      Ion-pairing is not solely the result of electrostatic interaction between a positive and a negative charge. Specific geometries for ion pairs may result from H-bonding interactions and could influence the thermodynamics and/or kinetics in organometallic chemistry.

      Three dimeric [Cu2(μ-purine derivative)4] entities were employed in the construction of supramolecular architectures from their self-assembly process. DFT calculations were carried out to evaluate the correlation of the exchange value with several structural parameters and the nature of the bridging ligand.

    4. Copper-Verdazyl Complex

      Structure, Spectral and Magnetic Properties of 3-(p-Pyridyl)-1,5-diphenylverdazyl (p-PyV) and the Binuclear Copper(II) Radical Complex [Cu2(OCOCH3)4(p-PyV)2] (pages 2354–2361)

      Di(pyridin-2-yl) ligands form with the VIVO2+ ion mono- and bis-chelated complexes with (Npyr, Npyr), (Npyr, CO) and (Npyr, O) coordination. The amino acid derivatives promote the deprotonation and coordination of the amide nitrogen to give [VOLH–1]+ and [VOLH–2] species. The structures of the complexes and their EPR parameters are predicted through DFTmethods.

    6. Metal Template Synthesis

      Enantioselective, High-Yielding Synthesis of Alcohol-Functionalized Diphosphanes Utilizing Asymmetric Control with a Chiral Auxiliary (pages 2375–2382)

      Sumod A. Pullarkat, Yuen Lin Cheow, Yongxin Li and Pak-Hing Leung

      Version of Record online: 21 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900095

      An organoplatinum complex was employed as a promoter and chiral auxiliary in the asymmetric Diels–Alder reaction of phosphane-functionalized terminal alkenols with the diene 3,4-dimethyl-1-phenylphosphole. The cycloaddition reactions proceeded smoothly at room temperature, leading to the generation of alcohol-functionalized diphosphane ligands in highyields and excellent stereoselectivities.

      Single-crystal LaF3 with a ring-like structure is prepared by a simple molten salt route without the need for a template. The intrinsic crystallography of the sample is studied by XRD and HRTEM, and a formation mechanism involving central-etching of nanoplates is proposed on the basis of experiments performed with varying reaction times. The fluorescent properties of this compound are characterized by doping with Eu3+ cation.

      Mechanistic Information on CuII Metalation and Transmetalation of Chlorophylls (pages 2393–2406)

      Łukasz Orzeł, Rudi van Eldik, Leszek Fiedor and Grażyna Stochel

      Version of Record online: 28 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800662

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Kinetic studies on the reactions of chlorophyll a and pheophytin a with CuAc2 showed that the rates and mechanisms of these reactions depend strongly on the properties of the solvent. As a consequence, the transmetallation in MeOH leads to the formation of a stable bimetallic intermediate, whereas in MeCN it terminates at the very initial stage of the reaction.

    10. Color Tuning of Ir Complexes

      Tuning the Emission Color of Iridium(III) Complexes with Ancillary Ligands: A Combined Experimental and Theoretical Study (pages 2407–2414)

      Version of Record online: 28 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801185

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Color tuning of iridium(III) complexes is achieved by attaching electron-donating or electron-withdrawing substituents to the ancillary ligand LX. The calculated results show that the low-lying excitations have MLCT and ILCT character. For the emission process, the main transition ofFIr(acac) is [d(Ir) + π(CN) [RIGHTWARDS ARROW] π*(CN)] and those of FIr(dbm) and FIr(natfac) are [d(Ir) + π(LX) [RIGHTWARDS ARROW] π*(LX)].

    11. N-Rich Bidentate Ligands

      Version of Record online: 23 APR 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900042

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The secondary and tertiary 1,3,5-triazapenta-1,3-dienes 2 and 3 were prepared either from amidines and imidoyl chlorides or from N-imidoylimidoates 5 and primary amines. Treatment with MII salts or BF3 led to novel 1:1 and 2:1 coordination compounds with six-membered anionic or neutral triazapentadienyl chelate ligands.
