5 Slides about:Photophysics and photochemistry of MLCT excited states (Wilson)
Description

This Five Slides About will introduce the basic photophysical and photochemical concepts associated with the metal-to-ligand charge-transfer (MLCT) transitions using luminescent rhenium and ruthenium complexes as examples. The potential therapeutic use of photoactivated metal complexes to kill cancer cells is also presented.

VIPEr nanoCHAt : NeWBiEs Spring 2022 Learning Objects

Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Wed, 02/02/2022 - 18:07

This collection accompanies the IONiC VIPEr nanoCHAt video series NeWBiEs, recorded in Spring 2022. This series is comprised of weekly conversations with two IONiC members, Wes Farrell and Shirley Lin from the US Naval Academy, as they taught a foundation-level inorganic chemistry course for the first time. The LOs discussed in the videos are included in this collection.

Development of Expanded Porphyrins (Sessler)

Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Wed, 02/24/2021 - 09:24
Description

The LO focuses upon classic articles describing the synthesis and characterization of the first "texaphyrin" compounds.

This LO is part of a special VIPEr collection honoring the 2021 ACS National Award recipients in the field of inorganic chemistry. Jonathan L. Sessler was the recipient of the Ronald Breslow Award for Achievement in Biomimetic Chemistry for the discovery of expanded porphyrins, molecular recognition via base-pairing, pyrrole-based anion binding, and demonstrating the power of this biomimetic chemistry in drug discovery.
