ABSTRACT

The title compound, cis-diacetonitrile[(1R,2R)-1,2-diaminocyclohexane-κ(2)N,N']platinum(II) dinitrate monohydrate, [Pt(C(2)H(3)N)(2)(C(6)H(14)N(2))](NO(3))(2)·H(2)O, is a molecular salt of the diaminocyclohexane-Pt complex cation. There are two formula units in the asymmetric unit. Apart from the two charge-balancing nitrate anions, one neutral molecule of water is present. The components interact via N-H...O and O-H...O hydrogen bonds, resulting in supramolecular chains. The title compound crystallizes only from acetonitrile with residual water, with the acetonitrile coordinating to the molecule of cis-[Pt(NO(3))(2)(DACH)] (DACH is 1,2-diaminocyclohexane) and the water forming a monohydrate.

    ABSTRACT: The title compound 1, cis-[diiodo(1R,2R)-1,2-diaminocyclohexane-κN,κN′]platinum(II), a precursor of a novel platinum-based anticancer complex, was synthesized. High purity (>99%) was determined by HPLC–UV/VIS and its structure was characterized by LC–ESI–MS, FT-IR and X-ray single-crystal diffraction. The molecules of the title compound interact via N–H···I and C–H···I intermolecular (ultra)-long hydrogen–iodine (acceptor) bonds (distances up to 3.1 Å). The crystal structure of the title compound 1 was compared to the structure calculated on the basis of density function theory (DFT). The calculated and measured data varied by a maximum of 0.09 Å in bond lengths and the maximum deviation between the compared angles were less than 2°. Experimentally measured bond lengths in the crystal were observed to be reduced when compared to the theoretical calculation. This was caused by both steric requirements of individual structural units and the presence of hydrogen bonds in real sample, which were confirmed by FT-IR (new bands as well as the band shifts to lower wavelengths).

    ABSTRACT: Another new substance from the family of Pt-based coordination complexes with potential use in cancer chemotherapy has been synthesized, crystallized and structurally characterized. In this compound {systematic name cis-dibromido[(1R,2R)-cyclohexane-1,2-diamine-κ(2)N,N']platinum(II)}, cis-[PtBr(2)(C(6)H(14)N(2))], there are two molecules with very similar conformations in the asymmetric unit. The component species interact by way of N-H...Br and C-H...Br hydrogen bonds to give two-dimensional networks which lie parallel to the (100) plane.

    ABSTRACT: Due to exceptional electronic properties of graphene (Gr) and nitrogen doped graphene (N-Gr), they are considered as superior supporting platforms for novel metal nanoparticle decorations. Here, we report, a novel one-step electrochemical method for synthesis of Nitrogen-doped graphene sheets uniformly decorated with platinum nanoparticles (Pt/N-Gr). A graphite rod and platinum wire are respectively used for graphene and platinum nanoparticles production. The potential is cycled from -3V to +3V in acetonitrile solution as a nitrogen dopant source. By increasing the number of cycles the nitrogen-doped graphene/platinum nanoparticles composite is generated. After heat-treating the composite is characterized with various techniques such as FTIR, Raman, XPS, SEM and TEM. The electrocatalytic activity of the prepared composite toward the reduction of O2 and the oxidation of usual anodic fuels such as methanol, ethanol, hydrazine and formic acid is investigated using cyclic voltammetry technique. In comparison to commercial platinum/carbon, the onset potentials and the current densities for both O2 reduction and fuels oxidation are remarkably improved. Furthermore, the modified electrode by this composite shows good long-term stability and poisoning tolerance.
