Book Description :

Magneto-optical (MO) and femtosecond time-resolved spectroscopies have been employed to study the electronic structure and relaxation dynamics of atomically precise monolayer-protected clusters (MPCs). To begin, magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectroscopy was introduced and employed to characterize the excitation spectrum of the Au102(pMBA)44 and Au25(PET)18 clusters. It is demonstrated through variable-temperature variable-field (VTVH ) MCD analysis of the Au102(pMBA)44 cluster that: a) the optical properties of distinct structural motifs within MPCs are individually spectroscopically addressable; and b) MO spectroscopy provides the quantification of necessary electronic structure parameters to sufficiently characterize these systems. Electronic structure parameters determined through VTVH analysis, of note, are Land g-factors, fine structure splitting energies, and Faraday Term contributions to the optical magnetic response. From VTVH -MCD study of the Au102(pMBA)44 cluster, the long-contended mechanism for previously observed low temperature magnetism in nanoscale gold was addressed.Having demonstrated the usefulness of VTVH -MCD spectroscopy, the emission analogue, magnetic circular photoluminescence (MCPL) spectroscopy was developed. It was shown through study of the Au25(PET)18 cluster that VTVH -MCPL retains the fundamental formalism and information content of VTVH -MCD. The application of these electronic structure parameters to transient dynamics were utilized in determining the state-resolved mechanism for Au25(PET)18 PL. From this PL mechanism, state-resolved carrier relaxation pathways correlated to superatom-based emission and metal-to-ligand charge transfer emission were characterized. Incorporated into the PL mechanism for Au25(PET)18 were spectroscopic term symbols and fine structure splittings as quantified through VTVH -MCPL analysis. A relation between superatom-based emission to plasmon-mediated emission in larger Au systems was proposed. Next, the influence of structural modification of the Au25(PET)18 cluster on the emission-related carrier dynamics was studied through VTVH -MCPL and VT-PL spectroscopy. To begin, the effect of metal doping to the Au25(PET)18 icosahedral core was studied through analysis of the PdAu24(PET)18 cluster. The PdAu24(PET)18 cluster exhibited significantly lower superatom-based emission intensity, and resulting global PL yield, relative to the Au25(PET)18 cluster. Land g-factor determination and electronic-vibrational coupling analyses suggests that the observation of low emission yield was related to strong coupling to nonradiative channels due to emission from high angular momenta states. The increase in angular momenta was related to spin-orbit coupling interactions between the Pd dopant and surrounding Au icosahedron. Next, the carrier dynamics of the Au25(PET)18 cluster were compared to different sized clusters, namely Au20(PET)15 and Au38(SC12H25)24. Cluster-specific, temperature-dependent PL intensity behaviors were related to size-dependent fine structure energies. In particular, the observation of increased PL intensity for the Au20(PET)15 was related to fine structure resonant, vibrationally mediated energy transfer. The final portion of this thesis focuses on understanding electronic coupling dynamics in MPC dimers. Samples of Au20(PET)15 MPC dimers were formed utilizing a n-ethylene glygol dimethyl ether (n-glyme) molecular bridge. Femtosecond time-resolved transient absorption (fsTA) spectroscopy was utilized to probe the excited-state dynamics for Au20(PET)15-n-glyme-Au20(PET)15 dimers. Effective intercluster separation was controlled using variable length n-glyme, where n = di-, tri-, and tetra-, bridging molecules. A separation-dependent dimer-specific carrier relaxation channel was observed with time constants of 130 20, 60 8, and 36 6 ps for the n = di-, tri- and tetra- dimers, respectively. The increased relaxation time has been attributed to intercluster separation-dependent stabilization of dimer-specific relaxation states. This dimer-specific relaxation channel was further investigated using VTVH -MCPL spectroscopy. VTVH analysis of the dimer PL quantified primarily B-term contributions to the differential response indicating strong coupling between degenerate states. This assignment was in agreement with previous VTVH -MCD studies of polynuclear Au(I)-centered complexes. The results implicated coupling between degenerate Au(I) atoms located in the inorganic semiring units of each cluster as the primary source for emergent dimer carrier dynamics.

Book Description :

Small metal clusters exhibit physical and chemical properties that differ substantially from those of corresponding bulk metals. Furthermore, the properties of clusters vary greatly depending on the number of constituent atoms. Metal clusters with these characteristics currently attract great attention in a wide range of fields as new nanoscale functional materials. In recent years, the techniques to precisely synthesize metal clusters protected with organic ligands and polymers with atomic precision have advanced dramatically. In addition, substantial knowledge of the size-specific physical/chemical properties exhibited by these metal clusters has been accumulated. In this chapter, we describe the precise synthesis methods of the most studied thiolate (SR)-protected gold clusters Aun(SR)m and their heteroatom-substituted clusters (alloy clusters).

Book Description :

This book discusses current techniques and instrumentation for cluster chemistry. It addresses both the experimental and theoretical aspects of gas-phase metal cluster reactivities, especially those pertaining to pollution removal, energetic reactions and corrosion and anticorrosion. These metal cluster systems have attracted enormous interest as they display a completely new class of physical, chemical, electronic, magnetic and catalytic properties. As these properties change with size and composition, it can thus be understood how their nature evolves from atoms to bulk solids. The book offers readers a basic understanding of the structural chemistry and reactivity of metal clusters in both gas-phase and wet chemistry. Further, the lessons they learn here regarding metal cluster chemistry will prepare researchers for the study of condensed phase dynamics that pertain to wet chemical synthesis, soft-landing deposition and cluster assembly.

Book Description :

The series Structure and Bonding publishes critical reviews on topics of research concerned with chemical structure and bonding. The scope of the series spans the entire Periodic Table and addresses structure and bonding issues associated with all of the elements. It also focuses attention on new and developing areas of modern structural and theoretical chemistry such as nanostructures, molecular electronics, designed molecular solids, surfaces, metal clusters and supramolecular structures. Physical and spectroscopic techniques used to determine, examine and model structures fall within the purview of Structure and Bonding to the extent that the focus is on the scientific results obtained and not on specialist information concerning the techniques themselves. Issues associated with the development of bonding models and generalizations that illuminate the reactivity pathways and rates of chemical processes are also relevant. The individual volumes in the series are thematic. The goal of each volume is to give the reader, whether at a university or in industry, a comprehensive overview of an area where new insights are emerging that are of interest to a larger scientific audience. Thus each review within the volume critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the volume as a whole. The most significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years should be presented using selected examples to illustrate the principles discussed. A description of the physical basis of the experimental techniques that have been used to provide the primary data may also be appropriate, if it has not been covered in detail elsewhere. The coverage need not be exhaustive in data, but should rather be conceptual, concentrating on the new principles being developed that will allow the reader, who is not a specialist in the area covered, to understand the data presented. Discussion of possible future research directions in the area is welcomed. Review articles for the individual volumes are invited by the volume editors. Readership: research scientists at universities or in industry, graduate students Special offer For all customers who have a standing order to the print version of Structure and Bonding, we offer free access to the electronic volumes of the Series published in the current year via SpringerLink.

Book Description :

The selective encapsulation of metal clusters within zeolites can be used to prepare clusters that are uniform in diameter and to protect them against sintering and contact with feed impurities, while concurrently allowing active sites to select reactants based on their molecular size, thus conferring enzyme-like specificity to chemical catalysis. The apertures in small and medium-pore zeolites preclude the use of post-synthetic protocols to encapsulate the relevant metal precursors because cationic or anionic precursors with their charge-balancing double layer and gaseous complexes cannot diffuse through their windows or channels. We have developed general strategies to encapsulate metal clusters within small-pore zeolites by using metal precursors stabilized by ammonia or organic amine ligands, which stabilize metal precursors against their premature precipitation at the high temperature and pH conditions required for the hydrothermal synthesis of the target zeolite structures and favor interactions between metal precursors and incipient aluminosilicate nuclei during the self-assembly of microporous frameworks. When synthesis temperatures were higher than 400 K, available ligands were unable to prevent the premature precipitation of the metal precursors. In such cases, encapsulation was achieved instead via interzeolite transformations after successfully encapsulating metal precursors or clusters via post-synthesis exchange or ligand protection into parent zeolites and subsequently converting them into the target structures while retaining the encapsulated clusters or precursors. Such strategies led to the successful selective encapsulation of a wide range of metal clusters (Pt, Pd, Ru, Rh, Ir, Re, and Ag) within small-pore (SOD (sodalite), LTA (Linde type A (zeolite A)), GIS (gismondine), and ANA (analcime)) and medium-pore (MFI (ZSM-5)) zeolites. These protocols provide novel and diverse mechanism-based strategies for the design of catalysts with protected active sites. We have demonstrated the selectivity of the encapsulation processes by combining transmission electron microscopy and chemisorptive titrations with rigorous catalytic assessments of the ability of these materials to catalyze reactions of small molecules, which can access the intracrystalline voids, but not of larger molecules that cannot access the metal clusters within such voids. The selective confinement of clusters also prevented their contact with sulfur compounds (e.g., thiophene and H2S), thus allowing reactions to occur at conditions that otherwise render unconfined clusters unreactive. We have also developed synthetic protocols and guiding principles, inspired by mechanistic considerations, for the synthesis of zeolites via interzeolite transformations without the use of organic structure-directing agents (OSDA). More specifically, we have synthesized high-silica MFI (ZSM-5), CHA (chabazite), STF (SSZ-35) and MTW (ZSM-12) zeolites from FAU (faujasite) or BEA (beta) parent materials. Structures with lower framework densities (FAU or BEA) were successfully transformed into thermodynamically-favored, more stable structures with higher framework densities (MFI, CHA, STF, and MTW); to date, target materials with higher Si/Al ratios (Si/Al>10) have not been synthesized via interzeolite transformations without the aid of the OSDA species used to discover these zeolite structures and deemed essential up until now for their successful synthesis. Overcoming kinetic hurdles in such transformations required either the presence of common composite building units (CBU) between parent and target structures or, in their absence, the introduction of small amount of seeds of the daughter structures. The NaOH/SiO2 ratio, H2O/SiO2 ratio and Al content in reagents are used to enforce synchronization between the swelling and local restructuring within parent zeolite domains with the spalling of fragments or building units from seeds of the target structure. The pseudomorphic nature of these seed-mediated transformations, which conserve the volume occupied by the parent crystals and lead to similar size and crystal shape in products, reflect incipient nucleation of target structures occurring at the outer regions of the parent domains and lead to the formation of mesoporosity as a natural consequence of the space-conserving nature of these structural changes and of the higher density of the daughter frameworks. The synthesis mechanism and the guidelines developed enable us to enforce conditions required for the formation of zeolites that previously required OSDA species for their synthesis, thus expanding to a significant extent the diversity of zeolite frameworks that are accessible via these synthesis protocols and providing potential savings in the time and cost involved in the synthesis of some of these zeolite structures.

Book Description :

Supra-materials Nanoarchitectonics provides the latest information on design at the nanoscale, presenting a range of the new challenges that arise as the manipulation techniques that work at the macro- and micro-scale do not work at the nanoscale. The term nanoarchitectonics, coined by Japan's National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), describes the organized interactions required at the nanoscale, replacing the traditional structure-building approach used in materials design. Nanoarchitectonics approaches material design via a profound understanding of the interactions between individual nanostructures and their organization. As the nanoarchitectonics paradigm fits well with the discipline of supramolecular chemistry, this book brings together these two approaches to demonstrate the potential of supramolecular nanoarchitectonics in the development of new materials, both at the nano- and macro-scale. Written by the team that coined the term nanoarchitectonics, providing a detailed explanation of the approach and techniques of supramolecular nanoarchitectonics Demystifies materials design via organized interactions at the nanoscale Explains this new paradigm via practical scientific techniques

Book Description :

Science and art are increasingly interconnected in the activities of the study and conservation of works of art. Science plays a key role in cultural heritage, from developing new analytical techniques for studying the art, to investigating new ways of preserving the materials for the future. For example, high resolution multispectral examination of paintings allows art historians to view underdrawings barely visible before, while the use of non-invasive and micro-sampling analytical techniques allow scientists to identify pigments and binders that help art conservators in their work. It also allows curators to understand more about how the artwork was originally painted. Through a series of case studies written by scientists together with art historians, archaeologists and conservators, Science and Art: The Painted Surface demonstrates how the cooperation between science and humanities can lead to an increased understanding of the history of art and to better techniques in conservation. The examples used in the book cover paintings from ancient history, Renaissance, modern, and contemporary art, belonging to the artistic expressions of world regions from the Far East to America and Europe. Topics covered include the study of polychrome surfaces from pre-Columbian and medieval manuscripts, the revelation of hidden images below the surface of Van Gogh paintings and conservation of acrylic paints in contemporary art. Presented in an easily readable form for a large audience, the book guides readers into new areas uncovered by the link between science and art. The book features contributions from leading institutions across the globe including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Getty Conservation Institute; Opificio delle Pietre Dure, Firenze; National Gallery of London; Tate Britain; Warsaw Academy of Fine Art and the National Gallery of Denmark as well as a chapter covering the Thangka paintings by Nobel Prize winner Richard Ernst.

Book Description :

A series of thiol-protected metal nanoclusters of the formula Ag4M2(DMSA)4 (M=Ni, Pd, Pt) was synthesized. These clusters were synthesized by wet chemical methods and identified by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. The clusters were characterized by UV-visible spectroscopy, tandem mass spectrometry, computational methods, and single crystal x-ray diffractometry. These structural characterization techniques revealed that the series of clusters was isostructural as well as isoelectronic, meaning that any change in the cluster properties will predominately be the result of the shift in identity of the metal M down the periodic table. The properties of the cluster series as a whole were evaluated in terms of electronic structure and stability. A stepwise blue shift was found as the metal M was substituted down the periodic table. The stability of the clusters was found to be somewhat low when M=Ni, but higher for M=Pt and M=Pd, with the palladium cluster exhibiting exceptionally high stability. The synthesis of the cluster series significantly expands the diversity of existing thiol-protected nanoclusters, an important class of compounds. The observations of the shift in properties enhances the general understanding of the structure property relationships of these clusters, potentially helping to promote more rationally designed cluster synthesis in the future. During attempts to synthesize another cluster series to confirm the observed trends, a novel effect of nickel on an existing cluster synthesis was observed. The addition of nickel to this existing synthesis did not create bimetallic clusters, but instead simply altered the size of the monometallic silver clusters synthesized. The origins of this effect were evaluated and may serve as another mechanism of size control in future cluster syntheses.
