Summary of "Solid-State Electrochemistry of Copper(I) Coordination Polymers Containing Tetrafluoroborate Anions."

Host-guest materials based on coordination polymers (CPs) are currently emerging as potential candidates for battery applications. In this context, we describe the preparation of three-dimensional network structures containing BF anions and water molecules in the one-dimensional (1D) channels via hydrothermal reactions between Cu(BF) and 4,4'-bipyridine or 1,2-di-4-pyridylethylene. A systematic characterization of the obtained CPs using single-crystal X-ray diffraction, X-ray absorption fine structure, and an electrochemical test was performed. The results showed that the BF anions were electrochemically reduced to BF in the cavities of the CPs, with concomitant elimination of a leaving fluoride at room temperature. Using this electrochemical property, a prototype battery, in which the CPs act as the anode and graphite as the cathode, was demonstrated. The cell exhibited a practical discharge potential of ∼1.5 V. This constitutes the first demonstration of CPs showing electrochemical B-F bond activation in the 1D channels and rocking-chair-type fluoride insertion and extraction by changes in the electric potential.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Unstable isotopes of copper that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Cu atoms with atomic weights 58-62, 64, and 66-68 are radioactive copper isotopes.

P-type ATPases which transport copper ions across membranes in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. They possess a conserved CYSTEINE-HISTIDINE-SERINE (CPx) amino acid motif within their transmembrane helices that functions in cation translocation and catalytic activation, and an N-terminal copper-binding CxxC motif that regulates enzyme activity. They play essential roles in intracellular copper homeostasis through regulating the uptake, efflux and storage of copper ions, and in cuproprotein biosynthesis.

The quality or state of being wettable or the degree to which something can be wet. This is also the ability of any solid surface to be wetted when in contact with a liquid whose surface tension is reduced so that the liquid spreads over the surface of the solid.

Propylene or propene polymers. Thermoplastics that can be extruded into fibers, films or solid forms. They are used as a copolymer in plastics, especially polyethylene. The fibers are used for fabrics, filters and surgical sutures.

A multi-copper blood FERROXIDASE involved in iron and copper homeostasis and inflammation.
