State secrets: Mott–Hubbard and charge-density-wave states have been observed in the quasi-1D bromine-bridged Ni and Pd complexes [M(chxn)2Br]Br2, respectively, using STM (see image for the Ni complex, the arrow denotes the direction of the chain). The spin soliton was also visualized in real space in the Ni-Pd mixed-metal complexes for the first time. chxn: (1R,2R)-diaminocyclohexane.
