      A new versatile family of cytotoxic amine–phenolato TiIV complexes demonstrates favored hydrolysis features which are ligand-dependent and strongly correlated to cytotoxicity. Inert small ligands lead to cytotoxic complexes, which slowly form inactive ligand-bound clusters with water, while complexes of bulky/labile phenolato ligands mostly hydrolyze to release all free ligands and are inactive.

      A new inorganic-organic zigzag copper(II) complex, characterised both spectroscopically and magnetically, was linked covalently to the poly(N-vinylimidazole) polymer, PVI, on a vitreous carbon electrode surface and used as biomimetic material for the efficient analytical determination of hydrogen peroxide.

    2. Lewis Acid-Catalyzed Reduction

      The Role of Amine–B(C6F5)3 Adducts in the Catalytic Reduction of Imines with H2: A Computational Study (pages 2229–2237)

      The ability of an ammonium-hydridoborate couple to transfer the proton and the hydride to an imine, as well as all othersteps involved in the catalytic reduction of imines by B(C6F5)3 and H2, are revealed by accurate density functional calculations.

    3. Noncovalent Interactions

      Anion–π, Lone-Pair–π, π–π and Hydrogen-Bonding Interactions in a CuII Complex of 2-Picolinate and Protonated 4,4′-Bipyridine: Crystal Structure and Theoretical Studies (pages 2238–2246)

      Version of Record online: 9 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900110

      A CuII complex with protonated 4,4′-bipyridine and 2-picolinate units shows noncovalent anion–π, lone-pair–π, π–π and hydrogen-bonding interactions in the solid state. The anion–π and lone-pair–π interactions are characterised by Bader's theory of “atoms in molecules”. An ab initio study has been performed to analyse the anion–π binding affinity of the pyridine ring.

    4. Amidinate Complexes

      Heteroleptic Amidinate Complexes of Heavy Group 15 Elements – Synthesis, X-ray Crystal Structures and Theoretical Calculations (pages 2247–2253)

      Version of Record online: 21 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900233

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      X-ray crystal structures of six amidinate complexes [RC(NR′)2]ECl2 of the heaviest group 15 metals (Sb, Bi) clearly reveal the distinguished influence of both the metal atom and the amidinate substituent to the coordination geometry of the resulting complexes.

    5. Isomeric Preference

      Isomeric Preference in Complexes of Palladium(II) with Chelating P,N-Donor Ligands (pages 2254–2260)

      Olga del Campo, Arancha Carbayo, José V. Cuevas, Gabriel García-Herbosa and Asunción Muñoz

      Version of Record online: 8 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801196

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The structural preference of isomers of palladium complexes with chelating P,N-donor ligands is discussed and interpreted on the basis of the Maximum Hardness Principle with DFT calculations.

    6. Pd Complex Formation Mechanism

      Equilibrium and Kinetic Studies of the Reactions between Aqua[1-(2-aminoethyl)piperazine]palladium(II) and Biologically Relevant Nucleophiles (pages 2261–2270)

      Tanja Soldatović, Mohamed Shoukry, Ralph Puchta, Živadin D. Bugarčić and Rudi van Eldik

      Version of Record online: 8 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801229

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Complex-formation reactions of [Pd(AEP)(H2O)]2+, where AEP = 1-(2-aminoethyl)piperazine, with biologically relevant ligands were studied as a function of selected nucleophiles and pH by potentiometric, UV/Vis spectrophotometric and quantum chemical techniques. Coordination of glutathione involved substitution and intramolecular isomerization from N- to S-bonded.

    7. Oxido Pincer Ligands

      Oxido Pincer Ligands – Exploring the Coordination Chemistry of Bis(hydroxymethyl)pyridine Ligands for the Late Transition Metals (pages 2271–2281)

      Axel Klein, Said Elmas and Katharina Butsch

      Version of Record online: 16 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900023

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The coordination chemistry of 2,6-bis(hydroxymethyl)pyridine-based oxido pincer ligands with late transition metals reveals the formation of molecular species (complexes) in the solid state and in solution. The observed structural motifs – square-planar, trigonal-bipyramidal, square-pyramidal or octahedral – are in part interconvertible depending on the central metal atom and the solvent.

    8. Cyclometallated Pd Complexes

      A Cyclometallated (Azobenzene)palladium(II) Complex of 1,4,7-Trithiacyclononane: Synthesis and Reactivity with Thioether-Dithiolate Metalloligands, Single-Crystal X-ray Diffraction Analyses and Electrochemical Studies (pages 2282–2293)

      The cyclometallated complexes [(azobenzene)Pd(9S3)][X] {X = PF6 (6A), [(azobenzene)PdCl2] (6B)} have been prepared from the reaction of [{Pd(C6H4N=NC6H5)(μ-Cl)}2] (5) with 1,4,7-trithiacyclononane (9S3). The reaction of 5 or 6A with [(HMB)RuII3-tpdt}] [3; HMB = η6-C6Me6, tpdt = S(CH2CH2S)2] and [(Cp*)RuIII3-tpdt}] (4) results in the heterobimetallic species 7 and 8, respectively.
