    2. Mesoporous Zeolites

      Enhancing the Porosity of Mesoporous Carbon-Templated ZSM-5 by Desilication (pages 5185–5189)

      Martin S. Holm, Kresten Egeblad, Peter N. R. Vennestrøm, Christian G. Hartmann, Marina Kustova and Claus H. Christensen

      Version of Record online: 22 OCT 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800781

      A carbon-templated zeolite ZSM-5 was desilicated to obtain a multi-level hierarchical material with a very high mesopore volume. Carbon-templating and desilication can produce mesopores of different sizes, and by coupling the two protocols we observe contributions to mesoporosity over a wide range.

      GaIII halide and benzene reaction media have been utilized to synthesize a selection oforganometallic lanthanide–arene complexes in high yields. The lability of the arene ligands provides a straightforward route for the exchange of larger polyaromatic hydrocarbon ligands, such as naphthalene or pyrene, resulting in the isolation and characterization of new compounds.

    2. Bismuth-Rich Subhalides

      Bi16I4 – A New Bismuth Subiodide: An Analysis of Molecular Packing and Electronic Structures of the Compounds in the BimI4 (m = 14, 16, 18) Family (pages 5196–5202)

      The new bismuth subhalide Bi16I4 has been synthesized and structurally characterized. It consists of 1D ribbons with a corrugated Bi-atom structure highly similar to the layered structure of bismuth metal. The electronic and geometric structural features of all three known bismuth-rich subhalides are described and rationalized, giving some insights into the stability of this family of compounds.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Trigonal-bipyramidal oxidovanadium(V) complexes {V} containing ligands such as those derived from the trichiral amino-tetraol (shown) are able to model vanadate-dependent peroxidases.

      Visible-Light-Excited Singlet-Oxygen Luminescence Probe Based on Re(CO)3Cl(aeip) (pages 5214–5219)

      Yan-Ju Liu and Ke-Zhi Wang

      Version of Record online: 17 OCT 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800699

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The ReI complex acts as a luminescence probe specific for singlet oxygen (1O2) under visible light excitation at 410 nm, which results in remarkable luminescence enhancements, with 8- and 18.7-fold increases in the luminescence quantum yields in neutral and alkaline media, respectively. The visible light excitation may allow the complex to be useful for biosystems.

    5. Sublimation of Te Halides

      Version of Record online: 20 OCT 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800700

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The sublimation of TeBr4 and TeI4 was studied by gas-phase electron diffraction/mass spectrometry (GED/MS). TeBr4(s) forms gaseous TeBr2 and Br2. TeI4(s) decomposes to I2(g) and Te(s) with a small amount of TeI2 forming. “Metallic” Te accumulated in the solid phase vaporizes at above 400 °C as predominately Te2.

      3d Schiff base complexes (3d = Cu, Ni) used as ligands react with gadolinium ions to yield dinuclear 3d-Gd or trinuclear 3d-Gd-3d complexes depending on the 3d/4f ratio if poorly coordinating anions such as triflate are used, whereas the strong affinity of nitrato anions for lanthanides onlyyields dinuclear complexes regardless of the 3d/4f ratio.

      An extended metal atom chain (EMAC) with an unsymmetrical trinickel core, Ni3(dpa)4(CH3CN)(PF6)2·2CH2Cl2, (2CH2Cl2) was synthesized in crystalline form. Compound 1 contains two non-magnetic NiII units in a nearly square-planar arrangement and a paramagnetic entity in a pyramidal environment. The magnetic behavior differs considerably from that of symmetrical trinickel EMACs.

      The coordination polymer [Mn6O2(O2CEt)10(H2O)4]n (2), aggregated from newly prepared hexanuclear, mixed-valence Mn oxide clusters [Mn6O2(O2CEt)10(H2O)4] (1), is reported. Complex 2 contains cage-likeMn6 cluster building units linked by the propionato ligands to form a 1D, zigzag-like chain network. Both the polymeric 2 and the discrete cluster 1 display moderately strong antiferromagnetic behavior.

    13. Pyrophosphate Copper Complex

      Synthesis, Structural, Magnetic and Thermal Characterization of {[Cu(bipy)]2(μ-HP2O7)(μ-Cl)}·H2O (pages 5281–5286)

      Oluwatayo F. Ikotun, Elizabeth M. Higbee, Wayne Ouellette, Francesc Lloret, Miguel Julve and Robert P. Doyle

      Version of Record online: 16 OCT 2008 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800617

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Copper(II) hydroxide reacts in acidic water with 2,2′-bipyridine and sodium pyrophosphate to give the neutral dinuclear complex {[Cu(bipy)]2(μ-HP2O7)(μ-Cl)}·H2O. The asymmetric [Cu(bipy)]2+ units are bridged by bis-bidentate pyrophosphate and an axially bridging chlorine atom. The incorporation of an additional bridge (halide) and the presence of protonated pyrophosphate (HP2O73–) in the structure are both rare for this family of structures. The complex is analyzed and discussed with respect to the magneto-structure characteristics.
