      A new metal–organic framework withamino groups oriented inside the pores has been synthesized. The post-synthetic modification of the cavities in this MOF with two different functionalities is for the firsttime clearly evidenced by X-ray crystallography. The cavities of the MOF can be transformed without modifying the original 3D structure of the MOF.

      The synthesis and structural characterization of the η1-methylphosphaalkyne complex, [RuH(dppe)21-P≡CMe)][CF3SO3] [dppe = 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphanyl)ethane], is reported. Its treatment with HBF4 leads to phosphaalkyne reduction and the formation of a rare PF2Et complex, [RuH(dppe)21-PF2Et)][BF4].

      FSNT, FMS, and FSNP-15 with an immobilized phenanthroline moiety as a fluorescent receptor were fabricated by a sol–gel reaction, and their binding abilities with metal ions were evaluated by fluorophotometry in water/acetonitrile (8:2, v/v) at pH 7. These silica nanomaterials selectively recognized Cu2+ ions among heavy metal ions.

      The ratio of the trimeric and tetrameric palladium complexes has shown a strong dependence on the steric properties ofthe chelating diamines. The trimeric [Pd(en)(4,4′-bpy)]36+ cation has been observed for the first time.

      Alkylmagnesium complexes (dpp-bian)MgR (R = Me, 2; Et, 3; Me3SiCH2, 4) are stable both in solution and in the solid state, whereas the equivalent complexeswith tert-butyl or 2-methylallyl groups are unstable and are prone to undergo reductive elimination of the respective alkyl radicals.

      The magnetic and photomagnetic properties of a new iron(II) spin crossover complexes with a N4O2 coordination sphere arepresented. The reason for steps during the spin transition is discussed.

    6. New Heterodimetallic Platinum(II) Complexes Potentially Useful as Molecular Switches (pages 1599–1612)

      Sonia Pérez, Concepción López, Amparo Caubet, Xavier Solans and Mercè Font-Bardía

      Version of Record online: 13 FEB 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200701181

      The electrochemical and spectroscopic properties of different families of new platinum(II) complexes containing ferrocenyl units acting as mono-, bi- or terdentate ligands can be switched on and off upon acid/base addition. The ease with which these changes take place depends on several factors such as the mode of binding of the ligand, its conformation, or the nature and arrangement of the monodentate ligand bound to the platinum(II) atom.

      Version of Record online: 6 FEB 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200701018

      In Pd–Mn/niobia materials prepared by anchoring molecular precursors, calcination, and reduction in hydrazine at low temperature, palladium is distributed between Pd3Mn nanoparticles and palladiumclusters, whereas Mn2+ ions are engaged in MnO clusters linked to niobia. Strong Mn–niobia interactions prevent the reduction of Mn2+ and induce heterogeneity.

      Herein we present the syntheses and the molecular structures of several heterodimetallic metal chalcogenide cluster compounds containing a heterocubane core. Magnetic measurements were performed on selected compounds to learn more about the electron distribution within the cluster.

    10. Hydrogen Bonding and Lewis Acid–Base Interactions in the System Bis(pentafluorophenyl)borinic Acid / Methanol (pages 1645–1653)

      Daniela Donghi, Daniela Maggioni, Tiziana Beringhelli, Giuseppe D'Alfonso, Pierluigi Mercandelli and Angelo Sironi

      Version of Record online: 5 FEB 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200701210

      The complementary Lewis acid–base and hydrogen-bond donor/acceptor properties of (C6F5)2BOH and MeOH give rise to a number of interlaced association equilibria. In particular, hydrogen-bond pairing of the covalent adduct affords a dimer, the key intermediate in the esterification reaction, in fast equilibrium with the acid and ester through intramolecular proton transfer, as revealed by low-temperature NMR spectroscopy.

      Oligomeric and polymeric (1D and 2D) coordination complexes of cuprous bromide with coordinated and noncoordinated cystamine were isolated by a hydrothermal technique. An unusual noncentrosymmetric complex contains both enantiomers. The networks consist of coordination and hydrogen bonds as well as electrostaticattractions between the polar fragments.

      Some hydrolysis-resistant organometallic complexes have been prepared and characterised and their cytotoxicity studied in twocancer cell lines. The results indicate that hydrolysis may not be a prerequisite (or the first step) in their mode of action.

      Leonardo Bernasconi and Evert Jan Baerends

      Version of Record online: 11 FEB 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200701135

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      We describe a new class of oxidoiron(IV) compounds in which the ferryl moiety is chelated by an EDTA ligand in its various protonation states. We found all systems to possess a quintet ground state and to be catalytically active. In the fully protonated complex, [FeO·EDTAH4]2+, H abstraction from methane in the gas phase proceeds with an energy barrier lower than the one computed in the presence of the “Fenton catalyst” [FeO·(H2O)5]2+.

      Yinyan Li, Guoli Zheng and Jun Lin

      Version of Record online: 5 FEB 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200700927

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      An uncommon contorted <110>-oriented hybrid perovskite (C3H11SN3–PbBr4) was obtained. The layered structure is composed of <110>-oriented perovskite-type sheets alternating with dications of theligand S-(2-aminoethyl)isothiourea. The organic ligand plays an important role in constructing the hybrid structure.

    16. Methylene Spacer-Regulated Structural Variation in Cobalt(II/III) Complexes with Bridging Acetate and Salen- or Salpn-Type Schiff-Base Ligands (pages 1693–1701)

      Shouvik Chattopadhyay, Michael G. B. Drew and Ashutosh Ghosh

      Version of Record online: 13 FEB 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200701025

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Trinuclear, mixed-valent CoIII–CoII–CoIII complexes and mononuclear CoIII complexes were prepared by regulating the chain length of the diamine fragments of Salen-type Schiff base ligands. In the trinuclear complexes, both acetato andphenoxo groups bridge the low-spin CoIII and high-spin CoII centres. The CoIII centres in the mononuclear complexes are low-spin and diamagnetic. The formation of trinuclear vs. mononuclear complexes was rationalised by DFT calculations.

    17. Guest-Inclusion Behavior of Double-Strand 1D Coordination Polymers Based on N,N′-Type Schiff Base Ligands (pages 1702–1711)

      Qing Wang, Rui Yang, Chun-Feng Zhuang, Jian-Yong Zhang, Bei-Sheng Kang and Cheng-Yong Su

      Version of Record online: 11 FEB 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200701106

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four 1D double-strand coordination polymers were obtained from the assembly of three N,N′-type Schiff base ligands of distinctive lengths and flexibility with transition-metal ions. These coordination polymers contain the same M2L2 basic rings but display different crystal packingfashions, which results in different guest adsorption and desorption properties.

      A CuII coordination polymer, 1, exhibits the behaviour of an antiferromagnetically coupled 1D chain, as confirmed by fitting its magnetization at 1.9 K. The comparison of several methods of calculating the susceptibility data indicates that, for the small value of J in 1, all methods are suitable, which validates the use of finite-size calculations for the magnetization.

      As other metal complexes with L2–, the crystal structure of Cu2(L)2·2MeCN {H2L = N-[2-(tosylamino)benzylidene]-2-[(tosylamino)methyl]aniline} shows a dimericnature, with a rare double μ2-Nsulfonamido bridge between the two CuII ions, which displays seesaw-shaped distorted square-planar geometries and gives rise to an absolutely planar and nearly square-shaped Cu2N2 metallacycle that could favour some ferromagnetic coupling.
