Investigating the trimethylaluminium/water ALD process on mesoporous silica by in situ gravimetric monitoring

Strempel, Verena E. ; Knemeyer, Kristian ; Naumann d’Alnoncourt, Raoul ; Rosowski, Frank (2018-05-24)

A low amount of AlOx was successfully deposited on an unordered, mesoporous SiO2 powder using 1–3 ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition) cycles of trimethylaluminium and water. The process was realized in a self-built ALD setup featuring a microbalanceand a fixed particle bed. The reactor temperature was varied between 75, 120, and 200 °C. The self-limiting nature of the deposition was verified by in si...

Higher alcohol synthesis over Rh catalysts: conditioning of Rh/N-CNTs by Co and Mn entrapped in the support

Xie, Zailai ; Frank, Benjamin ; Huang, Xing ; Schlögl, Robert ; Trunschke, Annette (2016-10-13)

Rh nanoparticles supported on commercial non-purified N-doped CNTs (NCNTs) containing residual CNT growth catalyst have been studied in hydrogenation of CO to higher alcohols. It has been found that Co and Mn residues in NCNTs are not inert, but change the catalyst under reaction conditions and efficiently promote the catalyst resulting in both increasing activity and selectivity to C2+ alcohol...

Synthesis of an electronically modified carbon nitride from a processable semiconductor, 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole oligomer, via a topotactic-like phase transition

Savateev, Aleksandr ; Pronkin, Sergey ; Epping, Jan Dirk ; Willinger, Marc Georg ; Antonietti, Markus ; Dontsova, Dariya (2017)

A thermally induced topotactic transformation of organic polymeric semiconductors is achieved using similarity of the chemical structures of two C,N,H-containing materials. Namely, the oligomer of 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (OATA) is transformed into an electronically modified graphitic carbon nitride (OATA-CN) upon heating at 550 °C. During the transition, the flat band potential of the organic se...

Synthesis of a cyclopentadienyl(imino)stannylene and its direct conversion into halo(imino)stannylenes

Ochiai, Tatsumi ; Inoue, Shigeyoshi (2017)

The reaction of stannocene Cp2Sn with iminolithium LiNIPr (NIPr = bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-iminato) afforded the dimeric cyclopentadienyl(imino)stannylene [(η1-Cp)SnNIPr]2 (1). Compound 1 exhibits unexpected reactivity towards haloalkanes. The high-yield conversion of 1 into chlorostannylene [ClSnNIPr]2 (2) and bromostannylene [BrSnNIPr]2 (3) were accomplished by treatment with di...

Lindenmaier, Nils (2017)

In dieser Arbeit wurden einkernige Ni- und heterodimere [NiFe]-Komplexe im Kontext der von [NiFe]-H2ase und -CODH „bioinspirierten” Katalyse synthetisiert und untersucht. Im ersten Teil der Arbeit wurde ein neuartiger Silylen-Pyridin-Hybridligand für die Koordination von Nickel(II)- und Nickel(0)-Spezies entwickelt und auf seine σ-Donor- und π-Akzeptoreigenschaften hin analysiert. Der zweite Te...

Blom, Burgert ; Klatt, Günter ; Gallego, Daniel ; Tan, Gengwen ; Drieß, Matthias (2015)

The first N-heterocyclic silylene (NHSi) complexes of any s-block element to date are reported for calcium: [(eta(5)-C5Me5)(2)Ca<--:Si(O-C6H4-2-Bu-t){((NBu)-Bu-t)(2)CPh}] (6) and [(eta(5)-C5Me5)(2)Ca<--:Si((NBuCH)-Bu-t)(2)] (7).

Using nickel manganese oxide catalysts for efficient water oxidation

Menezes, Prashanth W. ; Indra, Arindam ; Levy, Ophir ; Kailasam, Kamalakannan ; Gutkin, Vitaly ; Pfrommer, Johannes ; Drieß, Matthias (2015)

Nickel-manganese oxides with variable Ni : Mn ratios, synthesised from heterobimetallic single-source precursors, turned out to be efficient water oxidation catalysts. They were subjected to oxidant-driven, photo- and electro-catalytic water oxidation showing superior activity and remarkable stability. In addition, a structure-activity relation could be established.

Reductive cleavage of P-4 by iron(I) centres: synthesis and structural characterisation of Fe-2(P-2)(2) complexes with two bridging P-2(2-) ligands

Yao, Shenglai ; Szilvási, Tibor ; Lindenmaier, Nils ; Xiong, Yun ; Inoue, Shigeyoshi ; Adelhardt, Mario ; Sutter, Jörg ; Meyer, Karsten ; Drieß, Matthias (2015)

The selective transformation of white phosphorus with a beta-diketiminato iron(I) toluene complex under mild reaction conditions is reported which furnishes a new dinuclear iron(III) Fe-2(P-2)(2) complex with two bridging P-2(2-) ligands. Its reduction with potassium results in the formation of the first delocalised mixed-valent bis-diphosphido iron(II,III) complex which is isostructural with t...

Facile synthesis of new, highly efficient SnO2/carbon nitride composite photocatalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction

Fettkenhauer, Christian ; Clavel, Guylhaine ; Kailasam, Kamalakannan ; Antonietti, Markus ; Dontsova, Dariya (2015)

Novel SnO2/carbon nitride photocatalysts having surface areas up to 220 m(2) g(-1) were prepared for the first time by condensation of dicyandiamide in alkali metal chloride/SnCl2-containing salt melts at 550 degrees C, without the use of hard templates. XRD and HR-TEM investigations showed that the obtained materials are composed of 5-10 nm SnO2 nanoparticles deposited onto nanosheets set up f...

Peripheral mechanism of a carbonyl hydrosilylation catalysed by an SiNSi iron pincer complex

Metsänen, Toni Tapio ; Gallego, Daniel ; Szilvasi, Tibor ; Drieß, Matthias ; Oestreich, Martin (2015)

Combined experimental and theoretical analysis of the carbonyl hydrosilylation catalysed by an iron(0) pincer complex reveals an unprecedented mechanism of action. The iron(0) complex is in fact a precatalyst that is converted into an iron(II) catalyst through oxidative addition of a hydrosilane. Neither the hydrogen atom nor the silicon atom bound to the iron(II) centre are subsequently transf...

Azarpira, Anahita ; Pfrommer, Johannes ; Olech, Katarzyna ; Höhn, Christian ; Drieß, Matthias ; Stannowski, Bernd ; Schedel-Niedrig, Thomas ; Lublow, Michael (2016)

Organic solvents with varied electrophoretic mobility have been employed for deposition of nanocrystalline ZnO: Co particles onto fluorinated tin oxide supports. Evaluation of the electrochemical activity for the oxygen evolution reaction proves a clear solvent-dependence with highest activity upon deposition from acetonitrile and lowest activity upon deposition from ethanol. Analysis of the re...

Menezes, Prashanth W. ; Indra, Arindam ; Bergmann, Arno ; Chernev, Petko ; Walter, Carsten ; Dau, Holger ; Strasser, Peter ; Drieß, Matthias (2016)

The fabrication and design of earth-abundant and high-performance catalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) are very crucial for the development and commercialization of sustainable energy conversion technologies. Although spinel catalysts have been widely explored for the electrochemical oxygen evolution reaction (OER), the role of two geometrical sites that influence their activities ...

Heavier congeners of CO and CO2 as ligands: from zero-valent germanium ('germylone') to isolable monomeric GeX and GeX2 complexes (X = S, Se, Te)

Xiong, Yun ; Yao, Shenglai ; Karni, Miriam ; Kostenko, Arseni ; Burchert, Alexander ; Apeloig, Yitzhak ; Drieß, Matthias (2016)

In contrast to molecular CO and CO2, their heavier mono- and dichalcogenide homologues, EX and EX2 (E = Si, Ge, Sn, Pb; X = O, S, Se, Te), are important support materials (e.g., SiO2) and/or semiconductors (e.g., SiS2) and exist typically as insoluble crystalline or amorphous polymers under normal conditions. Herein, we report the first successful synthesis and characterisation of an extraordin...

Kafentzi, Maria-Chrysanthi ; Orio, Maylis ; Réglier, Marius ; Yao, Shenglai ; Kuhlmann, Uwe ; Hildebrandt, Peter ; Drieß, Matthias ; Simaan, A. Jalila ; Ray, Kallol (2016)

Two new heterobimetallic [LNiO2Cu(RPY2)](+) (RPY2 = N-substituted bis 2-pyridyl(ethylamine) ligands with R = indane, 3a or R = Me, 3b) complexes have been spectroscopically trapped at low temperatures. They were prepared by reacting the mononuclear side-on LNiII superoxo precursor bearing a beta-diketiminate ligand (L = [HC-(CMeNC6H3(iPr)(2))(2)]) with the Cu(I) complexes. In contrast to the ox...

Formation of N-heterocyclic, donor-stabilized borenium ions

Someya, Chika I. ; Inoue, Shigeyoshi ; Präsang, Carsten ; Irran, Elisabeth ; Drieß, Matthias (2011)

Cationic and zwitterionic boryl bromide species and a borenium–boryl bromide cation have been synthesised which represent new N-donor stabilised cationic boron compounds with β-diketiminate ligands. The unexpected borenium–boryl bromide results from a head-to-tail dimerisation of the corresponding zwitterionic boryl bromide accompanied by proton migration. The electronic nature of these new spe...
