The Yurii Simonov Memorial Prize winners 2013

Prize for younger researchers was awarded to Dr. Lilia Croitor (Institute of Applied Physics, Academy of Sciences of Moldova) for series of publications under the title "Molecular design and crystallographic studies of Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II) coordination compounds as the hosts for small molecules inclusion". The object of this study represents the controlled design and single crystal X-ray analysis of the mixed ligand Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II) dioximates/dioximes as a new family of potentially porous materials with useful properties. It has been demonstrated that the bulkiness of the 1,2-cyclohexanedionedioxime molecule along with the conformational flexibility of its cyclohexyl ring provides an access to the loosely packed compounds capable of accumulating guest molecules. Such host–guest systems demonstrate luminescence response to the guest inclusion (in majority of compounds – quenching of luminescence).
