      The Hg-substituted type-I clathrates K8Hg3.19(5)Ge42.81(5) and Rb8Hg3.03(7)Ge42.97(7) were obtained by solid-state reactions starting with the corresponding Zintl phases A4Ge9. The crystal structure was refined from powder and single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. The Ge framework is partially substituted by Hg at the 6c sites.

    2. Inorganic Cascade Reaction

      A Proton-Triggered Cascade Reaction Involving a Heavy p-Block Multiple Bond: Transformation of the Diphosphene C5Me5P=PC5Me5 into the Cationic Cage [C10Me10P2H]+ (pages 4511–4515)

      Version of Record online: 4 SEP 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800766

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A remarkable cascade reaction involving a heavy main group multiple bond is triggered by protonation of the diphosphene C5Me5P=PC5Me5 leading to the direct formation of a C10P2 cage. The proximity ofa C=C π-system to a developing positive charge on one of the phosphorus centers is suggested by calculations to be the key mechanistic feature.

      After the discovery that iminoether and ketimine ligands are able to activate the trans geometry of platinum(II) complexes towards antitumor activity, investigations have been extended to amidines which represent a third class of bioisosters. Greater stability and water solubility are two major advantages of the new compounds.

      The incorporation of a terpyridineplatinum(II) into a sequence-selective polyamide has been explored, with the aim of producing cytotoxic molecules that display DNA sequence specificity. To facilitate this a terpyridineplatinum(II)-based metallointercalator has been developed, which can be incorporated into sequence-selective polyamides using standard machine-assisted peptide coupling techniques.
