In their Commumnication on p. 11722 ff., Y. Rubin, A. Hirsch, and co-workers report the synthesis of pentaarylated azafullerene derivatives and their multihydro intermediates. A triaryldihydroazafullerene derivative is the first crystallographically characterized hydroazafullerene.
In their Communication on page 11832 ff., T. Müller, R. G. Cooks, and A. Badu-Tawiah investigate the Claisen–Schmidt condensation of 1-indanone and 4-chlorobenzaldehyde by electrospray-ionization mass spectrometry.
In their Communication on page 11736 ff., I. Hermans and co-workers report a convenient preparation of Sn-β by solid-state ion exchange. The product has more favorable catalytic properties than Sn-β prepared by other routes.
