Inside Back Cover: Air-Stable, Highly Fluorescent Primary Phosphanes (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 20/2012)



original image

Air-stable primary phosphanes that are highly fluorescent are presented by L. J. Higham and co-workers in their communication on page 4921 ff. These primary phosphanes (RPH2) can be used to prepare tripodal phosphanes which form rhenium complexes that retain a desirable photophysical profile and have potential applications as mimics of technetium imaging agents.
