    1. Pyrazole Complexes

      Pyrazole Complexes and Supramolecular Chemistry (pages 4913–4925)

      Julio Pérez and Lucía Riera

      Version of Record online: 26 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900694

      Complexes of N–H pyrazoles have a rich and varied supramolecular chemistry in which the formation of intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonds is a major theme. These complexes can be used as precursors for polymetallic species, liquid crystals, self-assembled structures, and receptors for anions.

    1. Microporous MOFs

      Photoluminescent Porous Modular Lanthanide–Vanadium–Organic Frameworks (pages 4931–4945)

      João Rocha, Filipe A. Almeida Paz, Fa-Nian Shi, Rute A. S. Ferreira, Tito Trindade and Luís D. Carlos

      Version of Record online: 5 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900558

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Porous mixed-metal MOFs based on the self-assembly of cyclic trinuclear vanadium-based anionic units with cationic aqua-based lanthanide complexes are easily isolated either by facile one-pot synthesis or by slow evaporation. The co-existence of V4+ and Eu3+ in the same material permits the fine tuning of the photoluminescence emission from white to the purplish-blue.

    2. Gas Sorption in Microporous MOFs

      Hysteretic Gas Sorption in a Microporous Metal–Organic Framework with Nonintersecting 3D Channels (pages 4946–4949)

      Jinwoo Seo and Hyungphil Chun

      Version of Record online: 21 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900733

      A microporous metal–organic framework based on infinite chains of Zn2+ ions bridged by 2,7-naphthalenedicarboxylate shows unexpected gas sorption behavior typical for mesoporous materials as a result of the unique physical environment of the pores.

    3. Intraligand Rearrangements

      Bis(oxazolinylmethyl) Derivatives of C4H4E Heterocycles (E = NH, O, S) as C2-Chiral Meridionally Coordinating Ligands for Nickel and Chromium (pages 4950–4961)

      Felix Konrad, Julio Lloret Fillol, Christoph Rettenmeier, Hubert Wadepohl and Lutz H. Gade

      Version of Record online: 22 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900789

      Bis(oxazolinylmethyl) and related ligands coordinate meridionally to transition metals. Intraligand rearrangements in bis(oxazolinylmethyl)pyrroles, which are protolytically induced, lead to the formation of stable planar complex structures.

    4. Ruthenium Phenanthrolines

      Synthesis and Photophysical Properties of 3,8-Disubstituted 1,10-Phenanthrolines and Their Ruthenium(II) Complexes (pages 4962–4971)

      Michael Karnahl, Sven Krieck, Helmar Görls, Stefanie Tschierlei, Michael Schmitt, Jürgen Popp, Daniel Chartrand, Garry S. Hanan, Robert Groarke, Johannes G. Vos and Sven Rau

      Version of Record online: 13 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900310

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A series of novel 3,8-disubstituted phenanthroline ruthenium complexes is presented. A detailed spectroscopic investigation of the absorption properties of the 3,8-dibromo-1,10-phenanthroline ruthenium complex by using resonance Raman spectroscopy reveals that the lowest-energy 1MLCT state is predominantly located on the substituted phenanthroline for low-energy excitation.

    5. Carbon Nitride Precursors

      On the Formation and Decomposition of the Melonate Ion in Cyanate and Thiocyanate Melts and the Crystal Structure of Potassium Melonate, K3[C6N7(NCN)3] (pages 4972–4981)

      Andreas Sattler and Wolfgang Schnick

      Version of Record online: 15 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900585

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The synthesis of melonates by reaction of the polymer melon with KSCN melts was advanced by variation of the melts and studied by using thermal analysis. We report the first synthesis of melonates form cyanate melts as well as a subsequent degradation reaction leading to tricyanomelaminates. We also describe facile access to sodium melonate and potassium tricyanomelaminate.

    6. Bridge Distance Dependency

      Magnetic and Electrochemical Properties of a Heterobridged μ-Phenoxido–μ1,1-Azide Dinickel(II) Compound: A Unique Example Demonstrating the Bridge Distance Dependency of Exchange Integral (pages 4982–4988)

      Rajesh Koner, Susanta Hazra, Michel Fleck, Arpita Jana, C. Robert Lucas and Sasankasekhar Mohanta

      Version of Record online: 19 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900686

      A heterobridged μ-phenoxido–μ1,1-azide dinickel(II) compound [NiII2(HL1)31,1-N3)]·3H2O (1) derived from the tetradentate Schiff base ligand N-(2-hydroxyethyl)-3-methoxysalicylaldimine (H2L1) was prepared. A unique example of the dependence of strength of magnetic exchange interaction on the metal–ligand bridge distance was found.

    7. Thiacalix[4]arene-Based Compounds

      Self-Assembly from Two-Dimensional Layered Networks to Tetranuclear Structures: Syntheses, Structures, and Properties of Four Copper–Thiacalix[4]arene Compounds (pages 4989–4994)

      Two 2D CuI–thiacalix[4]arene compounds were synthesized by the solvothermalmethod and reassembled in air at room temperature to form two tetranuclear structures of CuII. The thiacalix[4]arene ligands in all these four compounds adopt the cone conformation.

    8. Lactide Polymerization

      Magnesium(II) Complexes of the dpp-BIAN Radical-Anion: Synthesis, Molecular Structure, and Catalytic Activity in Lactide Polymerization (pages 4995–5003)

      Igor L. Fedushkin, Alexander G. Morozov, Valentina A. Chudakova, Georgy K. Fukin and Vladimir K. Cherkasov

      Version of Record online: 13 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900710

      The use of acenaphthene-1,2-diimine as ancillary ligand allowed preparation of monomeric magnesium complexes with terminal nitroxide, amide, and keteniminategroups. The synthesized complexes proved to be very active catalysts for the ring-opening polymerization of lactides in solution as well as in the melt of monomer.

    9. Dawson Sandwich Complexes

      An Unprecedented Trinuclear Dawson Sandwich Complex with Internal Lacuna: Synthesis and 31P NMR Spectroscopic Analysis of the Symmetrical [NaNi3(H2O)2(P2W15O56)2]17– and [CoNi3(H2O)2(P2W15O56)2]16– Anions (pages 5004–5009)

      The present work reports on the synthesis and characterization of the Dawson sandwich complexes [NaNi3(H2O)2(P2W15O56)2]17– and [CoNi3(H2O)2(P2W15O56)2]16–; their electrochemical behaviour is also reported.

    10. Bridging Hydrides

      Metal-Hydride Bonding in Higher Alkali Metal Boron Monohydrides (pages 5010–5016)

      Joanna Haywood and Andrew E. H. Wheatley

      Version of Record online: 14 OCT 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900756

      Et3BHM (M = Li, Na, K) was treated with polydentate donors (L) to give a variety of ion-separated and ion-bonded dimers. For M = Li, L = TMEDA ion separation and the formation of [Et3BH][Li·2TMEDA]+ is noted. In contrast, for M = Na, K and L = TMEDA, PMDETA isostructural (Et3BHM·L)2 dimers are formed based on M2H2 cores incorporating pyramidalized bridging hydrides. Solution data point to dimer retention in non-polar solvents.
