      The emergent area of nanotechnology requires suitable procedures to organize materials on nanometer scale. In molecular electronics, molecular wires are essential building blocks for the construction of nanocircuits. A young area of research centered on the initial studies of the organization of coordination polymers on surfaces towards conductive molecular wires is presented.

    1. Zinc Nanofibers

      Synthesis of Zinc Hydroxyfluoride Nanofibers through an Ionic Liquid Assisted Microwave Irradiation Method (pages 2897–2900)

      Liyan Wu, Jiabiao Lian, Guixiang Sun, Xiangrong Kong and Wenjun Zheng

      Version of Record online: 5 JUN 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900271

      Zn(OH)F nanofibers were prepared from Zn5(OH)8(NO3)2·2H2O by microwave irradiation in the presence of the ionic liquid [Tmim][BF4] (1,2,3-trimethylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate). The fibers are 80–200 nm in diameter and several micrometers in length. A hydrogen bonding π–π stacking mechanism is responsible for the 1D feature of the Zn(OH)F nanofibers.

    2. P Atom Insertion into Metal–Cl Bonds

      Coordination of two bidentate phosphanylamino phosphaalkene ligands (Me3Si)2C=PN(1-Ada)PPh2 with dichlorides of palladium and platinum occurs with carbene-like insertion of both phosphaalkene phosphorus atoms into M–Cl bonds, leading to molecular chelate complexes with metalla-substituted P-chloroylide functions: the coordinated phosphaalkene P atoms behave as Lewis acids towards the chloride ions.

      The Fe2+ center of iron-substituted ferric uptake regulation protein (Fur) has been fully characterized by Mössbauer spectroscopy and parameters, as estimated by density functional theory calculations for structural models of the active center, compared to the experimental data. The model with a (3O,2N,1O) coordination (ΔEQ > 0) is found to be a better representation of the environment around the iron center in EC-Fe2+Fur.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In a doubly bridged CuII complex, two end-on azido bridges occupying the equatorial positions exhibit widely different Cu–N–Cu angles. Combined experimental and theoretical studies reveal that the two azido bridges propagate ferro- and antiferromagnetic coupling, respectively, and compete to give rise to a controlled antiferromagnetic interaction.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      In the presence of methylaluminoxane, bis(phosphanyl)amine complexes of nickel(II) showed high activity for ethylene oligomerization and high selectivities for dimer and linear α-olefins at low temperature. At high temperature, the nickel catalysts decomposed rapidly and underwent Friedel–Crafts alkylation of toluene with ethylene and the olefin oligomers.
