      The “break-and-seal” approach was applied to synthesize the new fulleride [K(DB24C8)(DME)]2C60·DME. The C602– anion is disordered assuming two orientations. The distribution of the bond lengths within the fullerene has been discussed with respect to a Jahn–Teller distortion.

    3. Palladium Clusters

      DFT Study of Small Palladium Clusters Pdn and Their Interaction with a CO Ligand (n = 1–9) (pages 3904–3911)

      Giuseppe Zanti and Daniel Peeters

      Article first published online: 30 JUL 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900513

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A significant occupation of the 5s orbital explains the existence and cohesion of Pd–Pd bonds, which are described by sd hybrid orbitals and present triplet-state small clusters. The adsorption of a CO ligand goes through a back-bonding interaction favoured by a high 4d and a low 5s population that affects the Pd–Pd bond and restores a singlet ground state for the small clusters.

      1-Alkyl-2-[(o-thioalkyl)phenylazo]imidazole (SRaaiNR′) acts as tridentate chelator in [Ni(SRaaiNR′)2](ClO4)2. NiII-azido-SRaaiNR′ defines a μ1,1-N3-bridged NiII dimer and [Ni(SRaaiNR′)(N3)2]2 shows intramolecular ferromagnetic coupling. According to an EPR study, electrochemical oxidation of [Ni(SRaaiNR′)2](ClO4)2 generates a NiIII species.

      Article first published online: 31 JUL 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900621

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      DFT indicates Cp2Mn2(NO)2(CO)2 to have six structures within ca. 3 kcal/mol of each other with various combinations of bridging and terminal CO and NO groups. The triplet structures Cp2Mn2(µ-NO)2(µ-CO) and Cp2Mn2(µ-NO)2 are global minima. The monomer CpMn(NO)2 is predicted to be unstable with respect to dimerization to Cp2Mn2(µ-NO)2(NO)2. The latter molecule has two different structures of similar energies with very different Mn–Mn distances. Structures for Cp2Mn2(µ-NO)2(NO)X (X = NO2 and η5-C5H5) and Cp3Mn3(µ-NO)33-NO) close to the experimental structures are predicted.

      Two new doubly μ-phenoxo-bridged homodinuclear PrIII and NdIII complexes have been synthesized by using a heptadentate Schiff base ligand. In the complexes each LnIII center adopts a distorted square antiprism geometry. Detailed photophysical investigations of the precursor ligand and interesting solid-state photoluminescence properties of the Ln complexes in the NIR region have been reported.
