Optical and Vibrational Properties of [Pt@Pb-12](2-), [Ni@Pb-12](2-), and [Ni@Pb-10](2-) Zintl Ion Clusters

The optical and vibrational properties of Pt- and Ni-centered Pb-Zintl-ion clusters have been investigated by UV/Vis and FTIR spectroscopy. Computational studies have been performed to better interpret the experimental data, due to a lack of any FTIR and UV/Vis spectroscopic studies on these clusters or similar ones in the literature. UV/Vis spectroscopic analyses show an asymmetric broad absorption band, with a maximum at 265 nm for both Pt- and Ni-centered Pb clusters. FTIR spectroscopic analysis demonstrated that the vibrational modes of the clusters appear at the low-frequency (terahertz) range of the spectrum. Vibrational modes of [Pt@Pb-12](2-) and [Ni@Pb-12](2-) are observed at 74 cm(-1), and those of [Ni@Pb-10](2-) appear at 86, 143, and 200 cm(-1). Similarities between simulated and experimental spectra strongly support isolated cluster behavior. [Pt@Pb-12](2-), [Ni@Pb-12](2-), and [Ni@Pb-10](2-) are the only Zintl ion clusters that have been characterized with UV/Vis and FTIR spectroscopic analyses to elucidate their optical and vibrational properties.


Optical and vibrational properties of nickel integrated germanium Zintl ion clusters
Ogun, Esra; Esentürk, Okan; Nalbant Esentürk, Emren (Elsevier BV, 2019-05-01)
Vibrational and optical properties of Ni-Ge clusters ([Ni2Ge9(PPh3)](2-), [Ni6Ge13(CO)(5)](4-)) have been investigated via UV-Vis, FTIR, and Fluorescence spectroscopies. Moreover, frequency and time-dependent (TD) electronic transition calculations have been performed to better characterize experimental findings, due to the scarcity of vibrational and optical spectroscopic studies on these type of clusters in the literature. UV-Vis spectroscopic analyses demonstrate a broad absorption band, with a maximum a...
One-pot synthesis of colloidally robust rhodium(0) nanoparticles and their catalytic activity in the dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane for chemical hydrogen storage
Ayvali, Tugce; Zahmakiran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2011-01-01)
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles stabilized by tert-butylammonium octanoate were prepared reproducibly from the reduction of rhodium(II) octanoate with tert-butylamine-borane in toluene at room temperature and characterized by ICP-OES, TEM, HRTEM, STEM, EDX, XRD, XPS, FTIR, UV-vis, B-11, C-13 and H-1 NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis. These new rhodium(0) nanoparticles show unprecedented catalytic activity, lifetime and reusability as a heterogeneous catalyst in room temperature dehydrogenation of ammonia-bor...
Carboligation reactivity of benzaldehyde lyase (BAL, EC covalently attached to magnetic nanoparticles
TURAL, Bilsen; Turan, Ilke Simsek; TURAL, SERVET; Celebi, Bulent; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (Elsevier BV, 2013-03-31)
Epoxy-functionalized Fe3O4-SiO2 core-shell magnetic nanoparticles (epoxy-M-support) were prepared by modification with glycidyloxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS) and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) methods. Pure histidine-tagged recombinant benzaldehydelyase (BAL, EC 4.1.238) was efficiently immobilized onto the epoxy-M-support with covalent binding. An immobilized BAL epoxy-M-support system was tested to cat...
Rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on hydroxyapatite: preparation, characterization and catalytic use in hydrogen generation from hydrolysis of hydrazine borane and ammonia borane
Çelik, Derya; Özkar, Saim; Department of Chemistry (2012)
This dissertation presents the preparation and characterization of rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on hydroxyapatite, and investigation of their catalytic activity in hydrogen generation from the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane and ammonia-borane. Rh+3 ions were impregnated on hydroxyapatite by ion-exchange; then rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on hydroxyapatite were formed in-situ during the hydrolysis of hydrazine-borane at room temperature. The rhodium(0) nanoparticles supported on hydroxyapatite we...
Vibrational frequencies studied as a function of pressure in phase II of solid benzene
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Kilit, E. (Elsevier BV, 2011-05-03)
The pressure dependence of the vibrational frequencies of six Raman modes is analyzed in phase II of solid benzene. The frequency shifts 1/nu(partial derivative nu/partial derivative P)(T) of those Raman modes are deduced from this analysis and they are related to the isothermal compressibility kappa(T)= -(1/V)(partial derivative V/partial derivative P)(T) through a constant isothermal mode Gruneisen parameter gamma(T) in phase II of solid benzene. The kappa(T) values predicted here are compared with the ka...
