggered by pH. Mechanistic investigations through powder and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses together with the electron microscopic, in particular, HRTEM, clearly reveal that the unique surface effect and anisotropic character of the nanomaterials differing from the bulk organic materials are responsible for such pH-sensitive reversible transformation of the two crystalline materials by controlling the dissolution or aggregation of (H6TPyP)4+·4Cl–, which actually induces the reversible formation and breaking of the (pyridine)N+–H···Cl–···H–O(H2O)···H–N+(pyridine) hydrogen bonds among cationic porphyrin building blocks at different pH. This result, to control the crystallinity and the unprecedented reversible transformation between nanocrystal and bulk single crystals just by tuning the pH of the synthesis process, as well as the use of the peculiar nanoeffect such as surface effect to adjust the self-assembling process, provides useful a tool for the controllable synthesis of crystalline materials and is expected to be helpful for further research and application of organic nanomaterials.

    ABSTRACT: Two porphyrinato-zinc derivatives modified with two and four N,N-di(2-pyridylmethyl)amino groups, namely Zn-Porphyrin-2-DPA (1) and Zn-Porphyrin-4-DPA (2), have been designed, synthesized, and characterized. Systemic studies over a series of metal ions reveal that binding with Fe(3+) for the former compound induces the decrease of fluorescence emission intensity by 37.2%, while for the latter one results in a more remarkable decrease in the fluorescence emission intensity by 90.3%, rendering compound 2 the first example of DPA-modified porphyrin fluorescence ON-OFF sensor for Fe(3+).
