Fundamental and technological aspects of organo-f-element chemistry by Tobin J Marks( Book )

11 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past decade has seen a dramatic acceleration of activity and interest in phenomena surrounding lanthanide and actinide organo metallic compounds. Around the world, active research in organo-f element synthesis, chemistry, catalysis, crystallography, and quantum chemistry is in progress. This activity has spanned a remarkably wide range of disciplines, from synthetic/mechanistic inorganic and organic chemistry to radiochemistry, catalytic chemistry, spectroscopy (vibra tional, optical, magnetic resonance, photoelectron, Mossbauer), X-ray and neutron diffraction structural analysis, as well as to crystal field and molecular orbital theoretical studies at the interface of chemistry and physics. These investigations have been motivated both by fundamental and applied goals. The evidence that f-element organo metallic compounds have unique chemical and physical properties which cannot be duplicated by organometallic compounds of d-block elements has suggested many new areas of endeavor and application. For these reasons, a great many scientists felt the need for some international forum devoted exclusively to the subject of lanthanide and actinide organometallic compounds. In September of 1978, a NATO Advanced Study Institute entitled, "Organometallics of the f-Elements," was held at the SOGESTA Conference Center near Urbino, Italy. It was the universal feeling of the partic ipants that this first meeting was a great success and that vital international communication and collaboration had been stimulated. The principal lectures at this Institute were published by Reidel in 1979 as part of the NATO ASI Monograph Series ("Organometallics of the f-Elements," T.J. Marks and R.D. Fischer, editors)
Organometallics of the f-elements : proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute held at Sogesta, Urbino, Italy, September 11-22, 1978 by Tobin J Marks( Book )

While the organometallic chemistry of the d-block transition elements has been a flourishing field for the past 25 years, it has only been in the last several years that dramatic activity and progJ'ess has occurred in the area of lanthanide and actinide organometallic chemistry. The f.-element organometallic research effort has been truly multinational and multidisciplinary. In a large number of countries, sCientists have become increasingly interested in the synthesis, reactivity, spectroscopy, and the molecular and electronic structures of f-element organometallic compounds. The backgrounds of these scientists range from organic, inorganic, nuclear, and catalytic chemistry to chemical and nuclear physics. The motivations for the study of f-element organometallics have been equally varied. In the area of basic research, there has been a growing realization that the lanthanides and actinides represent two unique and, to a great extent, neglected families of elements in which many fascinating aspects of chemistry and bonding remain to be explored. On a more practical level, an increasing number of these elements play important roles in nuclear energy production and in industrial catalytic processes. It has become apparent that efficiency and safety in both areas could greatly benefit from increased knowledge. In the past there has been no suitable international forum available for bringing together researchers in the diverse areas of f-element organometallic science mentioned above
Transparent electronics : from synthesis to applications by Antonio Facchetti( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The challenge for producing "invisible" electronic circuitry and opto-electronic devices is that the transistor materials must be transparent to visible light yet have good carrier mobilities. This requires a special class of materials having "contra-indicated properties" because from the band structure point of view, the combination of transparency and conductivity is contradictory

Structural basis for the mechanical properties of polyeth[y]lenes by S. H Carr( Book )

2 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The physical properties of polyethylene, the material used in gas transmission pipes, are ultimately determined by the nature of the polymeric molecules in the resin used in pipe manufacture. This relation between molecular structure and properties is based on the morphology formed in the polyethylene by a particular processing history. Model polyethylenes having very narrow molecular weight distributions and well defined levels of short chain branching and long chain branching have been used to quantify the effects of molecular structure on mechanical behavior. This first stage of the program has concentrated on true stress-true strain tensile properties and in the fracture toughness of single edge notched samples. It has been demonstrated that a critical molecular weight is required for the attainment of good ductility and fracture toughness. This critical molecular weight is increased by short chain branching and by long chain branching. The J-Integral method of analyzing fracture mechanics has been shown to be the best technique for inherently ductile polyethylenes. Measurements show 2.5-fold increase in fracture toughness over precisely the same molecular weight range at which tensile ductility is achieved. Further work will extend our studies to lower short chain branch concentrations with model polyethylenes directly analogous to the most satisfactory resins for gas pipe applications. jg p3

Slow cooling of a hot acetonitrile solution of tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) and iodine yields a mixture of crystalline products including monoclinic crystals of high iodine composition: TTF I3. A single crystal X-ray structure analysis has been carried out on these crystals of symmetry P2 sub 1/n with 4 molecules per unit cell
Rational Control of Electronic Structure and Lattice Architecture in Electrically Conducting Molecular/Macromolecular Assemblies( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article discusses an approach to control molecular stacking interactions in low-dimensional mixed molecular assemblies by locking partially oxidized metallomacrocycles together in a face-to-face orientation. Thus, doping of the cofacially linked polymers M(Pc)O sub n (M = Si, Ge, Sn; Pc = phthalocyaninato) with halogen (I2, Br2) or quinone (e.g., DDQ, TCNQ) electron acceptors produces robust, electrically conductive polymers with a wide range of stoichiometries and properties. The new materials have been studied by a variety of physical methods including X-ray diffraction, resonance Raman and infrared spectroscopy, ESR, static magnetic susceptibility, variable-temperature four-probe d.c., electrical conductivity, and voltage-shorted compaction techniques. Evidence is presented that some of the macromolecules have metal-like conductivity in the stacking direction and that transport properties within the series can be readily manipulated by rational variation of lattice architecture (e.g., the identity of the metal, M) and acceptor characteristics. Insight into those acceptor properties which stabilize the mixed valent state is provided. (Author)

Electrically Conductive Macromolecules via Cofacial Assembly Techniques( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The properties of low-dimensional mixed valence material consisting of molecular stacks are critically dependent on the rather capricious and unpredictable intermolecular forces that dictate whether stacks form, whether the stacks are segregated, the orientation of donor with respect to acceptor the relative orientation of units within a stack, and the stacking repeat distance. Discussed in this lecture are rational approaches to overcome such problems by combining polymer chemistry with recently developed methodology for synthesizing stacked, partially oxidized metallomacrocycles and for measuring the degree of incomplete charge transfer. New results on the chemical, structural, and electronic properties of highly conductive macro-molecules prepared by covalently linking metallomacrocycles in a rigid, face-to-face configuration as shown below, followed by doping, are presented

Self-Assembled Materials Systems and Devices for R-FLICS( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electro-optic (EO) modulators based on multilayer self-assembled superlattices (SAS) from wet deposition, and from vapor phase deposition have been designed, fabricated, and characterized. Two-step wet chemical protection-deprotection approach for the growth of SAS was used for the fabrication of electro-optic modulators. With this process the SAS film can he grown at a rate of about 40 minutes per bilayer, and it is at least one order of magnitude more rapid than previous three-step deposition method. Novel approaches of self-assembly via vapor phase deposition were investigated for the growth of EO active DTPT, and PEPCOOH thin films. The EO active thin films exhibit strong second harmonic generation and EO modulation effects without external electric field poling. Promising electro-optic materials were used for the grown of EO thin films from vapor phase, and prototype electro-optic modulators were fabricated and tested by integrating the intrinsically acentric self-assembled thin films with low-loss polymeric layers and semiconductor substrates

PBT, PBO-Based Hybrid Polymers with Nonlinear Optical Properties or High Electrical Conductivity( )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project involves a collaborative synthetic, polymer processing, and physicochemical program directed at exploiting the unique properties of the high modulus/high strength polymers poly(p-phenylenebenzobisthiazole) (PBT) and poly- (p-phenylenebenzobisoxazole) (PBO) for electronic charge transport and nonlinear optical (NLO) properties. In the former area, we have continued our successful studies of directly doping these polymers by electrochemical means and of processing phthalocyanine/polymer hybrid materials. In the NLO area, we have continued exploration of the properties of NLO chromophore/PBT hybrid materials and of glassy macromolecules with such chromophores covalently bonded to the backbone. Initial studies of oriented NLO chromophores embedded in crosslinkable matrices have also been carried out. Approaches to inorganic/ organic hybrid NLO materials via intercalation processes are also under investigation. Keywords: Conductive polymers, Phthalocyanine, Nonlinear Optical properties, Polymer doping
