      SnO2, Fe2O3, and BiOCl fibers were synthesized using metal chlorides as the precursors through a combined templating route. Interestingly, BiOCl fibers with different morphologies were obtained by varying the solvent and reaction temperature, and they present good photocatalytic activity for the degradation of methyl orange.

    2. Molecular Magnets

      Ferrocene-Substituted [Mn4] Dicubane Single-Molecule Magnets (pages 3541–3544)

      Katie J. Heroux, Arnold L. Rheingold and David N. Hendrickson

      Article first published online: 16 JUL 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900515

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The supramolecular interaction between various Zn(salphen) complexes and (substituted) pyridine donors has been studied in detail. The strength of the interaction depends both on the rigidity of the salen bridging fragment as well as on the presence of ortho-substituents on the pyridine ligand. Two remarkable four component assemblies were crystallographically characterized.

      Ni2(C6H19N4)2(V6O18)·2H2O (1) and Ni2(C6H19N4)2(V6O18)·H2O (2) are structurally related, as the layers from which they are built have the same composition and connectivity. The main difference between them is the layer stacking and water content. Phase 1 undergoes a reversible structural transformation at ca. 60 °C as a result of the dehydration process involving the approach of the layers.

    9. Bidentate N,N Aluminum Complexes
