    1. (Phosphanyl-carbene) Pd Complexes

      A Simple Building-Block Route to (Phosphanyl-carbene)palladium Complexes via Intermolecular Addition of Functionalised Phosphanes to Isocyanides (pages 1313–1316)

      Michael R. Eberhard, Bart van Vliet, Laura Durán Páchon, Gadi Rothenberg, Graham Eastham, Huub Kooijman, Anthony L. Spek and Cornelis J. Elsevier

      Version of Record online: 17 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801067

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A simple modular synthesis of (phosphanyl-carbene)Pd complexes is presented. This building-block approach to a range of Pd pre-catalysts containing a ‘sticky' carbene moiety and a hemi-labile phosphane ligand avoids the synthesis of imidazoliumsalts or free carbenes. The design involves a new intermolecular addition of the polar head group of a readily available phosphane-alcohol or -amine to a Pd-coordinated isocyanide.

    2. Octasilsesquioxanes

      An Efficient Approach to Monophenyl-Functionalized Octasilsesquioxanes (pages 1317–1319)

      Hongzhi Liu, Shin-ichi Kondo, Nobuhiro Takeda and Masafumi Unno

      Version of Record online: 2 MAR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900012

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      An effective and milder route to organofunctional trichlorosilanes is reported: mono- and tribrominated trichloro(p-tolyl)silane can be selectively prepared by controlling the ratio of N-bromosuccinimide(NBS) to trichloro(p-tolyl)silane. From these compounds, several monofunctionalized octasilsesquioxanes (T8) are obtained, which are very useful precursors for the preparation of new materials.

      Version of Record online: 19 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801135

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The influence of different types of bridging ligands on the thermodynamic and kinetic properties of dinuclear PtII complexes was investigated for this study. The distancebetween the PtII centres and the electron acceptor/donator ability of the bridging ligand have proven to be the crucial factors.

    3. Bioinorganic Chemistry

      Effects of Concentration of Some Lanthanide(III) Complexes of 1,7-Bis(carboxymethyl)-1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane on Bis(p-nitrophenyl)phosphate Hydrolysis (pages 1339–1346)

      C. Allen Chang, Bo Hong Wu and Chih-Hsiang Hsiao

      Version of Record online: 23 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801173

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A detailed analysis of the BNPP phosphodiester bond hydrolysis rate constants data vs. lanthanide complex concentration at pH 7.90, 9.35, and 9.90 indicates that dimeric species are more reactive than their monomeric analogues. The overall formation constants for the (Ln-dimer)-BNPP species are about 104M–1 and the hydrolysis reactivities are in the order Eu > Yb > Er.

    4. Cu/ZnO Catalyst Precursors

      Minerals as Model Compounds for Cu/ZnO Catalyst Precursors: Structural and Thermal Properties and IR Spectra of Mineral and Synthetic (Zincian) Malachite, Rosasite and Aurichalcite and a Catalyst Precursor Mixture (pages 1347–1357)

      Version of Record online: 26 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800880

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      High-precision thermochemical calculations (G3, CBS-Q) and DFT methods were employed to establish the strength of the sulfur–sulfur bond. The delocalization of the spin density in the blablaS–S6–Sblabla diradical at the B3LYP/6-311G(2d,p) level is shown in the graphic.

    6. Hydroamination

      Aminotroponiminate Zinc Complexes with Different Leaving Groups as Catalysts for the Intramolecular Hydroamination of Alkenes (pages 1369–1375)

      Karolin Löhnwitz, Matthias J. Molski, Anja Lühl, Peter W. Roesky, Maximilian Dochnahl and Siegfried Blechert

      Version of Record online: 19 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800905

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Six different (aminotroponiminato)phenylzinc and bis(trimethylsilyl)amido complexes were prepared and fully characterized. The new complexes were compared with the corresponding zinc methyl complexes to study the influence of the leaving group of the zinc atom in the catalytic hydroamination / cyclization reaction.

    7. Crystal Engineering

      Morphogenesis of CuI Nanocrystals by a TSA-Assisted Photochemical Route: Synthesis, Optical Properties, and Growth Mechanism (pages 1376–1384)

      Baocheng Zhang, Anjian Xie, Yuhua Shen, Liangbao Yang, Yiping Huang and Jingjing Lu

      Version of Record online: 18 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800966

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Optical materials consisting of γ-CuI nanocrystals with diamond and platelet morphologies were synthesised by utilising UV-irradiated 12-tungstosilicate as a reducing agent for the reduction of Cu2+ and I2 under ambient conditions. The synthetic processes were carefully followed by UV/Vis absorption and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. A possible mechanism for the formation of diamond and platelet morphologies has been proposed.

    8. Aminopyridinate Complexes

      First Row Transition Metal Aminopyridinates – the Missing Complexes (pages 1385–1392)

      Germund Glatz, Serhiy Demeshko, Günter Motz and Rhett Kempe

      Version of Record online: 26 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801094

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Aminopyridinate complexes of Sc3+, Mn2+, Fe3+, Fe2+, Co2+ and Zn2+ are synthesised and characterised and their magnetic behaviour investigated. One specific aminopyridinato ligand is able to stabilise all first row transition metal complexes, which indicates the high versatility of this ligand class.

    9. Microsolvation

      Sulfur Dioxide and Water: Structures and Energies of the Hydrated Species SO2·nH2O, [HSO3]·nH2O, [SO3H]·nH2O, and H2SO3·nH2O (n = 0–8) (pages 1393–1405)

      Ralf Steudel and Yana Steudel

      Version of Record online: 17 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801158

      A large number of hydrates of oxo SIV species have been studied theoretically. The conversion of SO2·6H2O into its isomer H2SO3·5H2O is predicted to be exothermic. The relative stability of sulfonate and hydrogensulfite anions [SHO3] is reversed by solvation with more than four water molecules. In a polar continuum less water molecules have the same effect.

    10. Coordination Polymers

      Synthesis, Crystal Structure, and Thermal and Magnetic Properties of New Transition Metal–Pyrazine Coordination Polymers (pages 1406–1413)

      Mario Wriedt, Inke Jeß and Christian Näther

      Version of Record online: 26 FEB 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801082

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four new (thiocyanato)metal coordination compounds with pyrazine as N-donor ligand are prepared and their structures and thermal and magnetic properties determined. The ligand-rich 1:2 compoundstransform quantitatively into new ligand-deficient 1:1 compounds, some of which show a different magnetic behavior, depending on the connection mode of the thiocyanate anions, on heating.
