Detailed Geometric and Electronic Structures of a One-Electron-Oxidized Ni Salophen Complex and Its Amido Derivatives



Invited for the cover of this issue is the group of Fabrice Thomas at Université Grenoble Alpes, France, collaborating with the group of Tim Storr at Simon Fraser University, Canada. The cover image shows the correlation between the low-energy near-infrared absorption spectrum and the spin density in three radical complexes, illustrating the delocalization of the spin density in salen radical complexes. Mountains that surround the cities of Grenoble and Vancouver fit nicely into the background.
