Title: An Organometallic Future in Green and Energy Chemistry?

Abstract

The title topic is reviewed with selected examples taken from recent work, such as: the 'hydrogen borrowing' amine alkylation by alcohols; the dehydrogenative coupling of amine and alcohol to give amide; Ru complexes as solar cell photosensitizers; Ir organometallics as water oxidation catalyst precursors and as OLED emitters; as well as recent hydrogen storage strategies involving catalytic dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane and of organic heterocycles.

  • The title topic is reviewed with selected examples taken from recent work, such as: the 'hydrogen borrowing' amine alkylation by alcohols; the dehydrogenative coupling of amine and alcohol to give amide; Ru complexes as solar cell photosensitizers; Ir organometallics as water oxidation catalyst precursors and as OLED emitters; as well as recent hydrogen storage strategies involving catalytic dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane and of organic heterocycles.
  • Synthesis, precipitation, and isolation of dicyclopentadienyl(fulvalene)dihydridomolybdenum are described. The compound was used in reaction studies involving the addition of carbon monoxide and deprotonation with n-butyllithium. Data for elemental analysis, ir spectral and NMR(in toluene-d) spectral analysis are reported for the title compound and its reaction products.
  • Nanotechnology is a paradigm for emerging technologies and much talked about area of science. It is the technology of future and has revolutionized all fields of medicine, agriculture, environmental and electronics by providing abilities that would never have previously dreamt of. It is a unique platform of multidisciplinary approaches integrating diverse fields of engineering, biology, physics and chemistry. In recent years, nanotechnology has seen the fastest pace in its all aspects of synthesis methodologies and wide applications in all areas of medicine, agricultural, environmental, and electronics. It is the impact of nanotechnology approaches that new fields of nanomedicine, cancer nanotechnology,more » nanorobotics and nanoelectronics have been emerged and are flourishing with the advances in this expanding field. Nanotechnology holds the potential for pervasive and promising applications and getting significant attention and financial aids also. Although there are different definitions of nanotechnology, in broad prospective, nanotechnology can be described as designing or exploiting materials at nanometer dimensions (i.e., one dimension less than 100 nanometers). At nanoscale, substances have a larger surface area to volume ratio than conventional materials which is the prime reason behind their increased level of reactivity, improved and size tunable magnetic, optical and electrical properties and more toxicity also.« less
