      Jorge S. Gancheff, Rodrigo Q. Albuquerque, Andrés Guerrero-Martínez, Tania Pape, Luisa De Cola and F. Ekkehardt Hahn

      Article first published online: 12 AUG 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900496

      The reaction of [ReOCl3(PPh3)2] with 1,2-bis(2,3-dimercaptobenzamido)ethane (H4-1) leads to the formation of a novel double-stranded dinuclear oxido ReV complex: [ReO(1)]22–. DFT calculations were performed to gain insight into the structural and electronic properties of the complex anion.

    2. Polarity and Quantum Yields

      The Reasons for Ligand-Dependent Quantum Yields and Absorption Spectrum of Four Polypyridylruthenium(II) Complexes with a Tetrazolate-Based Ligand: TDDFT Study (pages 4052–4061)

      Xiao-Na Li, Zhi-Jian Wu, Hong-Jie Zhang, Zhen-Jun Si, Liang Zhou and Xiao-Juan Liu

      Article first published online: 12 AUG 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900344

      The strong polarity of RuL2 is the main reason for a low quantum yield, as it can easily convey energy to the solvent through nonradiative pathways. An electron-donating CH3 group in RuL2Me can greatly reduce this nonradiative process, which increases its quantum yield.

      Mo complexes of the general formula Mo(PN)(CO)4 containing both achiral and chiral P-N donor bidentate ligands based on 2-aminopyridine were prepared. The oxidative addition of allyl bromide toMo(PN)(CO)4 was studied with PN=N-2-amino-(diisopropylphosphanyl)pyridine(PN-iPr). The mechanism of the oxidative addition was analyzed by DFT/B3LYP calculations.

    7. Sulfenic Esters

      Spectroscopic Characterization and Conformational Properties of S-(Fluoroformyl)-O-(acetyl) Thioperoxide and S-(Fluoroformyl)-O-(trifluoroacetyl) Thioperoxide (pages 4094–4104)

      Marlene Cuaquira Reina, Carlos O. Della Védova, Sonia E. Ulic, Helge Willner and Heinz Oberhammer

      Article first published online: 7 AUG 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900128

      The conformational properties of sulfenic esters FC(O)SOC(O)CH3 and FC(O)SOC(O)CF3 were studied by vibrational spectroscopy and by theoretical calculations. Both gaseous compounds exhibit conformational equilibria at room temperature; the most stable form possesses gauche orientation around the S–O bond and synperiplanar orientation of both carbonyl groups with respect to the S–O bond (C1 symmetry).

    8. Nanocube Gas Sensors

      New ZnSnO3 nanocubes were synthesized by a simple solid-state chemical reaction between metal salts and NaOH; this process is cheap and proceeds in a relatively simple manner. ZnSnO3 nanocubes were found to possess good gas-sensing properties for ethanol and methanal; thus these materials may potentially be used as gas sensors.

    9. ROP Catalysts

      Syntheses and Structures of Tris-β-Diketiminate Lanthanide Complexes and Their High Activity for Ring-Opening Polymerization of ϵ-Caprolactone and L-Lactide (pages 4110–4118)

      Mingqiang Xue, Rui Jiao, Yong Zhang, Yingming Yao and Qi Shen

      Article first published online: 11 AUG 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900313

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Tris-β-diketiminate lanthanide complexes and mono-β-diketiminate lanthanide dichlorides were synthesized and characterized. The high catalytic activity for the polymerization of ϵ-caprolactone and L-lactide shown by tris-β-diketiminate lanthanide complexes may be attributed to the activated Ln–β-diketiminate bond caused by the steric demand of the three β-diketiminate ligands.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Anionic nitrosyl tungsten dihydrides and neutral monohydrides with one or two acidic η1- or η2-(2-aminoethyl)dimethylphosphane ligands (edmp) were studied in solution as protonic–hydridic model systems. Complexes of the type W(H)(edmp)(NO)L2 (L = phosphane, phosphite) underwent prototropic equilibration with the isomeric W(H2)(NHCH2CH2PMe2)(NO)L2 species causing either H2 release or HW/HN exchange.

      The structure and stereochemistries of a series of silyl-substituted ansa-tris(allyl) complexes of lithium, sodium and potassium are dependent on the radius of the metal cation, the denticity of the co-ligands and the substituents on the silicon atoms.
