    Cp*Co(CO)I2 (Cp* = 5-C5Me5), [(6-arene)RuCl2]2 (arene = p-cymene, hexamethylbenzene), and [Cp*MCl2]2 (M = Rh, Ir) react with -amino amides and various peptide esters to give the N,O-chelate complexes [Cp*(I)Co - NH2C(H)(R1)C(NHR2)-O]+ (1), [(6-arene)(Cl)Ru - NH2C(H)(R1)C(NHR2)O]+ (2), and [CP*(Cl)M - NH2CH2C(NHR)O]+ (M = Rh, Ir) (5, in solution), respectively. In the solid state the ligands are 1N-bonded in 5. By deprotonation of the peptide bond in 2 and 5 the neutral N, N-chelate complexes (6-arene)(Cl)Ru - NH2C(H)(R1)C(O)-2 (6) and Cp*(Cl)M - NH2C(H)(R1)C(O)NR2 (M = Rh, Ir) (7) have been obtained. Glycinenitrile is 1-bonded in (6-p-cymene)(Cl)2Ru(NH2CH2CN) (3) and Cp*(Cl)2Rh(NH2CH2CN) (4). Double deprotonated triglycine methyl ester is a N,N,N-tridentate ligand in (6-C6Me6)Ru(NH2CH2C(O)NCH2C(O)-NCH2CO2Me) (8). The anions of L-asparagine and of aspartame (L-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester) give the complexes 9-12 with tridentate O,N,O- or O,N,N-chelate ligands. The crystal structures of 1d (L = glyglyOEt), 5a (L = glycinamide), 6e (L = glyglyOEt), and 7k (L = glyglyglyOEt) have been determined by X-ray structural analysis

    Developing Scenarios for Product Longevity and Sufficiency

    This paper explores the narrative of peoples’ relationships with products as a window on understanding the types of innovation that may inform a culture of sufficiency. The work forms part of the 'Business as Unusual: Designing Products with Consumers in the Loop' [BaU] project, funded as part of the UK EPSRC-ESRC RECODE network (RECODE, 2016) that aims to explore the potential of re-distributed manufacturing (RdM) in a context of sustainability. This element of the project employed interviews, mapping and workshops as methods to investigate the relationship between people and products across the product lifecycle. A focus on product longevity and specifically the people-product interactions is captured in conversations around product maintenance and repair. In exploring ideas of ‘broken’ we found different characteristics of, and motivations for, repair. Mapping these and other product-people interactions across the product lifecycle indicated where current activity is, who owns such activity (i.e. organisation or individual) and where gaps in interactions occur. These issues were explored further in a workshop which grouped participants to look at products from the perspective of one of four scenarios; each scenario represented either short or long product lifespans and different types of people engagement in the design process. The findings help give shape to new scenarios for designing sufficiency-based social models of material flows

    Coordination Chemistry of rr-Bonded Cyclopentadienyl Chalcogeno Ethers, I. - Chelate Complexes of Pentakis(methylthio)cymantrene with Metal Carbonyls [C5(SMe)5]Mn(CO)3 (1) reacts with W(CO)5(THF), Mo(CO)4(C7H8), Cr(CO)3(NCMe)3, and Re(CO)4(-C3H5)/HBF4 to yield the monochelate complexes [[C5(SMe)5]Mn(C0)3][M(CO)4] (M = W: 2; M = Mo: 3) and the dichelate complexes [[C5(SMe)5]Mn(CO)3][M(C0)4]2 (M = W: 4; M = Cr: 5; M = Re BFF4 : 6). The reaction with Mo(CO)3(p-xylene) in THF leads via unstable intermediates, which contain coordinated THF, to a mixture of 3 and [[C5(SMe)5]Mn(CO)3][Mo(CO)4]2 (7). The structures of 3 and 4 in the crystal have been determined by X-ray diffraction methods

    In the structure of the title complex, [Zn(C8H14N6S2)(C5H5N)], the ZnII ion has a pseudo-square-pyramidal coordination environment and is displaced by 0.490 Å from the plane of best fit defined by the bis­(thio­semicarbazonate) N2S2 donor atoms. Chains sustained by intermolecular N-H...N and N-H...S hydrogen-bonding interactions extend parallel to [10-1]

    Get PDF
    The title co-crystal, C9H9NO2·C6H6O2, is composed of one 2,6-diacetylpyridine molecule and one resorcinol molecule as the asymmetric unit. In the 2,6-diacetylpyridine molecule, the two carbonyl groups are antiperiplanar to the pyridine N atom. In the crystal, the 2,6-diacetylpyridine and resorcinol molecules are connected by two O-H...O hydrogen bonds, forming planar chains of alternating components running along [120]

    Tetragonal to Orthorhombic Transition of GdFeAsO Studied by Single-Crystal Synchrotron X-Ray Diffraction

    Full text link
    A study of the tetragonal to orthorhombic phase transition of GdFeAsO is presented. Planes of the reciprocal space were reconstructed form single-crystal synchrotron X-ray diffraction data. By cooling below the structural transition temperature splitting of the Bragg reflections was observed corresponding to four different twin domain orientations. A model was developed to quantify the distortion of the lattice from the position of the splitted reflections relative to each other. Constrained 2D-Cauchy fits of several splitted reflections provided positions of the reflections. The influence of the structural distortion was detectable already above the structural transition temperature hinting at fluctuations in the tetragonal phase.Comment: 6 pages, 6 figure

    From flesh and bone to bronze and stone : celebrating and commemorating the life of Queen Victoria in the British world 1897-1930

    Get PDF
    Why is it that if you walk through many of the cities of the United Kingdom, Australia, India, Canada, New Zealand, or any part of what used to be the British world you will usually find at least one and sometimes more statues of Queen Victoria? In the last years of her life Queen Victoria enjoyed a special place in the hearts and minds of people across the world. At the turn of the twentieth century, Victoria was a celebrity above all others, charismatic, immensely popular and an almost untouchable icon. Strangely, Victoria gained this lofty status through her association with two very different, and it would seem conflicting ideas - imperialism and domesticity. This thesis investigates just how Queen Victoria gained that level of celebrity and then how it turned her from flesh and bone to bronze and stone in Britain and across the British world from 1897 to 1930. It argues that two events in particular are the key to this transformation. The first, the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of 1897, transformed her in the eyes of the public into the representative figure of an entire age. The second, her death and funeral in early 1901, had such a public impact that it triggered the numerous commemorative efforts at home and abroad in the many years that followed. No work published to date has looked in detail at the historical significance of the celebration and monumental commemoration of Queen Victoria in the context of British and British imperial identity. This thesis aims to fill this gap in the work done so far on the imagery of Queen Victoria while also breaking new ground in considering just how her iconic status came into existence
