Abstract

original image

The cover picture shows the then young Detlef Schröder, a mastermind dedicated to the sciences. With this special issue tribute will be paid to the memory of a distinguished scientist, an enthusiastic teacher, a supportive colleague, and an adorable friend. In their Full Paper on page 952 ff., Helmut Schwarz and co-workers have investigated (both experimentally and computationally) the reactions of cationic transition-metal hydroxides of the first row with ammonia.
