The Trigonal Prism in Coordination Chemistry.

Summary of "The Trigonal Prism in Coordination Chemistry."

Herein we analyze the accessibility of the trigonal-prismatic geometry to metal complexes with different electron configurations, as well as the ability of several hexadentate ligands to favor that coordination polyhedron. Our study combines i) a structural database analysis of the occurrence of the prismatic geometry throughout the transition-metal series, ii) a qualitative molecular orbital analysis of the distortions expected for a trigonal-prismatic geometry, and iii) a computational study of complexes of several transition-metal ions with different hexadentate ligands. Also the tendency of specific electron configurations to present a cis bond-stretch Jahn-Teller distortion is analyzed.

Identifying Coordination Geometries of Metal Aquaions in Water: Application to the Case of Lanthanoid and Actinoid Hydrates.

The angular distribution function (ADF) associated to the oxygen-metal ion-oxygen angle (OMO) of several trivalent lanthanoid and actinoid aquaions has been used to identify the most probable coordina...

Trigonal-Bipyramidal Coordination in First Ammoniates of ZnF2: ZnF2(NH3)3 and ZnF2(NH3)2.

Single crystals of ZnF2(NH3)3 and ZnF2(NH3)2 were obtained under ammonothermal conditions (250 °C, 196 MPa and 500 °C, 136 MPa). Upon thermal decomposition of both ZnF2(NH3)3 and ZnF2(NH3)2, a micro...

Structural analysis of β-Prism lectin from Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott.

The Mannose-binding β-Prism Colocasia esculenta lectin (β-PCL) was purified from tubers using ion exchange chromatography. The purified β-PCL appeared as a single band of ∼12kDa on SDS-PAGE. β-P...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.

Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.

Chemistry dealing with the composition and preparation of agents having PHARMACOLOGIC ACTIONS or diagnostic use.

Field of chemistry pertaining to the study of inorganic compounds or ions and their interactions with biological ligands at the molecular level.

The branch of chemistry dealing with detection (qualitative) and determination (quantitative) of substances. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)
