    ABSTRACT: Layered MFI zeolite allows a straightforward hierarchization of the pore system which accelerates mass transfer and increases its lifetime as a catalyst. Here, we present a theoretical study of the structural features of the pure-silica and aluminium-substituted MFI nanosheets. We have analysed the effects of aluminium substitution on the vibrational properties of silanols as well as the features of protons as counter-ions. The formation of the two-dimensional system did not lead to appreciable distortions within the framework. Moreover, the effects on the structure due to the aluminium dopants were the same in both the bulk and the slab. The principal differences were related to the silanol groups that form hydrogen-bonds with neighbouring aluminium-substituted silanols, whereas intra-framework hydrogen-bonds increase the stability of aluminium-substituted silanols toward dehydration. Thus, we have complemented previous experimental and theoretical studies, showing the lamellar MFI zeolite to be a very stable material of high crystallinity regardless of its very thin structure.

    ABSTRACT: The previouslyunknownhexagonalReB2-type IrB2 diboride and orthorhombic IrB monoboride phases were produced by mechanochemical syntheses. High energy ball milling of elemental Ir and B powder for 30h, followed by annealing of the powder at 1050 °C for 48h, resulted in the formation of the desired phases. Both traditional laboratory and high resolution synchrotron X-ray diffraction (XRD) analyses were used for phase identification of the synthesized powder. In addition to XRD, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy were employed to further characterize the microstructure of the phases produced.

    ABSTRACT: Two new coordination complexes with tetrazole heterocycle ligands bearing acetate groups, [Co(L)(2)](n) (1) and [Co-3(L)(4)(N-3)(2)center dot 2MeOH](n) (2) (L=tetrazole-1-acetate) have been synthesized and structurally characterized. Single crystal structure analysis shows that the cobalt-complex 1 has the 3D 3,6-connected (4(2).6)(2)(4(4).6(2).8(8).10)-ant topology. By introducing azide in this system, complex 2 forms the 2D network containing the [Co-3] units. And the magnetic properties of 1 and 2 have been studied.

    ABSTRACT: Two 2D new Cu(I) coordination polymers, namely [Cu2(mpTZ)2Br2]·H2O (1), and [Cu2(mpTZ)2N3]ClO4 (2) (mpTZ=N-methyl-4-pyridinium tetrazolate) have been synthesized under solvothermal conditions, in which the mpTZ ligands and CuI ions were obtained through in situ [2+3] cycloaddition reaction and reduction reaction of CuII salts, respectively. Both compounds have been structural characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, FT-IR, PXRD and EA. Compound 1 exhibits a 2D neutral coordination network, in which the CuI ions are bridged by η3-1, 2, 4-tetrazolate into 2D sheet. In compound 2, the CuI ions are linked by azide (in μ3-1, 1, 3 bridging mode) and tetrazolate (in η3-1, 2, 3 bridging mode) anions into 2D positively charged sheet, extended along the bc plane. Both compounds 1 and 2 exhibit intense bluish green luminescence in the solid state. Photocatalytic performances of the two compounds for the degradation of methylene blue (MB) under visible light were also investigated and the MB degradation in the presence of 1 was nearly complete (99%) after 150 min.

    ABSTRACT: The g-C3N4/Y2MoO6:Eu3+ composite phosphors were synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy, ultraviolet visible diffuse reflection spectra, photoluminescence spectra and luminescence decay curves. Under the excitation of 360 nm near ultraviolet light, these composite phosphors show tunable emission from blue to red region, in which white light emission can be obtained in term of appropriate quality proportion of Y2MoO6:Eu3+ relative to g-C3N4/Y2MoO6:Eu3+. In addition, the emission color can be also dependent on the excitation wavelength in g-C3N4/Y2MoO6:Eu3+ composite phosphor.

    ABSTRACT: Several compositions of the Cu4-xLixS2 (x=1, 2, 3) series were synthesized via solid-state reaction of the elements. The structural stability at various temperatures and the effect of Li:Cu ratio on the thermal conductivity and the electrochemical performance of Cu4-xLixS2/Li half-cells during charge-discharge process were investigated. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements showed a sharp endothermic peak at 140°C for Cu4-xLixS2 samples with x=1 and 2, which is ascribed to a structural phase transition. X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements on various Cu4-xLixS2 samples at temperatures below and above 140°C indicated a structural phase transition from the room temperature low-symmetry structure to the high temperature cubic structure of Cu2S. The thermal conductivity of Cu4-xLixS2 samples decreases with decreasing Cu:Li ratio and with increasing temperature. The thermal conductivity of Cu4-xLixS2 samples at room temperature decreases from 1.2 W/m K for Cu:Li=3:1 to 0.7 W/m K for Cu:Li=1:3. Cyclic voltammetry of Cu4-xLixS2/Li half-cells showed that high discharge capacity (165 mA h g-1) and stable reversible charge-discharge process is observed for Cu:Li=2:2, whereas other Cu:Li ratios lead to low discharge capacity and poor reversibility. The electrochemical behavior of Cu4-xLixS2/Li half-cells is rationalized by taking into account the competing reactions of Li+ ions with CuS and Cu2S during discharge.

    ABSTRACT: Two new rare-earth – alkali – tellurium oxide halides were synthesized by a salt flux technique and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The structures of the new compounds Cs7Sm11[TeO3]12Cl16 (I) and Rb7Nd11[TeO3]12Br16 (II) (both tetragonal, space group I4/mcm) correspond to the sequence of [MLn11(TeO3)12] and [M6X16] layers and bear very strong similarities to those of known selenite analogs. We discuss the trends in similarities and differences in compositions and structural details between the Se and Te compounds; more members of the family are predicted.

    ABSTRACT: A zeolitic Cd(II)-boron-imidazolate-framework (BIF-51) with ABW topology has been successfully synthesized by using pre-synthesized B(im)4- ligands (im=imidazole) and [Cd(CH3COO)]- building units. Ag nanoparticles (NPs) were loaded in BIF-51 by the pore confinement effect of BIFs. Sensing property of nitrobenzene on BIF-51 and catalytic property of 4-nitrophenol (4-NP) on Ag@BIF-51 were also investigated.

    ABSTRACT: A color-tunable luminescent material was prepared based on the composition of functionalized graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) and europium (III). The functionalized g-C3N4 layers not only behave as multifunctional supports including ligand coordinated with europium (III) and a support structure for the formation of the luminescent material, but exhibit excitation wavelength-dependent luminescence, thus the energy transfer between the functionalized g-C3N4 and europium (III) can match very well by controlling the emission wavelength of functionalized g-C3N4. The as-prepared materials was comprehensively characterized via X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy, X-ray scattering techniques, Ultraviolet and Visible spectrophotometer, fluorescence spectrophotometer, thermogravimetric analysis, etc. The luminescent material exhibits multi-color emissions which are consistent with the characteristic emissions of europium (III) and functionalized g-C3N4, and the photoluminescence quality and density of the europium (III) can be greatly enhanced. The brilliant optical properties of the materials make them suiting for multipurpose applications in practical fields.

    ABSTRACT: Two thallium (I) thorium (IV) fluorides, TlTh3F13 and TlThF5 were obtained by solid state synthesis and their crystal structures determined from single crystal X-ray diffraction data recorded at room temperature with an APEX-II CCD diffractometer. TlTh3F13 is orthorhombic, space group Pmc21, with a=8.1801(2) Å, b=7.4479(2) Å, c=8.6375(2) Å, V=526.24(2) Å3, Z=2 and TlThF5 is monoclinic, space group P21/n, with a=8.1128(5) Å, b=7.2250(4) Å, c=8.8493(6) Å, β=116.683(3)°, V=463.46(5) Å3, Z=4. The structure of TlTh3F13 comprises layers of corner and edge-sharing ThF9 polyhedra further linked by chains of trans connected tricapped trigonal prisms ThF9 through corners and edges. The three dimensional thorium frameworks delimits channels parallel to [0 0 1] where the 11-coordinated Tl+ ions are arranged into double columns located in mirror planes of the structure. TlTh3F13 is isotypic with RbTh3F13, RbU3F13 and with one of the two polymorphs of CsTh3F13. The structure of TlThF5 may be regarded as a layer structure built up from the regular succession of ∞2[M′F5]- corrugated layers further held by the Tl+ ions along the [1 0 1¯] direction. The layers are built up from edge and corner-sharing thorium polyhedra where each (ThF9)5- monocapped square antiprism is connected to five others by sharing three edges and two corners. TlThF5 is isostructural with β-NH4UF5 and with one of the polymorphs of CsThF5. A comparison of the different structural types of MM′F5 pentafluorides is presented and a diagram of repartition of their structures is given. From the comparison of the Tl structures with their Rb or Cs homologs, where very similar monovalent cation environments are observed it should be concluded to a stereochemically inactivity of the 6s2 lone pair of Tl(I) in both TlTh3F13 and TlThF5, contrary to what is observed in richer Tl(I) content Tl3ThF7 fluorothorate.
