A set of BODIPY-carboranyl dyads synthesized by a Sonogashira cross-coupling reaction, where different C-substituted ortho- and meta-carboranyl fragments have been linked to a BODIPY fluorophore is described.
Perovskite nanocrystals (NCs) have revolutionized optoelectronic devices because of their versatile optical properties. However, controlling and extending these functionalities often requires a light management strategy involving additional processing steps.
Establishing the rather complex correlation between the structure and the charge transfer in organic–organic heterostructures is of utmost importance for organic electronics and requires spatially resolved structural, chemical, and electronic details.
One of the driving forces of carcinogenesis in humans is the aberrant activation of receptors; consequently, one of the most promising mechanisms for cancer treatment is receptor inhibition by chemotherapy.
Electroresistance is the functional property of resistive switching devices exploited in data storage and computing.
Semitransparent organic photovoltaics (OPV) possess unique properties that make them highly appealing for their integration into semitransparent architectonic elements such as windows or glazings. In order to provide sufficient transparency, non-opaque electrodes and thin photoactive layers are typically used, thus limiting the light-harvesting capacity.
Raman spectroscopy is one of the most extended experimental techniques to investigate thin-layered 2D materials. For a complete understanding and modeling of the Raman spectrum of a novel 2D material, it is often necessary to combine the experimental investigation to density functional theory calculations.
A review of the present status, recent enhancements, and applicability of the Siesta program is presented. Since its debut in the mid-1990s, Siesta’s flexibility, efficiency, and free distribution have given advanced materials simulation capabilities to many groups worldwide.
We report an investigation of the combined structural and electronic properties of the bronze Na1.5(PO2)4(WO3)20.
Two anthracenyl–styrenyl-m-carborane triads (one non-iodinated on B, 3, and one iodinated, 4) were synthesized and characterized to be further linked to octavinylsilsesquioxane (OVS) via cross-metathesis, giving rise to the corresponding hybrid materials 5 and 6.
Recent advances in nanowire synthesis have enabled the realization of crystal phases that in bulk are attainable only under extreme conditions, i.e., high temperature and/or high pressure.
Spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP) is a fundamental concept in neurobiology. Briefly, the relative timing of two neuron spikes reinforces or weakens the synapse between them, so that events caused by another should trigger spikes in a particular time order.
Near any phase transition order parameters of materials are strongly coupled to materials’ properties. Metamagnetic materials show phase transition between two magnetically ordered phases.
Strongly correlated perovskite oxides are a class of materials with fascinating intrinsic physical functionalities due to the interplay of charge, spin, orbital ordering, and lattice degrees of freedom.
Organic semiconductor materials exhibit a great potential for the realization of large-area solution-processed devices able to directly detect high-energy radiation. However, only few works investigated on the mechanism of ionizing radiation detection in this class of materials, so far.
o-C2B10H12 isomerizes to m-C2B10H12 upon heating at 400 °C. Deboronation in o-C2B10H12 is a relatively easy process, whereas it is more difficult in m-C2B10H12. These two experimental facts indicate that m-C2B10H12 is thermodynamically more stable than o-C2B10H12.
Biofuels are considered sustainable and renewable alternatives to conventional fossil fuels. Biobutanol has recently emerged as an attractive option compared to bioethanol and biodiesel, but a significant challenge in its production lies in the separation stage.
Fluorescent organic nanoparticles (FONs) are emerging as an attractive alternative to the well-established fluorescent inorganic nanoparticles or small organic dyes. Their proper design allows one to obtain biocompatible probes with superior brightness and high photostability, although usually affected by low colloidal stability.
Ruthenium complexes of carboranyl ligands offer the possibility of dual action (chemo + radiotherapy) that might result in significant clinical benefits. In that frame, we describe herein the development of ruthenium–carboranyl complexes bearing bipyridyl derivatives.
Epitaxial ferroelectric HfO2 films are the most suitable to investigate intrinsic properties of the material and for prototyping emerging devices. Ferroelectric Hf0.5Zr0.5O2(111) films were epitaxially stabilized on La2/3Sr1/3MnO3(001) electrodes.
Harvesting environmental energy to generate electricity is a key scientific and technological endeavour of our time. Photovoltaic conversion and electromechanical transduction are two common energy-harvesting mechanisms based on, respectively, semiconducting junctions and piezoelectric insulators.
Due to the ubiquitous presence of lithium‐ion batteries in portable applications, and their implementation in the transportation and large‐scale energy sectors, the future cost and availability of lithium is currently under debate.
We report a study where Car–Parrinello molecular dynamics simulations and variable-temperature (30–300 K) 1H spin–lattice relaxation time experiments nicely complement each other.
The different occupancy of electronic orbitals, the so-called orbital polarization, is a key parameter determining electric and magnetic properties of materials.
Corneal trauma and ulcerations are leading causes of corneal blindness around the world. These lesions require attentive medical monitoring since improper healing or infection has serious consequences in vision and quality of life.
