    ABSTRACT: Water-soluble hexagonal NaScF4:Yb/Er nanocrystals have been directly synthesized via a facile one-step hydrothermal route. The as-prepared nanocrystals were monodisperse and could form stable colloidal solutions in polar solvents, such as water and ethanol. The novel NaScF4:Yb/Er nanocrystals exhibited intrinsic intense red upconversion emission, in contrast to other lanthanide-doped fluoride nanocrystals. Remarkably, the upconversion emission intensity was enhanced ∼6.8 times through the coating of an active-shell (containing Yb(3+)) surrounding the NaScF4:Yb/Er core nanocrystals, owing to surface passivation effect and efficient energy transfer from Yb(3+) ions in both the core and the shell to Er(3+) ions. These water-soluble hexagonal NaScF4:Yb/Er nanocrystals with intense red emission are ideal for a variety of in vitro and in vivo biological imaging applications.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, organic electroluminescent (EL) devices with dominant and supplementary light-emitting layers (EMLs) were designed to further improve the EL performances of two iridiumIII-based phosphorescent complexes, which have been reported to provide EL devices with slow EL efficiency roll-off. The widely used hole-block material 2,2′,2ʺ-(1,3,5-Benzinetriyl)-tris(1-phenyl-1-H-benzimidazole) (TPBi) was selected as host material to construct the supplementary EML. Compared with single-EML devices, double-EMLs devices showed higher EL efficiencies, higher brightness, and lower operation voltage attributed to wider recombination zone and better balance of carriers. In addition, the insertion of supplementary EML is instrumental in facilitating carriers trapping, thus improving the color purity. Finally, high performance blue-green and green EL devices with maximum current efficiencies of 35.22 and 90.68 cd/A, maximum power efficiencies of 26.36 and 98.18 lm/W, and maximum brightness of 56,678 and 112,352 cd/m2, respectively, were obtained by optimizing the doping concentrations. Such a device design strategy extends the application of a double EML device structure and provides a chance to simplify device fabrication processes.

    ABSTRACT: Bifunctional lanthanide doped 3D raisin-like GdF3 nanocrystals were synthesized by a microwave method. The influences of synthesis parameters on the final morphology were investigated and the morphology can be tuned to snow-like microcrystals and nanocrystals. The as-prepared samples possess properties of multicolor upconversion (UC) photoluminescence (PL) and paramagnetism. To understand the magnetic mechanism, temperature dependence of zero-field cooling (ZFC) and field cooling (FC) magnetization of the raisin-like GdF3 nanocrystals were studied.

    ABSTRACT: Three three-dimensional coordination polymers, namely, [NH2(CH3)2][Co2(MDIP)(OH)(H2O)]·C3H7NO·H2O (1), [NH2(CH3)2]2[Mn3(MDIP)2]·2C3H7NO (2), and [NH2(CH3)2][Mg3(MDIP)(HMDIP)(C3H7NO)]·4H2O (3) (DMF = N,N′-dimethylformamide), have been synthesized by the solvothermal reaction of Co(II), Mn(II), or Mg(II) salts with methylenediisophthalic acid (H4MDIP). All compounds have been characterized by thermogravimetric analysis, IR spectroscopy, elemental and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses. Complexes 1–3 are anionic frameworks with [NH2(CH3)2]+ ions occupying the voids, built upon tetra-, tri- and asymmetrical trimetallic cores, respectively. In particular, the asymmetrical trinuclear Mg(II) unit in complex 3 was scarcely observed. Topological analyses show that the three compounds possess binodal (4,8)-connected alb topology with a Schläfli symbol of (410.614.84)(45.6)2. Magnetic investigations indicate that antiferromagnetic couplings are dominant in compounds 1 and 2.

    ABSTRACT: The syntheses, crystal structures and magnetic studies are reported for a series of Ln(4) clusters formulated as Ln(4)(μ(3)-OH)(2)(php)(2)(OAc)(6)(H(2)O)(2)]·4MeOH·nH(2)O (Ln = Gd (1), Tb (2), Dy (3) (n = 2) and Ho (4) (n = 0); H(2)php = 2,6-(picolinoylhydrazone)pyridine). The overall metal core of each cluster is comprised of two edge-sharing triangular Ln(3) units linked by μ(3)-OH bridges. Direct-current (dc) magnetic susceptibility studies reveal that the Ln(III) ions are very weakly coupled in all four compounds. Alternating-current (ac) magnetic susceptibility studies for 3 indicate that field-induced slow relaxation phenomenon occurs for this compound.

    ABSTRACT: The ligand 1-(2-naphthyl)-4,4,4-trifluoro-1,3-butanedionate (Htfnd) has been employed to synthesize six novel ternary–lanthanide complexes in which the synergic ligands were 1,10-phenanthroline-5,6-dione (dione) and 4,5-diazafluoren-9-one (dafone), respectively. Two series of complexes Ln(tfnd)3dione and Ln(tfnd)3dafone (Ln=Ho, Pr, Tm) were obtained. These complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, Fourier Transform Infrared spectra and diffused reflectance. After ligand-mediated excitation, Ln(tfnd)3dione and Ln(tfnd)3dafone all show the characteristic NIR luminescence of the corresponding Ln3+ ions (Ln=Ho, Pr, Tm). This can be attributed to the efficient energy transfer from ligands to central Ln3+ ions, via an antenna effect. The indirect energy transfer in the complexes has been investigated and the differences in the luminescence intensity between Ln(tfnd)3dione and Ln(tfnd)3dafone were discussed in detail. The excellent luminescent performances enable these NIR-luminescent complexes to have potential applications in optical amplification operating at 1300 or 1500 nm.

    ABSTRACT: Well-defined 3D Ni(OH)2 nanoflowers were synthesized in high yield via a simple surfactant-free hydrothermal process. On the basis of a series of contrast experiments, the probable growth mechanism and fabrication process of the products were proposed. NiO nanoflowers have also been obtained by thermal decomposition of Ni(OH)2 nanoflowers in air at 500 °C. N2 adsorption–desorption measurements indicate the BET surface area is 198 m2 g−1 and the average pore size of the NiO nanoflowers is 15.1 nm. The electrochemical properties of the NiOelectrodes in a lithium ion battery and magnetic performance were also investigated. The first discharge capacity of the NiO nanoflowers could reach about 1300 mA h g−1. The unique flower-like structure played a critical role in the morphology requirement to serve as a transport path for lithium ions in lithium batteries.

    ABSTRACT: Five new three/two-fold interpenetrated coordination polymers, namely, [Cd(mfda)(L1)] (1), [Cd(efda)(L1)] (2), [Zn2(mfda)2(L2)]·DMF·H2O (3), [Zn2(efda)2(L2)]·(DMF)0.25, (4) and [Cd2(mfda)2(L2)2]·DMF·H2O (5) (H2mfda = 9,9-dimethylfluorene-2,7-dicarboxylic acid, H2efda = 9,9-diethylfluorene-2,7-dicarboxylic acid, L1 = Methylene bis(3,5-dimethylpyrazole) and L2 = 1,4-bis(4-pyridyl)-2,3-diaza-1,3-butadiene), have been synthesized under solvent-thermal conditions with mixed ligands. Compounds 1 and 2 are isostructural and possess two-dimensional (6, 3) layered structures containing two kinds of rings. Three equivalent (6, 3) net interpenetrate in a parallel fashion to form an unprecedented mat-like 2D sheet. Compounds 3 and 4 are almost identical in structure and display threefold interpenetrating α–Po net structures. Compound 5 displays a twofold interpenetrated 3D 6-connected net with α–Po topology. The luminescent properties of these compounds have been studied in the solid state at room temperature.

    ABSTRACT: Well-defined porous Co3O4 microcubes have been synthesized by a simple one-pot solvothermal method combined with subsequent calcination. The formation mechanism of the cube-like precursor was proposed based on the anisotropic intrinsic structure of CoCO3. Importantly, after thermal treatment, the cube-like morphology could be completely preserved. Moreover, the thermal decomposition of the corresponding precursor led to the formation of porous structure. The effects of calcination temperature on the catalytic properties of Co3O4 samples were investigated and the results demonstrated that 600 °C was superior among three samples with the highest catalytic properties. Additionally, as an antiferromagnetic material, the sample showed a certain degree of ferromagnetism under the external magnetic field.

    ABSTRACT: A series of high luminescent europium complexes have been synthesized, such as Eu(TFNB)3phen (1), Eu(PFNP)3phen (2), Eu(HFNH)3phen (3) and Eu(PFND)3phen (4), which have β-diketone ligands containing fluorinated alkyl chains with different lengths and conjugated naphthyl groups, i.e., 4,4,4-trifluoro-1-(2-naphthyl)butane-1,3-dione (TFNB); 4,4,5,5,5-pentafluoro-1-(2-naphthyl)pentane-1,3-dione (PFNP); 4,4,5,5,6,6,6-heptafluoro-1-(2-naphthyl)hexane-1,3-dione (HFNH) and 4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7,8,8,9,9,10,10,10-pentadecafluoro-1-(2-naphthyl)decane-1,3-dione (PFND). And 10-phenanthroline (phen) is coordinated as the neutral second ligand in 1–4. The crystal structures of 1 and 2 have been studied, which are typical and similar to that of 3. The results of TGA–DTA suggest that these Eu complexes have good thermal stabilities. By means of absorption and (time resolved) emission spectroscopy including determination of luminescence quantum yields, energy transfer dynamics and so on, the following results have been obtained: first, these Eu complexes show characteristic pure red color photoluminescence emission with high quantum efficiencies from the central Eu3+ ions through the excitation of the ligands; secondly, photophysical properties of 1, 2, 3 and 4, especially the lifetimes of excited states 5D0 of Eu3+ ions and quantum efficiencies are influenced by the different lengths of fluorinated alkyl chains, though the singlets (S1) and triplets (T1) of the fluorinated ligands are almost the same.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, a series of electroluminescent (EL) devices based on trivalent europium (Eu3+) complex Eu(TTA)3phen (TTA=thenoyltrifluoroacetone, phen=1,10-phenanthroline) were fabricated by selecting 2,9-dimethyl-4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline (BCP) and tris(8-hydroxyquinoline) aluminum (Alq3) as hole block and electron transport materials, respectively. Interestingly, we found the transport of electrons decreases gradually with increasing thicknesses and evaporation rates of BCP and Alq3 layers. Analyzing carrier distribution and EL spectra, we conclude that appropriately modulating the thicknesses and evaporation rates is an efficient way to decrease the accumulation of electrons in HBL, thus suppressing the EL of hole block material. On the other hand, decreasing the transport of electrons can also facilitate the balance of holes and electrons on Eu(TTA)3phen molecules, thus further enhancing the EL efficiency. As a result, pure Eu3+ emission with the efficiency as high as 8.49cd/A was realized by controlling the thicknesses and evaporation rates of BCP and Alq3 layers to be 30nm and 0.10nm/s, 40nm and 0.10nm/s, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Well-defined Sb2S3 microspheres consisted of many small nanoparticles were synthesized via a simple one-pot hydrothermal process. On the basis of a series of contrast experiments, the probable growth mechanism and fabrication process of the products were proposed. The optical properties of the products were studied as well and the results demonstrated that the products presented blue luminescence related to the corresponding microstructure. In addition, we firstly verified that the Sb2S3 microspheres could store hydrogen electrochemically, and a discharge capacity of 101 mA h g−1 was measured under normal atmosphere at room temperature.

    ABSTRACT: Uniform Ni microflowers and Co microspheres have been synthesized by a simple one-pot hydrothermal method with high yield. The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected area electron diffraction (SAED) and superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID). The synthesis of various shaped nanomaterials was achieved using different alkali metal salts. This is the first report on synthesizing Ni and Conanostructures using different mineralization to modulate the morphology of the final products. In addition, these synthesized Ni and Conanocrystals exhibit room-temperature enhanced magnetic properties. Such a facile one-pot approach may also be applied for the synthesis of other metal materials.

    ABSTRACT: High-quality Y(6)O(5)F(8)/YF(3) microcrystals have been synthesised by using a hydrothermal and subsequent calcination route. Upon changing the initial solution pH value, the as-prepared microcrystal can be well tuned from YF(3) octahedron microcrystals to YF(3) hollow spheres and finally to Y(6)O(5)F(8) microtubes. The as-obtained microcrystals have been characterised by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and photoluminescence (PL) spectra. When the Y(6)O(5)F(8):Ln(3+) microtubes are excited by a 980 nm continual wave laser diode, bright red, green, and blue room temperature upconversion PL emissions have been observed. A series of white light emissions have been obtained by precisely adjusting dopants concentration in Y(6)O(5)F(8) microtubes.

    ABSTRACT: Methylenediisophthalic acid (H(4)MDIP), as semi-rigid 'V'-shaped carboxylate ligands, react with CoO, NiO and Cu(NO(3))(2)·3H(2)O to give three novel coordination polymers [H(3)O](2)[Co(3)(MDIP)(2)]·2DMF (1), [Ni(2)(HMDIP)(μ(2)-OH)(H(2)O)(3)(DMF)]·4H(2)O·DMF (2) and [Cu(3)(MDIP)(μ(2)-OH)(2)(H(2)O)(4)]·6.5H(2)O (3) (DMF = N,N'-dimethylformamide). All compounds have been characterized by thermogravimetric analysis, IR spectroscopy, elemental and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses. Complex 1 is an unusual open anionic framework that is defined as the metal-organic replica of fluorite. Both 2 and 3 features a 3D open framework with one-dimensional elliptical channels and R- and L-helical chains, and their resulting frameworks can be rationalized as crb and pts topology respectively. An interesting feature of complex 3 is the presence of the linear Cu(3) units that is formed by carboxylate and μ(2)-hydroxyl groups linking three Cu(II) metal centers. Magnetic investigations indicate that ferromagnetic couplings are dominant in the three compounds.

    ABSTRACT: Three p-tert-butylthiacalix[4]arene (H(4)TC4A)-supported Co(II) compounds, [Co(4)(TC4A)(N(3))(4)(N(6)H(2))(CH(3)OH)](CH(3)OH)(2) (1), [Co(8)(TC4A)(2)(N(3))(2)(N(6)H(2))(2)(CH(3)COO)(4)(CH(3)OH)(4)](OH)(2)(CH(3)OH)(4) (2), and [Co(10)(TC4A)(4)(N(3))(4)](CH(3)OH)(4) (3), have been solvothermally obtained in one pot and structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses, powder XRD, and IR spectroscopy. This work presents the first one-dimensional (1) cobalt cluster for the calixarene complexes and another two octanuclear (2) or decanuclear (3) cobalt clusters. In the structures of compounds 1 and 2, a novel N(6)H(2) ligand formed by the in situ (2 + 3) cycloaddition of two azides was observed. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations give the heat of formation (2N(3)(-) + 2H(+) --> N(6)H(2)) and decomposition energy (N(6)H(2) --> 3N(2) + H(2)) of 677.47 and 124.85 kcal/mol, respectively. Furthermore, an intergradation was determined at the B3LYP/6-311++g(d,p) level for the formation of the N(6)H(2) ligand. In addition, one TC4A ligand of a sandwich unit adopts a cone conformation, while the other adopts a pinched cone conformation in 3. The magnetic properties of these three compounds were influenced mainly by the orbital contributions of the distorted octahedral Co(II) ions.
