An ion soft-landing approach was applied to study the motion of hydronium (D(3)O(+)) and cesium (Cs(+)) ions from 84 to 104 K in glassy 3-methyl-pentane (3MP) films vapor deposited on Pt(111). Both ions were found to have very similar mobilities...

Halogenation of an iron porphyrin causes severe saddling of the macrocyclic structure and a large positive shift in the iron(III)/(II) redox couple. Although pre-halogenated iron(II) porphyrins such as Fe(TFPPBr8) [H2TFPPBr8, beta-octabromo-tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)-porphyrin] are relatively resistant to autoxidation, they rapidly reduce alkyl...
