      Trigonal bipyramidal bis(olefin) amido 18-electron complexes of RhI or IrI are easily oxidized (E°1/2 ≈ –0.55 V vs. Fc+/Fc) to give aminyl radical complexes. High-resolution pulse EPR spectroscopy was used to demonstrate that both the RhI and IrI aminyl complexes have remarkably similar electronic structures (60 % of the spin density at the N center, 30 % at the metal).

      An Eyring analysis was carried out on the isomerization of cis-[PdCl2{Ph2P(CH2CH2O)3CH2CH2PPh2-P,P′}] (cis-1). Crystal structures of cis-1, cis-2, and trans-2, supported our conclusions as to the nature of the isomerization mechanism of the two square-planar metallacrown ethers.

    4. Therapeutic Radiopharmaceuticals

      Stability Constants and Dissociation Rates of the EDTMP Complexes of Samarium(III) and Yttrium(III) (pages 4719–4727)

      153Sm(EDTMP) and 90Y(EDTMP) are used as bone therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals. The stability and protonation constants of the complexes indicate the presence of the [Sm(HEDTMP)Ca]2– species in a simple plasma model. In the pH range 7–9, Sm(EDTMP) and Y(EDTMP) dissociate much faster than the Sm(EDTA) and Y(EDTA) complexes.

      Ai-Mei Zhu, Qin-Yan Jin, Ding-Xian Jia, Jian-Sheng Gu and Yong Zhang

      Version of Record online: 10 SEP 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800577

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The structures of lanthanoid selenidostannates [Hdien][Ln(dien)2(SnSe4)] [Ln = Sm (1), Eu (2)] consist of a tetraselenidostannate anion [SnSe4]4– coordinated to a [Ln(dien)2]3+ fragment as a chelating ligand. A water molecule, which leads to the formation of dimeric selenidostannate[Eu2(dien)4(μ-OH)2]Sn2Se6 (3), prevents the [SnSe4]4– anion from coordinating to the lanthanide center.

      Mononuclear Lewis acids, HgR2 (e.g. R = C6F4-o-X, X = H, F, NO2) readily form 1:1 or 1:2 adducts, [HgR2(arene)] or [HgR2(arene)2] with suitable arenes [e.g. 1,2,4,5-tetramethylbenzene, (TMB) or 1,2,4-trimethoxybenzene (TMO)], characterised by long (weak) Hg···C or Hg···O contacts. Crystal packing of these molecules exhibits stabilising supramolecular synthons such as aligned fluoroarene and/or arene rings and weak C–H···X contacts.
