Title: Organic polymer chemistry in the context of novel processes

Abstract

This paper was written to shed light on a series of what some have stated are not so obvious connections that link polymer synthesis in supercritical CO 2 to cancer treatment and vaccines, nonflammable polymer electrolytes for lithium ion batteries, and 3D printing. In telling this story, we also attempt to show the value of versatility in applying one’s primary area of expertise to address pertinent questions in science and in society. In this Outlook, we attempted to identify key factors to enable a versatile and nimble research effort to take shape in an effort to influence diverse fields and have a tangible impact in the private sector through the translation of discoveries into the marketplace.

  • In this paper, treatment of N-ethyl-benzo[f]quinolium (ebq) iodide and CuI with excess KI afforded an unusual coordination polymer [(ebq){sub 2}(Cu{sub 3}I{sub 4})(CuI{sub 2})]{sub n} (1). 1 crystallizes in tetragonal system, space group P4(2)bc with cell parameters of a=23.2040(6)A, c=6.7393(3)A, V=3628.6(2)A{sup 3}, Z=8, D{sub c}=2.622g/c{sup 3}, R{sub 1}=0.0447 and wR{sub 2}=0.0974. A highly interesting feature of 1 is its presence of mixed types of chains [(Cu{sub 3}I{sub 4}){sub n}{sup -} and (CuI{sub 2}){sub n}{sup -} chain] in one crystal lattice based on supramolecular self-assembly directed by cations. The infinite chains (Cu{sub 3}I{sub 4}){sub n}{sup -} and (CuI{sub 2}){sub n}{sup -} inmore » 1 could be described as the edge-sharing arrangement of CuI{sub 4} tetrahedron. Furthermore, IR, EA, UV-Vis, thermal analysis and optical limiting measurements were adopted to characterize polymer 1. The optical limiting experiment shows that the present polymer exhibits a large optical limiting capacity.« less
  • A new organic-inorganic hybrid cobalt(II)-molybdenum(V) phosphate polymer incorporating piperazine (pip) (H{sub 2}pip){sub 3}[Co{sub 3}Mo{sub 12}O{sub 24}(OH){sub 6}(PO{sub 4}){sub 8}(H{sub 1.5}pip){sub 4}].5(H{sub 2}O), was prepared under hydrothermal conditions. As revealed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies, the material is modular, built from a secondary building block composed of two anionic hexameric polyoxomolybdophosphate [Mo{sub 6}O{sub 12}(OH){sub 3}(PO{sub 4}){sub 4}]{sup 9-} moieties, bridged by a central octahedral Co{sup 2+} centre. The sandwich-type {l_brace}Co[Mo{sub 6}O{sub 12}(OH){sub 3}(PO{sub 4}){sub 4}]{sub 2}{r_brace}{sup 16-} dimers are connected via tetrahedral Co{sup 2+} metal centres, forming an infinite one-dimensional polymer. The compound constitutes the first example of a reduced sandwich-typemore » cobalt-molybdenum phosphate in which the organic moiety (pip) is effectively coordinated to the inorganic backbone of the polymer, in this case via the tetrahedrally coordinated Co{sup 2+} centres. The magnetic behaviour of this material was investigated in the temperature range 4-298 K.« less
