    Résumé : A new polyoxomolybdate-based hybrid platform TBA(4)[PMo11O39-{Sn(p-C6H4I)}] is reported. The presence of a post-functionalisable iodo-aryl moiety allows the grafting of a ferrocenyl moiety onto the POM. The electrochemical characterisation shows the effect of molybdenum on the electron reservoir properties of POM-based hybrids, which are further enhanced upon the addition of an acid.

    Résumé : Tandem CH activation/arylation between unactivated arenes and aryl halides catalyzed by iron complexes that bear redox-active non-innocent bisiminopyridine ligands is reported. Similar reactions catalyzed by first-row transition metals have been shown to involve substrate-based aryl radicals, whereas our catalytic system likely involves ligand-centered radicals. Preliminary mechanistic investigations based on spectroscopic and reactivity studies, in conjunction with DFT calculations, led us to propose that the reaction could proceed through an inner-sphere CH activation pathway, which is rarely observed in the case of iron complexes. This bielectronic noble-metal-like behavior could be sustained by the redox-active non-innocent bisiminopyridine ligands.

    Résumé : Metallic palladium nanoparticles have been generated by hydrogenation with H-2 of solutions of several non organometallic Pd-II-derivatives of heteropolytungstates, at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure. These nanoparticles have been characterized by various techniques: P-31 NMR and Raman spectroscopy, TEM (including cryogenic techniques), DLS, EDX and XPS. The present strategy ruled out the presence of ligands and/or stabilizing agents other than the lacunary polyoxometalates (POMs) used. This allows the evaluation of the true efficiency of the different vacant POMs for the stabilization of the nanoparticles.

    Résumé : The synthesis, characterization, redox behavior, and photophysical properties (both at room temperature in fluid solution and at 77 K in rigid matrix) of a series of four new molecular dyads (2–5) containing Ru(II)– or Os(II)–bis(terpyridine) subunits as chromophores and various expanded pyridinium subunits as electron acceptors are reported, along with the reference properties of a formerly reported dyad, 1. The molecular dyads 2–4 have been designed to have their (potentially emissive) triplet metal-to-ligand charge-transfer (MLCT) and charge-separated (CS) states close in energy, so that excited-state equilibration between these levels can take place. Such a situation is not shared by limit cases 1 and 5. For dyad 1, forward photoinduced electron transfer (time constant, 7 ps) and subsequent charge recombination (time constant, 45 ps) are evidenced, while for dyad 5, photoinduced electron transfer is thermodynamically forbidden so that MLCT decays are the only active deactivation processes. As regards 2–4, CS states are formed from MLCT states with time constants of a few dozens of picoseconds. However, for these latter species, such experimental time constants are not due to photoinduced charge separation but are related to the excited-state equilibration times. Comparative analysis of time constants for charge recombination from the CS states based on proper thermodynamic and kinetic models highlighted that, in spite of their apparently affiliated structures, dyads 1–4 do not constitute a homologous series of compounds as far as intercomponent electron transfer processes are concerned.

    Résumé : The first systems associating in a single molecule polyoxotungstates (POTs) and photochromic organic groups have been elaborated. Using the (TBA)4[PW11O39{Sn(C6H4I)}] precursor, two hybrid organic?inorganic species where a spiropyran derivative (SP) has been covalently grafted onto a {PW11Sn} fragment via a Sonogashira coupling have been successfully obtained. Alternatively, a complex containing a silicotungstate {PW11Si2} unit connected to two spiropyran entities has been characterized. The purity of these species has been assessed using several techniques, including 1H and 31P NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and electrochemical measurements. The optical properties of the hybrid materials have been investigated both in solution and in the solid state. These studies reveal that the grafting of SPs onto POTs does not significantly alter the photochromic behavior of the organic chromophore in solution. In contrast, these novel hybrid SP?POT materials display highly effective solid-state photochromism from neutral SP molecules initially nonphotochromic in the crystalline state. The photoresponses of the SP?POT systems in the solid state strongly depend on the nature and the number of grafted SP groups.

    Résumé : Polyoxometalates (POMs) are attractive candidates for the rational design of multi-level charge-storage materials because they display reversible multi-step reduction processes in a narrow range of potentials. The functionalization of POMs allows for their integration in hybrid complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS)/molecular devices, provided that fine control of their immobilisation on various substrates can be achieved. Owing to the wide applicability of the diazonium route to surface modification, a functionalized Keggin-type POM [PW11O39Ge(p-C6H4-CC-C6H4-$\rm N+\hfill \atop 2\hfill$)]3− bearing a pending diazonium group was prepared and subsequently covalently anchored onto a glassy carbon electrode. Electron transfer with the immobilised POM was thoroughly investigated and compared to that of the free POM in solution.

    Résumé : The coordination properties of bisorganophosphonyl and bisorganoarsenyl derivatives of heteropolytungstates towards lanthanides and early-transition-metal cations were studied in organic medium. This new class of vacant polyoxometalate (POM) hybrids proved to conserve coordination sites after the grafting of the RP=O2+ or RAs=O2+ groups onto the trivacant A,α-[PW9O34]9– and B,α-[AsW9O33]9– platforms. The consequence of the presence of free P=O or As=O groups is an increase of the hardness of the coordination sites in these anions (according to Pearson's HSAB theory). Although soft divalent transition metal cations were hardly coordinated with these hybrid monovacant POMs, complexes with hard s group (Ca2+), lanthanide (La3+, Ce3+) and d0 early-transition-metal cations were obtained and studied, in particular by single crystal X-ray diffraction. Owing to the possibility of modification of the trivacant platform, the type of the grafted function (phosphonyl or arsenyl) or the organic function R, these systems offer a unique possibility to finely modulate the coordination sphere of the cation.

    Résumé : Covalent grafting of heteropolyanions hybrids B,α-[AsIIIW9O33{P(O)(CH2CH2CO2H)}2]5- on 3-aminopropyl functionalized SBA-15 has been achieved through the formation of peptide bonds. The covalent link has been confirmed by using IR and 13C CP MAS NMR spectroscopies. Electrostatic interactions between carboxylate and protonated amines have been discarded on the basis of the retention of POMs after repeated washings of the resulting material by ionic liquid (bmimCl). This is the first example of anchored monovacant polyoxometalates (POM) in which nucleophilic oxygen atoms are still available after incorporation into mesoporous supports. Further characterization of the textural properties of grafted materials has shown that they still retain an important mesoporosity, which is compatible with their potential use in heterogeneous catalysis. Such systems are thus interesting candidates for the preparation of anchored homogeneous catalysts in which the POMs would play the role of polydentate inorganic ligands for the active centers.

    Résumé : Introduced in the late sixties, non-innocent (or redox) ligands have been extensively studied for their unusual and intriguing chemical behavior. Their ability to delocalize and/or provide electrons to the metal center of organometallic complexes confers them undisputable chemical interest and has proved valuable in the development of novel synthetic methodologies. This review will focus on the chemistry and applications of low-valent iron complexes bearing potentially non-innocent ligands. Because of the elusive nature of these ligands, and whenever possible, theoretical calculations and analysis of spectroscopic data will be presented in an effort to provide insights into the catalytic activity of the complexes.

    Résumé : The present study investigates the deposition of hybrid organic/inorganic monolayers composed of polyoxometalate (POM) of the Keggin-type [PW12O40](3-) electrostatically linked to three alkylammonium surfactants. The surface pressure dependence, i.e. Langmuir isotherm, as well as their 2D self-assembly has been investigated with mono-and double-chained surfactants and by varying the alkyl chain length. Stable monolayers were obtained for the hexadecyltrimethylammonium and the didodecyldimethylammonium POM surfactants, called respectively C16POM and 2C12POM. It was found that increasing the surface pressure led to the formation of crystallized nano-and micro-domains in coexistence with the monolayer. The crystallites formed were monodisperse in their size repartition and showed various shapes and sizes: oblate nanoparticles of nanometric size (height ca. 7 nm, diameter ca. 140 nm) for C16POM and micrometric 2D-hexagonal crystallites for 2C12POM. The monolayers and the micro-(nano-) crystallites have been characterized after transfer on silicon wafers by means of atomic force microscopy (AFM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and surface-enhanced ellipsometric contrast (SEEC). High crystallinity of the hexagonal aggregates was revealed by electron diffraction (ED). For 2C12POM the monolayer formed before crystallisation is in a 2D-liquid state with the alkyl chains pointing out of the water with an average angle of the alkyl chains to the normal of the plane estimated at 50 degrees. It is shown that the surface pressure induced crystallization of the POM surfactant results in the change of the ammonium surfactant arrangement around the POM with the alkyl chains pointing up and down the POM units showing a reverse bilayer-like structure. This change in the ammonium surfactant arrangement in response to the increase of the surface pressure enables (i) to reduce the molecular area and (ii) the formation of a 2D-hexagonal crystalline lattice of POM units. On the other hand for C16POM the formation of oblate nanoparticles is driven by a three-dimensional growth at the water surface.

UV-vis and P-31 NMR spectroscopies and thermal analysis (TG and DTA) and tested in methanol oxidation at 260 degrees C in the presence of molecular oxygen.

    Résumé : Contrary to 4,4?-dipyridinium (i.e., archetypal methyl viologen), which is reduced by two single-electron transfers (stepwise reduction), the 4,1?-dipyridinium isomer (so-called ?head-to-tail? isomer) undergoes two electron transfers at apparently the same potential (single-step reduction). A combined theoretical and experimental study has been undertaken to establish that the latter electrochemical behavior, also observed for other polyarylpyridinium electrophores, is due to potential compression originating in a large structural rearrangement. Three series of branched expanded pyridiniums (EPs) were prepared: N-aryl-2,4,6-triphenylpyridiniums (Ar-TP), N-aryl-2,3,4,5,6-pentaphenylpyridiniums (Ar-XP), and N-aryl-3,5-dimethyl-2,4,6-triphenylpyridinium (Ar-DMTP). The intramolecular steric strain was tuned via N-pyridinio aryl group (Ar) phenyl (Ph), 4-pyridyl (Py), and 4-pyridylium (qPy) and their bulky 3,5-dimethyl counterparts, xylyl (Xy), lutidyl (Lu), and lutidylium (qLu), respectively. Ferrocenyl subunits as internal redox references were covalently appended to representative electrophores in order to count the electrons involved in EP-centered reduction processes. Depending on the steric constraint around the N-pyridinio site, the two-electron reduction is single-step (Ar = Ph, Py, qPy) or stepwise (Ar = Xy, Lu, qLu). This steric switching of the potential compression is accurately accounted for by ab initio modeling (Density Functional Theory, DFT) that proposes a mechanism for pyramidalization of the Npyridinio atom coupled with reduction. When the hybridization change of this atom is hindered (Ar = Xy, Lu, qLu), the first reduction is a one-electron process. Theory also reveals that the single-step two-electron reduction involves couples of redox isomers (electromers) displaying both the axial geometry of native EPs and the pyramidalized geometry of doubly reduced EPs. This picture is confirmed by a combined UV?vis?NIR spectroelectrochemical and time-dependent DFT study: comparison of in situ spectroelectrochemical data with the calculated electronic transitions makes it possible to both evidence the distortion and identify the predicted electromers, which play decisive roles in the electron-transfer mechanism. Last, this mechanism is further supported by in-depth analysis of the electronic structures of electrophores in their various reduction states (including electromeric forms).

    Résumé : The intrinsic reactivity of the organoruthenium-grafted tungstophosphates [alpha-PW11O39(Ru(eta(6)-arene)(H2O))](5-) and [alpha-PW11O39(Ru(DM (S) under barO)(3)(H2O)}(15-) has been studied as a prerequisite for later catalytic studies. Upon reflux in aqueous solution, they partially transform into [{PW11O39Ru(eta(6)-arene)}(2){WO2}](8-) (when arene = benzene, toluene ...) and [alpha-PW11O39{Ru(DM (S) under barO)}(15)-, respectively. In the former case, the conversion is markedly increased by deliberate addition of tungstate: through a solution NMR study, we show that [(PW11O39Ru(eta(6)-p-cymene))(2)(WO2)(18-) is quantitatively obtained by refluxing a 2:1:2 mixture of [alpha-PW11O39](7-). [Ru(eta(6)-p-cymene)Cl-2](2) and [WO2](2-) at pH 3. In contrast, a different type of complex, [(PW11O39Ru(DM (S) under barO)(3)}(2){(WO2(H2O))(2)O)](8-), is formed by reaction of [alpha-PW11O39{Ru(DM (S) under barO)(3)(H2O)}](5-) with tungstate; it has been characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of an acidic potassium salt, and by W-183 solution NMR. The more sterically demanding {Ru(DM (S) under barO)(3)}(2+) fragment probably does not allow the formation of [{PW11O39Ru(DM (S) under barO)(3)}(2){WO2}](8-), while connection of (PW11O39Ru(DMSO)(3)}(5-) subunits is possible through the larger {(WO2(H2O))(2)O}(2+) bridge.

    Résumé : Decyl-, dodecyl-, and tetradecyltrimethylammonium cations were combined with the catalytic polyoxometalate [PW12O40]3− anion to give spherical and monodisperse nanoparticles that are able to stabilize emulsions in the presence of water and an aromatic solvent. This triphasic liquid/solid/liquid system, based on a catalytic surfactant, is particularly efficient as a reaction medium for epoxidation reactions that involve hydrogen peroxide. The reactions proceed at competitive rates with straightforward separation of the phases by centrifugation. Such catalytic “Pickering” emulsions combine the advantages of heterogeneous catalysis and biphasic catalysis without the drawbacks (e.g., catalyst leaching or separation time).

    Résumé : Surface nanostructuration was successfully achieved by binding the polyoxometalate (POM) (NBu4)3[PW11O39{(SiC6H4NH2)2O}] covalently onto planar gold surfaces. To do so, POMs functionalized with two terminal amino groups were synthesized and reacted with a mercaptoundecanoic acid self-assembled monolayer adsorbed on gold. These amine-terminated POM macroanions proved to be remarkably efficient as nanostructuring agents. Using polarization-modulated infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (PM-IRRAS), photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and atomic force microscopy (AFM), conditions were optimized to elaborate a dense and well-dispersed layer of POMs, leaving a ?free? amine function for the further linkage of proteins. Antirabbit immunoglobulins (anti-rIgGs) were thus grafted on the POM-structured layer, and the recognition of their specific target, rabbit immunoglobulin (rIgGs), was tested by using a quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation measurement (Q

    CM-D). The recognition was good and highly specific, indicating that an efficient, nanostructured biosensor has been constructed. The method reported herein can be easily applied, not requiring any sophisticated experimental setup, and is promising for the patterning of any molecular probes bearing amine groups.

    Résumé : Polyoxometalates (POMs) have remarkable properties and a great deal of potential to meet contemporary societal demands regarding health, environment, energy and information technologies. However, implementation of POMs in various functional architectures, devices or materials requires a processing step. Most developments have considered the exchange of POM counterions in an electrostatically driven approach: immobilization of POMs on electrodes and other surfaces including oxides, embedding in polymers, incorporation into Layer-by-Layer assemblies or Langmuir-Blodgett films and hierarchical self-assembly of surfactant-encapsulated POMs have thus been thoroughly investigated. Meanwhile, the field of organic-inorganic POM hybrids has expanded and offers the opportunity to explore the covalent approach for the organization or immobilization of POMs. In this critical review, we focus on the use of POM hybrids in selected fields of applications such as catalysis, energy conversion and molecular nanosciences and we endeavor to discuss the impact of the covalent approach compared to the electrostatic one. The synthesis of organic-inorganic POM hybrids starting from bare POMs, that is the direct functionalization of POMs, is well documented and reliable and efficient synthetic procedures are available. However, as the complexity of the targeted functional system increases a multi-step strategy relying on the post-functionalization of preformed hybrid POM platforms could prove more appealing. In the second part of this review, we thus survey the synthetic methodologies of post-functionalization of POMs and critically discuss the opportunities it offers compared to direct functionalization.

    Résumé : The reaction of the trivacant Dawson polyoxometalate α-[P2W15O56]12? and the divalent cations Co2+ is known to form a symmetrically derived sandwich complex of formula ??-[Co4(H2O)2(P2W15O56)2]16? [symbolized as ??-Co4(P2W15)2] at low pH (ca. pH 3). We have shown previously that, by a slight modification of the reaction conditions, trinuclear α?-[(NaOH2)Co3(H2O)(P2W15O56)2]17? and dinuclear [(NaOH2)2Co2(P2W15O56)2]18? complexes [symbolized as α?-NaCo3(P2W15)2 and Na2Co2(P2W15)2, respectively] can be synthesized as aqueous-soluble sodium salts. α?-NaCo3(P2W15)2 is a ?lacunary? sandwich complex that can add a Co2+ cation to form nearly quantitatively an unsymmetrical Dawson tetracobalt sandwich polyoxometalate, α?-[Co4(H2O)2(P2W15O56)2]16? [symbolized as α?-Co4(P2W15)2]. Thus, for Co4(P2W15)2, the junctions between the trivacant {P2W15} subunits and the central tetrameric unit can be either both ? type or ? and α types. The interconversion between α?-Co4(P2W15)2 and ??-Co4(P2W15)2 and the decomplexation process at low pH, leading to the formation of α?-NaCo3(P2W15)2 and/or Na2Co2(P2W15)2, have been followed in aqueous solution at various pH values by electrochemistry, UV?visible absorption spectroscopy, and 31P NMR spectroscopy.

    Résumé : Upon standing in air at room temperature, acidified aqueous solutions (pH 2) obtained by dissolving sodium molybdate, iron(II) chloride, acetic acid and potassium dodecatungstoborate led to the formation of greenish thin plate crystals (1) containing discrete clusters. Upon drying 1 at room temperature crosslinking of the clusters occurs in a solid-state reaction which leads to compound 2. Based on crystallographic studies of 1 and on extensive physical characterization (vibrational, NMR, Mössbauer spectra and magnetic susceptibility measurements) of 2, it was shown that compounds 1 and 2 contain reduced spherical {Mo72Fe30} Keplerate-type shells encapsulating non-reduced tungstoborate Keggin-type anions. The properties and structures of these compounds are compared to related hybrid structures containing in principle easier reducible molybdophosphate or molybdosilicate cores. According to the results the present type of encapsulation can be considered as a general phenomenon.
