The lecture, entitled Mercury contaminated sites in the local,regional and global context will be held on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at 2:15 p.m. at the Main Lecture Hall at J. Stefan Institute.

 

Mercury contaminated sites in a local, regional and global context


Prof. Dr. Milena Horvat

Mercury contaminated sites represent an important source of mercury emission into the global atmosphere due to evaporation of mercury from contaminated land and waters. Contaminated sites also represent important source for transboundary movement of mercury through hydrological cycles, particularly in the large river catchments scale and contaminated coastal regions. In ecosystems sensitive areas mercury may represent considerable health and ecosystem risk due to direct and indirect exposure to mercury and its compounds. In particular, the risks to public and environmental health of mercury compounds released from such sites environmentally sound mitigation options and associated costs and the contribution of contaminated sites to global releases need to be addressed. The lecture will address these issues from a local, regional and global perspective, particularly in the light of a new international convention, so called “Minamata Convention”, that will adopted by the Governing Council of UNEP in 2013.

Dr. Barbara Malič, senior research associate at the Electronic Ceramics Department of the Jožef Stefan Institute and professor at the Nanosciences and Nanotechnology programme at the Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate School,
is one of the leading researchers in the field of piezoelectric ceramics and thin films synthesis. Piezoelectric ceramics is a very popular research field at the moment due to its applicability factor. Present research in the field is mainly focused on environment friendly materials.

Dr. Malič dealt with the synthesis and structure problem of alkaline niobates and achieved results that place her among the key researchers of the field. In the past seven years, she obtained very important scientific and research results in the field of synthesis of environment friendly piezoelectrics without lead and the synthesis of ferroelectric thin films and particles derived from solutions, as well as presented the results to the expert public in a number of successful articles. Her work met a wide response, what is now shown in many invited lectures to international conferences, an invitation to a series of lectures at the Oulu University in Finland and a collaboration in five European research projects.

The lecture, entitled Elemental speciation in environmental and biological systems – case studies for arsenic will be held on Thursday, November 18, 2010 at 4:15 p.m. at IPS Lecture Hall.

Elemental speciation in environmental and biological systems – case studies for arsenic
Dr. Zdenka Šlejkovec

Analytical chemists have increasingly realized within the last two decades that determining total concentrations of the elements cannot provide the required information about mobility, bioavailability, and finally the impact of elements on ecological systems or biological organisms. Only knowledge about the chemical species of the elements can lead to an understanding of chemical and biochemical reactions involving these species, thus providing information about toxicity or essentiality. Thus, problem-related speciation analysis promises to become an essential tool for useful risk assessment of elements in the environment, leading to more effective diagnosis and therapy of trace elements, depletion or toxicity and better health. This presentation will focus on the element arsenic which was one of the first elements with a high relevance for speciation due to the very different toxicities and metabolic processes related to the various arsenic species. The speciation approach will be highlighted from a procedural point-of-view with attention to potential artifacts, and examples will be given related to diverse fields such as food control, environmental pollution (air, water and soil), medical treatment monitoring, classification of organisms (plant and fish taxonomy), etc.

The lecture, entitled Preparation and reactions of silicon in low oxidation states will be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. at IPS Lecture Hall.

Preparation and reactions of silicon in low oxidation states

Gašper Tavčar

Interstellar space is a unique laboratory in which chemical processes can occur that are not normally found on the Earth. As a result over 180 different molecular species have been detected and characterized by spectroscopic methods in the interstellar and circumstellar media. Interstellar molecules are formed by chemical reactions within very sparse interstellar or circumstellar clouds of dust and gas. Spectroscopic methods have shown the existence of different unstable carbon species (:CH2,…) and other group 14 elements like SiS, SiCN, SiO and others. One of the earlier methods to mimic naturally occurring interstellar chemistry is to isolate such unstable interstellar species by matrix isolation methods. Cocondensation of thermally generated unstable species in an inert matrix has proved to be an excellent method for trapping and spectroscopically characterizing unstable species including interstellar molecules at laboratory conditions. Such compounds are unstable; therefore silicon chemistry is dominated by the tetravalent silicon whereas that of divalent silicon in monomeric or dimeric Si-Si compounds is still in its infancy.
Silicon(II) has free electron pair and is therefore carbene analogue. Transient silylenes are considered as key intermediates in synthetic organosilicon chemistry such as in various photochemical, thermal, and metal reduction reactions of organosilicon chemistry despite its chemistry being unknown. Until 1994 the silylenes were considered as unstable very reactive species, which polymerize or decompose at temperatures over 77 K. Situation has changed when West published preparation of first silylene stable at room temperature. Some different silylenes were prepared till now, but just two silylenes with Si-Cl bond are known. In first case silicon(II) chloride is stabilized amidinate ligand (PhC(NtBu)2), while in the other silicon(II) dichloride is stabilized by Dipp N-heterocyclic carbene. Coordination number in both cases is three and therefore the silicon atom is not sterically restricted for further reactions. There were plenty of different reactivity tests of chlorosilylenes done recently. Adducts with BH3, B(C6F5)3, Ni(CO)4 and Fe(CO)5 were successfully prepared. Chlorosylilenes react with ketones and diketones forming silaoxiranes and five membered heterocycles, while the product with azides is rearrangement of silicon dichloride on the carbine heterocycle or formation of silamido complexes. Reaction with S-S bond proceeds through oxidative insertion of silicon between the sulfur atoms. Despite trying silicon difluoride wasn’t prepared. It is interesting that chlorosilylenes react with fluorinated aromatic compounds with stereospecific splitting of C-F bonds.
Double and triple covalent bonds are ubiquitous in carbon chemistry and have been studied for more than two centuries but were unusual with its congener in the periodic table, silicon. This situation changed when West and co-workers in 1981 synthesized a compound containing a Si=Si double bond (R2Si=SiR2, R=Me3C6H2), in which each Si atom has a formal oxidation state of +II. Key to the discovery of stable compounds containing Si=Si double bonds was the protection of the double bonds by bulky substituents, which provide kinetic stability. In 2004, Sekiguchi and co-workers were successful in isolating compound containing Si≡Si triple bonds (RSi≡SiR; R=Si(iPr){CH(SiMe3)2}2) in which the formal oxidation state of Si is +I. Subsequently, Robinson and co-workers synthesized two compounds, one with a Si-Si single bond having formal oxidation state +I and another with a Si=Si double bond in which the formal oxidation state of Si is 0 (RClSi-SiClR and RSi=SiR, R=1,3-bis-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazol-2-ylidene). Roesky and co-workers have published second compound containing a single bond Si-Si (RSi-SiR R= PhC(NtBu)2)and the formal oxidation state of the silicon atoms +I.
Reactivity of RSi-SiR R= PhC(NtBu)2 was determined with ketones and N2O, where four membered Si2O2 rings are formed, while five membered heterocyclic rings are formed with diketones. Reactions with phosphorous and phosphaethyne, lead to the formation of four membered Si2P2 or Si2PC rings. Surprisingly 1,4 disilabenzene was formed in the reaction of RSi-SiR with diphenylacetylene.
Silicon compounds in formally  low oxidation states are very reactive and they represent importaint intermediates in many reactions. With isolation of their products new areas in organosilicon chemistry are being opened.

The lecture, entitled Concentric electron probe method for quantitative chemical analysis of interfaces on a sub-nanometer scale will be held on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. at IPS Lecture Hall.

 

Concentric electron probe method for quantitative chemical analysis of interfaces on a sub-nanometer scale

Dr. Aleksander Rečnik

Measuring an exact chemical composition of an interface or a boundary in crystalline materials is one of the key issues in materials science. The main drawback encountered in the quantification of analytical spectra obtained by either energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) or electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) is associated with projection problem, unknown sample topography and beam broadening due to dynamic electron scattering. Therefore in most instances the fraction of the analyzed interface within the volume of analysis is not precisely known leading to erroneous interpretation of the interface composition. The most common techniques for analyzing the interface composition are line profiling and a spatial difference method. Line profiling is based on acquiring several spectra across the interface, while spatial difference method relies on the normalized difference between the spectrum measured on the interface and the one recorded on bulk crystal close to the interface. Both methods suffer from rather inaccurate estimation of the volume of analysis due to specimen thickness variations. In order to improve the poor accuracy and precision of these methods a new technique was developed for highly accurate measurement of chemical composition of solids at the atomic scale. The method is based on acquiring EDS or EELS spectra with a sequence of concentric electron probes (CEP). CEP method is 102 more accurate and 101 more precise than the conventional spatial difference technique, allowing determination of down to +/-0.1 atoms/nm2, depending on the type of the trace element in the interface plane. The method will be demonstrated on various twin- and other special boundaries in synthetic materials and minerals.
