Stabilization of High Spin Molecules in Polymer Matrices

  • Synthesis of azide precursors of the phenyl nitrenes derivatives bearing bulky and cationic substitutes. Introducing the precursors to Nafion/Na+ membrane matrix via diffusion or ion exchange reaction
  • Generating the nitrenes derivatives at cryogenic temperatures and tracking the thermal stabilization with UV/Vis and EPR spectroscopy while annealing
  • Characterization of the thermal products with matrix isolation IR and Solid State NMR Spectroscopy
  • Measurement of magnetic susceptibility versus temperature with SQUID magnetometer
