The tailored synthesis of carbon nitrides (CNs) is of particular interest in multidisciplinary catalytic applications. However, their fabrication in the form of one-dimensional (1D) nanorods for electrocatalytic carbon monoxide (CO) oxidation is not hitherto reported. Herein, a facile roadmap is...

A method for the separation of tetrachloroplatinate PtCl(4)(2-), and hexachloroplatinate PtCl(6)(2-), by solid-phase extraction, using a Dowex 1x10 anion exchange resin is proposed. The sequential elution and separation of PtCl(4)(2-), and PtCl(6)(2-) is achieved using selective complexing agents. The eluates...

We have prepared phosphorothioate-containing cyclic oligodeoxynucleotides that fold into 'dumbbells' containing CRE and TRE sequences, the binding sequences for the CREB and JUN proteins, respectively. Six phosphorothioate residues were introduced into each of the recognition sequences. K2PtCl4 crosslinks CRE to...

A detailed description of the diverse mobility of the ND4+ ions in the low-temperature ordered phase of (ND4)2PtCl4 is developed on the basis of single-crystal deuteron NMR spectra and site-selective T1 measurements. The ordered phase of (ND4)2PtCl4 consists of two...

DNA aptamers carrying Pt nanoparticles were prepared by the reaction of DNA aptamers (without functionalization with biotin, thiol, or other reactive groups) with K 2[PtCl 4] in solution at 60-90 degrees C. The DNA-Pt complexes possessed peroxidase enzymatic activity while...
