  • Viktor Nikolaevich Khrustalev is a member of the editorial board of the international magazine "Acta Crystallographica", published by the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). A guest reviewer of many international publishing houses, such as the American Chemical Society (ACS), the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Wiley, Elsevier, the reviewer of many Russian scientific journals, as well as the RFBR expert and the RAS expert. Chairman of Dissertational Council D 212.203.11 on chemical sciences at RUDN. He is the author of 464 scientific works in leading Russian and international periodicals and 3 patents of the Russian Federation, the citation index according to the international Scopus database is 2911, the Hirsch index is 28.
  • He is the head of two RFBR grants (№ 16-29-10782-офи_м and № 17-03-00993-а), the state assignments of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation 4.1154.2017 / 4.6 and the Project of the State Program for Support of Leading Russian Universities "5-100" ( Programs to increase the competitiveness of the leading universities of the Russian Federation among the world's leading research and educational centers)
  • An important contribution to the establishment of the mechanism of the classical reaction of thio-Wittig (using thioketones in place of ketones in the classical olefination reaction (G. Wittig, 1953 - Nobel Prize, 1979)). The stepwise mechanism of the thio-Wittig reaction in the series of compounds of the group elements 14 is predicted through the initial formation of the organoelemental betaines R13E15 (+) ─CR2R3E14R42S (-) (E15 = P, As, E14 = Si, Ge), representing a new class of compounds of the elements of group 14, and their further conversion to the corresponding elementphosphetanes. The obtained results made it possible to prove experimentally for the first time the formation of carbon analogues of silicon and germanium-organic betaines in the classical thio-Wittig reaction, which is the final point in the long-term discussion on this problem.
  • New effective methods for stabilizing highly reactive derivative elements of group 14 and 16 in monomeric form under normal conditions have been found. The stabilized derivatives of germanium (II) and tin (II), possessing the properties of true carbene analogs, have opened the possibility for their use in the synthesis of compounds of new classes, in particular, the first complex containing germylium cation. Highly reactive monomeric hetaryl-chalcogenyl chlorides stabilized in T-shaped zwitterionic form have already been used as starting reagents for the isolation of a number of heterocyclic compounds of a new type.
  •  The mystery of the 60s of the last century about the structure of the "organotin analogs of the Grignard reagent" was solved,and this is a scientific dispute between the Russian (Academician KA Kocheshkov and co-authors) and English (A. Davis and co-authors) scientists on the symmetric or asymmetric structure of R2SnXY complexes R2SnXY
  • (R = Alk, X, Y = Hal, X ≠ Y). The existence of both structural types, both asymmetric adducts R2SnX2 • R2SnY2, and symmetric dimers [R2SnXY] 2, has been uniquely proved experimentally. Based on the data obtained, a probable rearrangement of the "organotin analogues of the Grignard reagent" in solution was predicted, which confirmed the correctness of both scientific groups.
  • A significant contribution to the development of the chemistry of crown ethers and organic macrocyclic receptors for inorganic anions has been made. The structure and interrelation of the structure-properties of more than 50 new heteroorganic macrocyclic compounds possessing biological and other practically important properties are described, including the maximum to date 63-atom inner cycle and unusually flexible ditopic mono- and bis-crownoporphyrins
  • . The structure and the mechanism of binding of a unique macrocyclic receptor selectively and effectively binds pertechnetate anions are determined, which makes it possible to use it for utilization of industrial wastes of nuclear energy.
  • A significant contribution has been made to the discovery of a number of intramolecular rearrangements and isomerizations and the establishment of a mechanism for these transformations, including the Wagner-Meierwein rearrangement, 1,5-thionol isomerization in the series of 3-O-phosphorylated 1,4-benzodiazepines, unusual phosphorotropic migration of C → C in the fragment CNN-C 1,4-benzodiazepines, accompanied by isomerization of Ph2P-O-C in Ph2P (OO) -C, etc.
  • chemical bonds and non-valent interactions of a new type were described, including those determining the direction of new chemical reactions. It was shown for the first time that the hydrogen bond C─H ... π type is capable of promoting the stereospecific flow of intramolecular cyclization reactions - T-reactions. It were revealed more than 20 new polymorphic modifications were found and the conditions for their formation. It were determined a number of photo- and thermochromic phase transitions, including a reversible single crystal-single crystal, are found, and the mechanisms of these transformations, the driving force of which is a change in the system of intermolecular non-valent interactions.
  • In 2015, with the direct and active participation of Viktor Nikolaevich Khrustalev, the synchrotron station of the protein crystallography "BELOK" of the National Research Center "Kurchatov Institute" was adapted to routine X-ray diffraction analysis of small molecules. Today, this is the only station in Russia and the CIS countries of the general single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis using synchrotron radiation, operating in a multi-user mode for scientific purposes. Every year more than 500 X-ray diffraction experiments are carried out at this station. It is important to note that the crystals of the vast majority of the samples can not be studied on a laboratory single crystal diffractometer with an X-ray tube because of their objectively poor quality (organometallic framework compounds, clusters, macrocyclic organic ligands and their complexes, etc.) or very small (micron) sizes. Obviously, the further development of research at this station will lead to obtaining scientific knowledge of an incommensurably higher level than laboratory conditions, which opens wide prospects for increasing the competitiveness of Russian science in the international arena.

The ate complexes [M{C(SiMe3)3}(μ-SBu)2Li(THF)2], M = Ge or Sn, have been made from M(SBu)2 and LiC(SiMe3)3 in tetrahydrofuran and their crystal structures determined. The LiS2M rings are folded at the S···S axis, the ring in the tin compound more so than that in the germanium derivative. The latter has a conformation very like the ring in [(Me3Si)3CAl(SMe)(μ-SMe)2Li(THF)2]. NMR measurements show that the LiS2M rings are preserved in toluene solution, but the Li−S bonds in the tin compound are transiently broken in THF.
New stable monomeric germanium(II) and tin(II) compounds M(OCH2CH2NMe2)2 (M = Ge (1); M = Sn (2)), stabilized by two intramolecular coordination M←N bonds and containing no bulky groups on the metal atoms, were synthesized. The molecular and crystal structures of these compounds, and that of the previously synthesized compound (ArO)2Sn (3; Ar = 2,4,6-(Me2NCH2)3C6H2), were determined by X-ray diffraction analysis. The electronic structures of 1and 2 were studied by the DFT method.
The synthesis, characterization, and anion-binding properties of a series of 2,6-diamidopyridine dipyrromethane hybrid macrocycles is presented. As part of this work, a new method for effecting the oxidation of dipyrromethane-based macrocycles in organic solvents has been developed. The macrocyclic frameworks presented here stand out because of their ease of synthesis and tunable anion-binding properties. Evidence for anion binding was obtained from UV−vis spectroscopic titrations carried out in acetonitrile. The results clearly indicate that by changing the flexibility, cavity size, and directionality of anion-binding moieties in the macrocyclic framework the anion selectivity may be changed dramatically. These results are in accord with density functional theory molecular modeling calculations performed on one member of the series.
Stimulating reactions: The anion-induced synthesis of a new class of 2,6-diamidopyridine–bipyrrole macrocyclic receptors that undergo combinatorial selection as a result of their interaction with anionic guests has been demonstrated (see picture of the interaction of bipyrrole fragments with a sulfate ion). The outcome of this stimulus-driven reaction bears analogy to recent macrocycle-forming strategies based on dynamic combinatorial processes.
We report the first structural data for bis(diarylamine) “bipolarons”: we have isolated and crystallographically characterized salts of the dications obtained by two-electron oxidation of E-4,4‘-bis[di(p-anisyl)amino]stilbene and E,E-2,5-bis{4-[di(p-anisyl)amino]styryl}-3,4-di(n-butoxy)thiophene, [1]2+ and [2]2+ respectively. ESR, NMR, and magnetometry suggest both species have singlet ground states. X-ray structures, together with 1H NMR coupling constants for [2]2+, indicate geometries in which the bond lengths are shifted toward a quinoidal pattern relative to that in the neutral species, but not to a fully quinoidal extent. In particular, the bond-length alternations across the vinylene bridging groups approach zero. DFT calculations with closed-shell singlet configurations reproduce the observed structures well. Our results indicate that singlet species for which one might expect quinoidal geometries (with differences of ca. 0.1 Å between formally single and double bonds) on the basis of a limiting valence-bond representation of the structure can, in fact, show structures with significantly different patterns of bond lengths.
Intramolecularly coordinated phenylbis[N-(dimethylamino)ethoxy]germanium chloride (1) has been prepared, and its structure has been investigated by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy in solutions and by
X-ray diffraction analysis in the crystal. Compound 1 tends to ionize in hydrogen-bond-donor solvents, such as CHCl3, with the formation of the ionic pentacoordinate form [PhGe(OCH2CH2NMe2)2][Cl] (1b) dominating over the neutral hexacoordinate form PhGe(OCH2CH2NMe2)2Cl (1a). Crystals grown from CHCl3 also represent the form 1b. Salt 1b is the first compound stable under ambient conditions containing a free germanium cation of the type [RGeX2]+ (R = Alk, Ar; X = substituent bonded to the germanium atom by a heteroatom: Hal, OR, NR2) without bulky substituents at the germanium atom in the presence of the highly nucleophilic chloride anion.
The substituent exchange reaction of PhSnCl3 with [Et3Sn(OCH2CH2NMe2)] gives rise unexpectedly to the unsymmetrical adduct [Ph2SnCl2·Ph2Sn(OCH2CH2NMe2)2] (2). It has been unambiguously proved for the first time that compounds of the RSnX3 type are able to undergo the hydrocarbon substituent redistribution reaction. The analogous tin complexes [Et2SnCl2·Et2Sn(OMe)2] (5) and [Bu2Sn(OAc)2·Bu2Sn(OMe)2] (6), which have ligands other than β-dimethylaminoethoxy and could be considered as “organotin analogs of Grignard reagents” have symmetrical dimeric structures, i.e., can be formulated as [Bu2Sn(OMe)(OAc)]2 and [Et2Sn(OMe)Cl]2, respectively. Both types of structures, viz., unsymmetrical adduct (2) and symmetrical dimer (5, 6), have been characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis.
The structure of 1,3-dimethyl-2-thio-5-(9-anthrylmethyl)-5-cytisylmethylbarbituric acid (1m) has been investigated by the combination of single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and 1H NMR spectroscopy. It has been revealed that 1m adopts unusually steady intramolecular sandwich-like conformation both in the solid state and in solution, which is stabilized by weak attractive interactions, such as π–π stacking and C─H⋯π and C─H⋯n (lone pair) hydrogen bonds. The “sandwich” conformation observed indicates that the π–π stacking interactions between planar π-systems act even at significant deviations from the strictly parallel arrangement. The nature of the attractive interactions in 5-arylmethyl-5-cytisylmethylbarbituric acids (1) is discussed.
Equatorial–axial isomerism of the tin(II)–iron(0) complex (Me2NCH2CH2O)2Sn–Fe(CO)4 (2), which indicates that the free Sn(OCH2CH2NMe2)2 ligand can behave as a stannylene, has been revealed and studied by NMR and IR spectroscopy in solution as well as by Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis in the solid-state.
The CpCo-shuffle: {CpCo} complexes of linear [3]- and [5]phenylene undergo a light-induced haptotropic migration from a more strongly bound cyclobutadiene moiety to a less strongly bound. The shift is thermally reversible and proceeds along the periphery of the intervening arene rings. As such, the systems constitute photo–thermal storage systems, as well the first examples of cyclobutadiene-to-cyclobutadiene haptotropism.
Three thermochromic phases (α, green; β, red; γ, yellow) and six polymorphic modifications (α1, monoclinic, P21/n, Z = 2; β1, monoclinic, P21/c, Z = 4; β2, triclinic, P1̅, Z = 4; β3, monoclinic, P21/n, Z = 4; γ1 and γ2, tetragonal, P42/n, Z = 4) have been found and structurally characterized for copper(II) diiminate Cu[CF3—C(NH)—CF═C(NH)—CF3]2 (1). The α phase is stable under normal conditions, whereas the high-temperature β and γ phases are metastable at room temperature and transform slowly into the more stable α phase over several days or even weeks. X-ray diffraction study revealed that the title molecules adopt different conformations in the α, β, and γ phases, namely, staircase-like, twisted, and planar, respectively. The investigation of the α, β, and γ phases by differential scanning calorimetry showed that the three endothermic peaks in the range 283, 360, and 438 K are present on their thermograms upon heating/cooling. The two peaks at 283 and 360 K correspond to the solid–solid phase transitions, and the high-temperature peak at 438 K belongs to the melting process of 1. The temperature and thermal effect of all the observed transitions depend on the prehistory of the crystalline sample obtained. A reversible thermochromic single-crystal-to-single-crystal α1⇌β1 phase transition occurring within a temperature interval of 353–358 K can be directly observed using a CCD video camera of the X-ray diffractometer. A series of other solid–solid α1→γ1, β2→γ1, β3→γ1, and γ1⇌γ2 phase transitions can be triggered in 1 by temperature. It has been suggested that, under equilibrium conditions, the α1→γ1 and β2→γ1 phase transitions should proceed stepwise through the α1→β1→β2→β3→γ1 and β2→β3→γ1 stages, respectively. The mechanism of the phase transitions is discussed on the basis of experimental and theoretical data.
The structures of two new T-shaped selenyl chloride adducts studied by experimental (multinuclear NMR, IR, and Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis) and theoretical (ab initio and DFT quantum chemical calculations) methods clearly demonstrate the possibility of propeller-like free rotation of the SeCl2 moiety around the C–Se bond and indicate the absence of any significant double-bond character.
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) can provide a matrix for the assembly of organic chromophores into well-defined geometries, allowing for tuning of the material properties and study of structure–property relationships. Here, we report on the effect of the coordinated metal ion on the luminescence properties of eight isostructural MOFs having the formula M12M2L3(DMF)2 (M1 = M2 = Zn (1), Cd (2), Mn (3), Co (4);
M1 = Zn, M2 = Cd (5), Mn (6), Co (7); M1 = Co, M2 = Mn (8); L = trans-4,4′-stilbene dicarboxylate), synthesized by reaction of the appropriate metal nitrate or mixtures of metal nitrates with LH2 in DMF. The crystal structures of 2, 3 and 5–8 were determined by X-ray diffraction to be composed of trinuclear metal clusters linked by stilbene dicarboxylate linkers in a paddlewheel geometry, extending to form a 2-D layered structure. In the mixed-metal cases, the larger metal ion was found to occupy the octahedral site in the cluster while the smaller ion occupies the tetrahedral positions, suggesting a selective, ligand-directed assembly process for the mixed-metal species. Variable temperature magnetic measurements for paramagnetic MOFs 3 and 6–8 were consistent with the site occupancies determined crystallographically, and indicated weak intra-cluster antiferromagnetic coupling for 3and 8. Comparison between the crystal structures of 2, 3 and 5–8 and those reported for 1 and 4 in the literature reveal close resemblances between linker environments, with important intermolecular stilbene–stilbene geometries that are comparable in all cases. Interestingly, pale-colored 1–3 and 5–7 display very similar emission profiles upon excitation at λex = 350 nm, whereas dark-colored 4 and 8 do not exhibit detectable emission spectra. The bright, well-resolved luminescence of 1, 2 and 5 is ascribed to rigidification of the linker upon coordination to the d10 metal ions, whereas the weaker emission observed for 3, 6 and 7 is presumably a result of quenching due to close proximity of the linker to one or more paramagnetic ions. Time-resolved measurements for 1, 2, 5 and 6 reveal biexponential emission decays, where the lifetime of the longer-lived state corresponds to observed variations in the nearest-neighbor cofacial stilbene–stilbene distances in their crystal structures. For 3, a monoexponential decay with shorter lifetime was determined, indicating significant paramagnetic quenching of its emissive state.

1-Alkyl-5-(5-nitro-2-N-morpholinobenzylidene) barbituric acids undergo tert-amino effect reactions (T-reactions) yielding 1-alkyl-2,4,6-trioxoperhydropyrimidino-5-spiro-10′-(7′-nitro-1′,3′,4′,9′,10′,10a′-hexahydro-2′-oxa)-4a′-azaphenanthrene derivatives as a mixture of (S*,S*)- and (S*,R*)-diastereomers. A novel heterophase modification of the T-reaction is proposed, which makes it possible to afford nearly pure (S*,S*)-diastereomers in high yields, whereas rearrangement reactions in solutions usually lack stereoselectivity. To our best knowledge, this is the first example of deliberate tuning stereodirection of a T-reaction by external conditions. Using X-ray diffraction analysis, we demonstrate that this diastereoselectivity of the solid state T-reaction is due to a peculiar crystal structure of starting 5-arylidene barbiturates, which accommodates only one specific conformation fixed by a strong intramolecular C–H···π interaction.
Compounds with polarizable π systems that are susceptible to attack with nucleophiles at C–Hal (Hal = Cl, Br) bonds react with Pd(PPh3)4 to yield net oxidative addition. X-ray structures show that the resulting Pd(PPh3)2Hal groups greatly reduce intermolecular π–π interactions. The Pd-functionalized dyes generally exhibit solution-like absorption spectra in films, whereas their Hal analogues exhibit features attributable to aggregation.
A series of four unprecedented heterometallic metallagermsesquioxanes were synthesized. Their cage-like architectures have a unique type of molecular topology consisting of the hexairon oxo {Fe6O19} core surrounded in a triangular manner by three cyclic germoxanolates [PhGe(O)O]5. This structural organization induces antiferromagnetic interactions between the FeIII ions through the oxygen atoms. Evaluated for this first time in catalysis, these compounds showed a high catalytic activity in the oxidation of alkanes and the oxidative formation of benzamides from alcohols.
A one-step copper-catalyzed reaction of aldehyde-derived N-substituted hydrazones with CCl4resulted in efficient synthesis of 4,4-dichloro-1,2-diazabuta-1,3-dienes. It was proven that this C–C bond-forming cascade reaction operates via an addition of trichloromethyl radical to the C═N bond of hydrazone followed by a base-induced elimination of HCl. The reaction was found to be very general, as diverse hydrazones possessing various aromatic groups at N-site, as well as aromatic, aliphatic, and heterocyclic substituents at C-site, are capable partners for coupling with a wide range of polyhalogenated compounds (CCl3Br, CBr4, CCl3CN, CCl3COOEt, CCl3CF3, CBr3CF3) to produce a family of functionalized 1,2-diazabuta-1,3-dienes. It was demonstrated that the prepared heterodienes are highly versatile building blocks for straightforward assembly of various valuable acyclic and heterocyclic molecules.
We found for the first time a new origin of selection of perovskite crystallization pathways from DMF solutions containing MAI and PbI2 to present here a comprehensive study of a full set of essential intermediate phases determining the perovskite’s morphology. For all three discovered structurally different intermediate phases forming at a given precursor ratio, we refined their crystal structures by synchrotron X-ray radiation and investigated dynamics and phase assemblage in the course of decomposition. As a result, we revealed a clear correlation between the composition of the intermediate phases, peculiarities of their crystal structure, and the morphology of the final perovskite films. Using the DFT method we calculated formation enthalpies of these intermediate phases and explained the preferential precipitation of DMSO-adduct rather than DMF-adduct in an antisolvent approach. This finding opens up a possibility of design-on-demand of perovskite materials using simple soft chemistry approaches.
This paper concisely describes capabilities of the ‘Belok’ beamline at the Kurchatov synchrotron radiation source, related to high-throughput small-molecule X-ray crystallography. As case examples, a series of four novel transition metal complexes with azomethine ligands were selected. The complexes demonstrate somewhat unexpected changes in the coordination geometry and nuclearity in response to the introduction of substituents in the ligand’s periphery.
