Vorotnikova, N. A., Alekseev, A. Y., Vorotnikov, Y. A., Evtushok, D. V., Molard, Y., Amela-Cortes, M., …Shestopalov, M. A. (2019). Octahedral molybdenum cluster as a photoactive antimicrobial additive to a fluoroplastic. Materials Science and Engineering: C, 110150. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.msec.2019.110150

Finding methods that fight bacterial infection or contamination, while minimising our reliance on antibiotics is one of the most pressing needs of this century. Although the utilisation of UV-C light and strong oxidising agents, such as bleach, are s... Read More

Octahedral chalcogenide rhenium cluster complexes with imidazole (2019)
Journal Article
Konovalov, D. I., Ivanov, A. A., Vorotnikov, Y. A., Smolentsev, A. I., Eltsov, I. V., Efremova, O. A., …Shestopalov, M. A. (2019). Octahedral chalcogenide rhenium cluster complexes with imidazole. Polyhedron, 165, 79-85. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.poly.2019.03.007

Reactions of [{Re6Q8}Br6]4−/3− (Q = S, Se) with molten imidazole lead to the formation of two new neutral cluster complexes [{Re6Q8}(imzH)4(imz)2] (imzH = imidazole). The interaction of [{Re6Q8}(imzH)4(imz)2] with hydrohalic acids resulted in cationi... Read More
