      A practical and safe procedure for TlBH4 synthesis by using TlOAc has been established. This success has led to a direct approach to the preparation and characterization of TlTp-related complexes that arekey intermediates for various metal–Tp complexes. The method has successfully been applied to the efficient synthesis of TlTp4Bo3MeCpenta from a new and hard-to-obtain chiral pyrazole.

      Inverse-perovskite Sc3AlN is presented as the first ternary phase of the system. Stoichiometric Sc3AlN(111) films were synthesized on MgO substrates by magnetron sputter epitaxy as shown by elastic recoil detection, X-ray diffraction, and electron microscopy. A unit-cell parameter of 4.40 Å is obtained by measurement and quantum chemistry calculation. Enthalpy comparisons show that Sc3AlN is thermodynamically stable with respect to its binaries.

In the presence of oxygen, the oxygenation product [Co(CTPPO)(NO)], a {Co(NO)}7 cobalt nitrosyl complex, was obtained.

      Mesomorphic ortho-palladated [Pd(μ-X)L]2(X = CH3COO, Cl) complexes with unusual imines containing substituted dibenzo-18-crown-6-ethers (HL) show a preference for smectic C phases and form stable Langmuir films at the air–water interface. Complexation with potassium perchlorate produces a significant increase in the mesophase range and stability.

      Using density functional theory (BP86) the global minima of both Cp2FeNi(CO)3 and Cp2FeNi(CO)2 are found to have two bridging CO groups. The coaxial structure of Cp2FeNi(CO) prefers an open-shell high spin state whereas the isoelectronic Cp2Co2(CO) prefers a closed shell state with a Co≡Co triple bond. However, the global minimum for the monocarbonyl is a singlet perpendicular Cp2FeNi(CO) structure with an iron-bonded terminal CO group.

      Optical resolution of [Co(H3L)]3+ was carried out by fractional crystallization ofthe diastereomeric salt with [Sb2{(R,R)-tart}2]2–. Λ-[Co(H2L)][Sb2{(R,R)-tart}2]·4H2O, which was isolated from the lesssoluble part, gave Λ-[Co(H3L)](ClO4)3·1.5H2O and Λ-[Co(L)] upon further treatment. The crystal structures of these latter complexes are compared with those of the racemic structures.

      Two new (oxamato)copper(II) complexes have been synthesized in the presence of the azido ligand. The first complex has a metallamacrocycle structure in which two dinuclear copper(II) metallacyclophane anions are linked by two azido ligands, and the second is a 2D brick-wall-like layer structure. The magnetic properties of the metallamacrocycle complex are analyzed in connection with its structure.

      In a microwave-assisted hydrothermalsystem, the reaction between niobic acid (Nb2O5·nH2O) and sodium hydroxide produced sodium niobium oxide powders with different structures and morphologies. These variations were a result of changes in the concentration of the reactant or the duration of the reaction.
