      The title page shows the layer sequence ([001]) of the new intercalation compound (Te2)2(I2): tellurium double layers alternate with planar iodine layers. The perspective drawing gives an idea of the spatial structure of the compound, which was obtained by hydrothermal synthesis from GeTe, Te, and HI. A tellurium modification with a double layer structure was previously unknown. Further details on the preparation, structure, and properties of (Te)2(I2) are reported by R. Kniep et al. on page 393.

    1. Radwaste Immobilization by Structural Modification—the Crystallochemical Properties of SYNROC, a Titanate Ceramic (pages 357–365)

      Dr. Timothy J. White, Robert L. Segall and Peter S. Turner

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2003 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.198503573

      For the final storage of radioactive material, a variety of suggestions have been discussed and in part realized. According to the synroc (synthetic rock) concept, a “sodium titanate—sodium zirconate” is combined with (simulated) waste and, after cation exchange, reductively calcined. The crystalline material so obtained is characterized, among other things, by hydrothermal stability.

    2. The Glycine Receptor of Rat Spinal Cord: Exploring the Site of Action of the Plant Alkaloid Strychnine (pages 365–370)

      Prof. Dr. Heinrich Betz

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2003 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.198503651

      The transmission of nerve impulses in nerve cell membranes requires the binding of glycine to specific receptors. The glycine receptor from rat spinal cord has been characterized with the help of strychnine, which is able to reversibly block these receptors. The receptor is a large membrane protein consisting of three different subunits.

    3. The 3′-End of tRNA and Its Role in Protein Biosynthesis (pages 371–391)

      The formation of a peptide bond between the 3′-ends of aminoacyl-tRNA and peptidyl-tRNA is catalyzed—according to a new model—by a special region of the 23S RNA. Two strands of the 23S RNA, which are brought into close proximity by folding, are involved both in the binding of the two tRNAs and in the catalysis.

      The enzyme deoxyhemerythrin reacts in a completely different manner with Nmath image and NCS than the methemerythrin model compounds containing the partial structure 1, L = N,N′,N″-trimethyl-1,4,7-triazacyclononane. The [Fe22-O)(μ-carboxylato)2] group of the enzyme remains intact, whereas in the model compound the carboxylato bridges and the oxo bridges are replaced.

      Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Kniep and Heinz-Jürgen Beister

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2003 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.198503931

      Tellurium double layers, between which planar layers of iodine molecules are inserted, characterize the new intercalation compound (Te2)2(I2); it contains a tellurium modification that was previously unknown as an independent phase, which is intercalated by elemental iodine. Crystals were obtained by hydrothermal synthesis in concentrated hydrogen iodide.

      The “1,2-dianion” 1 could be identified by reaction with Me3SiCl and D2O. 1 was shown by 1H- and 13C-NMR spectroscopy to aggregate in solution into a polymeric network—in contrast to the behavior of dimeric monolithiobicyclobutanes.

      The two-step mechanism for the transformation of an alkyne complex 1 into a vinylidene complex 3 could be confirmed by the isolation of the intermediate 2a having pentacoordinated iridium. The complexes 3 and their Rh analogues are the first square-planar vinylidenemetal complexes (a, R = Ph; b, R = Me; c, R = H, R′ = iPr).

    9. Sequencing of Short Peptides Using FAB Mass Spectrometry—Increased Information via Derivatization (pages 408–409)

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2003 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.198504081

      Structure-specific cleavage fragments, all of which contain the amino end of the molecule and which were formed by cleavage of the peptide bond, are obtained by fast atom bombardment (FAB) mass spectrometry of N-dansyl substituted small peptides. This derivatization thus allows an unequivocal determination of the amino acid sequence.

      Three linearly arranged Cu ions, coordinated by three parallel N5 zig-zag chains in such a way that each metal ion is surrounded by a trigonal planar array of N atoms, are present in the pentaazadienide complex 1. The red crystals of 1 exhibit weak paramagnetism; the Cu[BOND]Cu distances in the chains are the shortest observed so far in copper(I) complexes.

      Dr. Jiri Mlcoch and Prof. Dr. Eberhard Steckhan

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2003 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.198504121

      Photochemically excited triphenylpyrylium tetrafluoroborate catalyzes Diels-Alder reactions that proceed via an electron-transfer chain mechanism. By means of a “redox umploung”, an electron-rich alkene (En) is transformed into the radical cation, which functions as an appropriate electron-poor dienophile (Sens = triphenylpyrylium).

      In the 1-aza-2-boraallene 1, the bulky substitutents are responsible for the kinetic stability of the N[DOUBLE BOND]B[DOUBLE BOND]C system. Structural proof is provided by, among other things, its reaction with azides to give azaboriranes.

    17. Gas-Phase Reactions of Organic Compounds on Raney Nickel (pages 418–419)

      Prof. Dr. Hans Bock and Dipl.-Chem. Hans Peter Wolf

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2003 | DOI: 10.1002/anie.198504181

      The comparison of catalyzed and uncatalyzed thermal gas-phase reactions of model organic compounds showed that reactions in the presence of Raney nickel proceed at appreciably lower temperature with remarkable selectivity. For example, 2-propanol is dehydrogenated to acetone on quartz wool only at 970 K, whereas on Raney nickel it is fifty percent converted already at room temperature and 10−2 mbar.

      The tetraradical 1 is not an intermediate in the photolysis of the title compound 2. On the contrary, successive elimination of N2 takes place to give four isomeric monoazoalkanes and three bi-5,5′-bicyclo[2.1.0]pentanes.

      A ligand containing a RuP triple bond is one way to view the central PhPRu(CO)3 molecular portion of the tetranuclear cluster 1. As in alkynes, this group can bridge the Co2(CO)6 unit and function as a ligand that is bound side-on with respect to the Cp(CO)Rh unit.

    23. Photosignal II as an Indicator for Damage to Forests - EPR Spectroscopic Investigation of Spruce Needles (pages 425–426)

      Contrary to the predictions of the Woodward-Hoffmann rules, the walk rearrangement (1) proceeds with inversion at the migrating C atom. The cause is an unusually strongly pronounced secondary orbital interaction.

      The highest π-acidity of all bidiazines, which have the possibility of forming α-diimine chelates (14), is not exhibited by 2,2′-bipyrazine 3 but rather by the 4,4′-bipyrimidine 2, which has not been used up to now in complex chemistry. This result was obtained from a theoretical analysis as well as an investigation of the corresponding d6 metal complexes.
