  • Nanoporous metal foams are prepared by ignition of high nitrogen transition metal complexes. The ammonium salts of iron(III) tris[bi(tetrazolato)-amine], cobalt(III) tris(bi(tetrazolato)amine), and high nitrogen compounds of copper and silver were prepared as loose powders, pressed into pellets and wafers, and ignited under an inert atmosphere to form nanoporous metal foam monoliths having very high surface area and very low density.
  • A robust mesoporous metal-organic framework comprising a hafnium-based metal-organic framework and a single-site zirconium-benzyl species is provided. The hafnium, zirconium-benzyl metal-organic framework is useful as a catalyst for the polymerization of an alkene.
  • Electrochemical cells having alkali metal anodes, e.g., lithium batteries, are described which contain electrolytically active alkali metal salt complexes including haloorganometallic alkali metal salt complexes having the formula ZMR/sub n/K/sub i/, wherein Z is an alkali metal, M is a metal selected from the group consisting of Zn, Cd, B, Al, Ga, In, Tl, Sn (stannous), P and As, the Rs are specified haloorganic radicals, the Xs are selected from various halides, alkyls, aryls, alkaryls, and aralkyls, and n and i are numerical values the sum of which is equal to one plus the valence of the metal M, subjectmore » to the proviso that, if n is zero, at least one X is an organic radical. Rechargeable, high-energy-density electrochemical cells containing an anode having an alkali metal as its active material, a cathode having as its active material a transition metal chalcogenide, and in electrolyte composition of the above-described type are also described. 7 tables.« less
  • Transition metal complexes of Gable porphyrins are disclosed having two porphyrin rings connected through a linking group, and having on the porphyrin rings electron-withdrawing groups, such as halogen, nitro or cyano. These complexes are useful as catalysts for the oxidation of organic compounds, e.g. alkanes.
  • Transition metal complexes of meso-haloalkylporphyrins, wherein the haloalkyl groups contain 2 to 8 carbon atoms have been found to be highly effective catalysts for oxidation of alkanes and for the decomposition of hydroperoxides. 7 figs.
