  • A low band gap iron sulfide hybrid semiconductor with unique layered structure and unusual iron coordination exhibits significantly reduced thermal conductivity.
  • Under solvothermal conditions, the reactions of Co{sup II}/Zn{sup II} ions with bent ligand 3-(pyridin-4-yl)-5-(pyrazin-2-yl)-1H-1,2,4-triazole (4-Hpzpt) afford two compounds {[M(4-pzpt)_2] guest}{sub n} (guest=H{sub 2}O, M=Co{sup II} (1), Zn{sup II} (2)). Both compounds are the thermally and hydrolytically robust 4-connected 3D NbO framework, which formed by double helical chains to give rise to 1D hollow nanochannel with uncoordinated nitrogens completely exposed on the pore surface. Compound 1 exhibits improved N{sub 2}, CO{sub 2} and H{sub 2} uptake capacities, while compound 2 displays the strong luminescent emission with obvious red shift. - Graphical abstract: Two 2-fold interpenetrated NbO-type MOFs with 1D nanochannel weremore » synthesized.

  • The authors have measured the electrical conductivity of (Mg{sub 0.76}Fe{sub 0.24})SiO{sub 3} perovskite and of an assemblage of (Mg{sub 0.89}Fe{sub 0.11})SiO{sub 3} perovskite + (Mg{sub 0.70}Fe{sub 0.30})O magnesiowustite at pressures of 45-80 GPa and temperatures from 295 to 3,600 K. The apparent activation energy for electrical conduction is 0.24 ({plus minus} 0.10) eV for the perovskite and 0.20 ({plus minus} 0.08) eV for the perovskite + magnesiowustite assemblage. Comparing the present results with those derived previously for Fe-poor samples, they find that the electrical conductivities of both the silicate perovskite and the perovskite + magnesiowustite assemblage depend strongly on ironmore » content. Thus the electrical conductivity distribution inside the Earth could provide an important constraint in modeling the composition of the lower mantle.« less
  • This paper presents a thorough investigation of the radiation electrical conductivity of an iron-containing block copolymer in which the iron tricarbonyl fragments are built into the main chain of the polymer. The investigations were carried out with a DST-30 poly (styrenebutadiene) block copolymer (30 mass % styrene) and with iron tricarbonyl pi-complexes of this polymer DST-Fe (CO)/sub 3/. The iron tricarbonyl pi-complexes were obtained by reacting the block copolymer with iron dodecacarbonyl in a benzene medium with 10% ethanol in a stream of argon at 80 C. It was found that introduction of iron tricarbonyl into the DST-30 copolymer affectsmore » practically all properties of its nonstationary radiation electrical conductivity (NRE). The role of the rapid component of NRE increases with increasing Fe (CO)/sub 3/ content, while the decrease of the delayed component is somewhat slowed down.« less
