A comparison of oxide films formed on the stainless steel surface during laser and furnace heating is presented. Obtained samples were examined by optical and scanning electron microscopy. In order to characterize the optical properties, reflection spectra within the wavelength range 190–900 nm were measured with a spectrophotometer equipped with the integrating sphere for incidence angles from 0˚ to 60˚. The topology of obtained oxide films was characterized by scanning probe microscopy. Due to light interference in produced films, the coloration of treated area is observed. It was found that there is no change in the characteristic appearance of reflectance spectra at different light incidence angles, but a blue-shift occurs especially for the case of laser-induced films, which results in a visible change of surface color. This effect is associated with an interference character of originating color and features of surface relief under an oxide film.

Self-assemble nanoparticles based on polypeptides containing C-terminal luminescent Pt-cysteine complex

Scientific Reports 7, Article number: 41991, Pages 1-10

DOI: 10.1038/srep41991

The growing attention to the luminescent nanocarriers is strongly stimulated by their potential application as drug delivery systems and by the necessity to monitor their distribution in cells and tissues. In this communication we report on the synthesis of amphiphilic polypeptides bearing C-terminal phosphorescent label together with preparation of nanoparticles using the polypeptides obtained. The approach suggested is based on a unique and highly technological process where the new phosphorescent Pt-cysteine complex serves as initiator of the ring-opening polymerization of α-amino acid N-carboxyanhydrides to obtain the polypeptides bearing intact the platinum chromophore covalently bound to the polymer chain. It was established that the luminescent label retains unchanged its emission characteristics not only in the polypeptides but also in more complicated nanoaggregates such as the polymer derived amphiphilic block-copolymers and self-assembled nanoparticles. The phosphorescent nanoparticles display no cytotoxicity and hemolytic activity in the tested range of concentrations and easily internalize into living cells that makes possible in vivo cell visualization, including prospective application in time resolved imaging and drug delivery monitoring.

«Investigation of structure of GeS1.35 glasses with the use of isotopically enriched germanium and Raman scattering spectroscopy»

Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids 457 (2017) 164–168

The samples of GeS1.35 glasses were synthesized with germanium and sulfur of natural isotopic composition and with isotopically enriched germanium (72Ge, 74Ge, 76Ge). The glasses were investigated by the method of Raman scattering spectroscopy (RSS). It was shown that GeS4/2 tetrahedrons and structural units containing Ge\\Ge homobonds are present in glasses. The quantum-mechanical calculation of the frequency of fundamental vibrational modes in glass network was carried out. Their dependencies on the atomic mass of germanium were used for identification of bands in RS (Raman scattering) spectra.

Treatment of pyrazolyl acetoximes p-RC6H4{CN(H)NCCH}CH2C(Me)=NOH (R = OMe, H, F, Cl, CN, NO2) with 1 equiv of ZnCl2 leads to the complexes [ZnCl2(p-RC6H4{CN(H)NCCH}CH2C(Me)=NOH)] (81–91%). These species exhibit fluorescence at room temperature with emission maxima in the region 460–509 nm and biexponential relaxation with τ1 = 4.63–8.64 ns and τ2 = 0.482–0.955 ns, respectively. The zinc complexes were characterized by elemental analyses (C, H, N), HRESI-MS, FTIR, 1H and 13C{1H} NMR, and CP-MAS TOSS 13C{1H} NMR. In addition, two zinc complexes and one pyrazolyl acetoxime were studied by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.

Polynuclear cage-like Au(I) phosphane complexes based on S2− template: observation of multiple luminescence in coordinated polyaromatic systems

Dalton Transactions Issue 8, Pages 2516-2523

DOI: 10.1039/C6DT04126D

news76

A rational approach to the synthesis of cage-like compounds has been realized to build a new family of sulfido-phosphane Au(I) polynuclear complexes. Ditopic phosphane ligands with an extended aromatic system were used to obtain cage compounds with a clearly determined geometry. Au(I) complexes have been fully characterised in solution using spectroscopy methods, and DFT optimisation of the molecular structure gives additional arguments in favour of the suggested structural patterns. All complexes obtained are luminescent in solution and in the solid state, and display multiple emissions with an unusual combination of two phosphorescence bands and one fluorescence band. DFT calculations show that multiple emissions were mainly determined by 1IL and metal perturbed 3IL transitions. The ratio of singlet and triplet emission components depends on the distance between the ligand chromophoric centre and Au(I).
