Fluorescence-based detection technique using coordination polymer has been considered an attractive alternative over conventional approaches. Herein, a new luminescent Zinc(II) coordination polymer, [Zn(4-ABPT)(NIPA)(H2O)], SSICG-5, is synthesized...
Density Functional Theory Guided Investigation of Ligand‐Induced Neptunyl‐Neptunyl Interactions
Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt
Counterions in solution influence the formation of T-shaped and Diamond-shaped actinyl-actinyl interactions within pentavalent neptunium. Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations indicate that the ΔG to form hydrated T- and D-shaped forms are not spontaneous, but become so with the addition of the carboxylate ligands.
Actinyl-actinyl interactions are particularly prevalent for the pentavalent neptunyl cation (Np(V)O2)+ where these interactions appear either as a T- or D-shape (diamond-shape). T-shaped interactions have been previously identified in high concentration Np(V) solutions containing simple anions (NO3 −, ClO4 −, Cl−) whereas D-shaped have only been isolated in the solid-state in the presence of carboxylate ligands. In this study, Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations were paired with Raman spectroscopy to evaluate the formation of D-shaped interactions in the presence of aliphatic (R=H (formate), CH3 (acetate), CH2CH3 (propionate)) and aromatic (R=C6H5 (benzoate), C6H4OH (4-hydroxybenzoate), C5H4N (isonicotinate)) carboxylate ligands. DFT studies indicate that the ΔG to form hydrated T- and D-shaped forms are not spontaneous but become so with the addition of the carboxylate ligands. Raman spectra of the Np(V) carboxylate solutions contained vibrational modes associated with the D-shaped interactions, but spectral changes observed over time indicate a dynamic system. Crystallization experiments from the Np(V) carboxylate systems confirmed the presence of D-shaped dimers for the aromatic carboxylates, suggesting that the choice of the anion in solution favors actinyl-actinyl interactions even at low concentrations (≤20 mM) of Np(V).Zum Volltext
