      N2 activation by a nitride: reaction ofmatrix-isolated Ti2(μ-N)2 with N2 affords several new N2 complexes with different degrees of N2 bond activation. In neat solid N2 matrices, the complex [{(N2)4Ti}2(μ-N)2(μ-η22-N2)] is formed.

    2. Hydrogen Storage Materials

      Influence of Surface Chemistry on Dehydrogenation in Carbon Cryogel Ammonia Borane Nanocomposites (pages 599–603)

      Saghar Sepehri, Betzaida Batalla García and Guozhong Cao

      Version of Record online: 14 JAN 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200800814

      Incorporating ammonia–borane (AB) into the pores of carbon cryogels lowers the dehydrogenation temperatures of AB. Boron- and nitrogen-modification of carbon cryogels can promote the destabilization of ABfurther and thus lower its dehydrogenation temperature and activation energy relative to the unmodified carbon cryogel scaffold with the same pore size.

      Mesoporous carbon materials with ultra-thin carbon pore walls and highly dispersed and uniform Ni nanoparticles have been prepared by using SBA-15 silicas as hard templates and 2,3-dihydroxynaphthalene as a carbon precursor. These unique nickel–carbon nanostructures have accessible porosity with relatively large surface areas and pore volumes.

    2. Multimetallic Structures

      Heterometallic Ferrocene-Rhenium Complexes Linked by an Aminoethylglycine Scaffold (pages 613–621)

      Aminoethylglycine (aeg) derivatives Fe[C5H4-CO-aeg-OtBu][C5H5] and Fe[C5H4-CO-aeg-OtBu]2 have been synthesized and further reacted with dpa-ph-CO2H or py-AcO. These products are treated with Re toassemble heterometallic structures, which are characterized by spectroscopic methods including fluorescence emission spectroscopy and by electrochemistry.

      Reaction of [VO(acac)2] withCH3CONHNH2 provides [(Hdmpz)OVIV(μ-acac)(μ-O)(μ-O2CCH3)VVO(acac)] (Hdmpz = 3,5-dimethylpyrazole) with a valence-localized electronic structure in the solid state as well as in the solution phase. Crystallization leads to enantiomerically enriched bulk material. Both enantiomers of the complex are observed in solution in the presence of L- and D-arabinose.

      New substituted 2,3-dichloro-1-λ3σ2-P,3-λ3σ3-P-diphosphapropenes and their reaction products with W(CO)5(thf) and PdCl2(cod) are reported. The palladiumatom induces an intramolecular addition of CH(tBu) of Mes* to the P=C bond with the formation of a phosphaindane ring.

    5. Polymer Production

      Zinc(II) Homogeneous and Heterogeneous Species and Their Application for the Ring-Opening Polymerisation of rac-Lactide (pages 635–642)

      Version of Record online: 13 JAN 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801049

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Eight new ZnII complexes have been prepared and fully characterised. In the solid state the complexes are either monometallic or trimetallic, depending on the nature of the ligand. The ZnII species have been tested for the ring-opening polymerisation of rac-lactide in the melt, conversions upto 90 % yield have been achieved. A heterogeneous analogue has also been prepared, which is also active and more controlled for the ROP of rac-lactide.

    6. Hydrogen Transfer

      Hydron-Transfer Processes Involving an Organotitanium Oxide and Alcohols (pages 643–653)

      Jorge J. Carbó, Octavio González-del Moral, Avelino Martín, Miguel Mena, J.-M. Poblet and Cristina Santamaría

      Version of Record online: 14 JAN 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801072

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Complexes 1 and 2 react with alcohols via a hydron transfer to the μ3-alkylidynemoiety to give the alkylidene derivatives [{Ti(η5-C5Me5)(μ-O)}3(μ-CHR)(OR′)], which contain the alkoxide ligand and thealkylidene fragment in a cis or trans disposition with respect to the Ti3O3 ring. Bulky alcohols are able to replace a pentamethylcyclopentadienyl ligand from the starting compounds.

      Novel flowery nanostructures of face-centered-cubic nickel assembled from hexagonal platelets were fabricated through the one-step reduction of nickel chloride with hydrazine in ammonia solution; no surfactant or external magnetic field was used.

    10. Mono-Pyrazolyl Ru Complexes

      Pyrazole and Pyrazolyl Complexes of cis-Bis(2,2′-bipyridine)chlororuthenium(II): Synthesis, Structural and Electronic Characterization, and Acid-Base Chemistry (pages 683–690)

      Hershel Jude, Francisca N. Rein, Weizhong Chen, Brian L. Scott, Dana M. Dattelbaum and Reginaldo C. Rocha

      Version of Record online: 14 JAN 2009 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200801086

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A series of mono-pyrazolyl complexes of {Ru(bpy)2Cl} was prepared and structurally and electronically characterized. The ligands behave as weak π-acceptors in the protonated (azole) form, but are strong π-donors in the deprotonated (azolate) state. The unusually high basicity of the pyrazole/pyrazolate couple in these complexes is partly attributed to an intramolecularN–H···Cl hydrogen bond.
