      Within the CrX63– series, it is shown that π effects decrease down the series and that the decrease in the ligand field parameter, Δ, is due to the lengthening of the bond.

    2. Cancer Therapy

      A Photo-Caged Platinum(II) Complex That Increases Cytotoxicity upon Light Activation (pages 2224–2228)

      Katie L. Ciesienski, Lynne M. Hyman, Daniel T. Yang, Kathryn L. Haas, Marina G. Dickens, Robert J. Holbrook and Katherine J. Franz

      Article first published online: 16 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000098

      Photoinitiated drug release is an attractive strategy for increasing drug efficacy only at the irradiated site while minimizing toxicity to surrounding healthy tissue. Here we show that a neutral, nontoxic PtII complex that is inert to ligand exchange reactions can be converted by UV light to a charged complex with light-dependent cytotoxicity.

    3. Mixed-Valence Cobalt Clusters

      Anion-Dependent Facile Route to Magnetic Dinuclear and Dodecanuclear Cobalt Clusters (pages 2229–2234)

      Ling-Ling Zheng, Ji-Dong Leng, Radovan Herchel, Yan-Hua Lan, Annie K. Powell and Ming-Liang Tong

      Article first published online: 14 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000222

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A dodecanuclear CoIII3CoII9 and a dinuclear CoII2 cluster were synthesized facilely from reactions of different cobalt(II) salts with the ligand (1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)methanol. The cobalt ions in the unprecedented Co12 supercluster are linked into a disclike structure through μ3-OL, μ-OL, μ3-O2–, μ1,1-N3 and μ1,1,1-N3 bridges.

    1. Mesoporous Silicon (Oxy)Nitride

      Effect of Pore Structure on the Nitridation of Mesoporous Silica with Ammonia (pages 2235–2243)

      Fumitaka Hayashi, Ken-ichi Ishizu and Masakazu Iwamoto

      Article first published online: 20 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200901236

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Mesoporous silicon (oxy)nitrides withregular pore structures were prepared by nitridation of mesoporous silica MCM-41, SBA-15, and MCM-48 with ammonia. The nitrogen contents were 35–39 wt.-%. The reaction rates were dependent on the surface areas. Characterization revealed no collapse of the regular pore structure through the nitridation.

    2. Polynuclear Manganese Complexes

      New Mixed-Valence MnII/III6 Complexes Bearing Oximato and Azido Ligands: Synthesis, and Structural and Magnetic Characterization (pages 2244–2253)

      Christos Lampropoulos, Theocharis C. Stamatatos, Manolis J. Manos, Anastasios J. Tasiopoulos, Khalil A. Abboud and George Christou

      Article first published online: 9 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200901013

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Two new hexanuclear, mixed-valence,MnII/III cage-like clusters have been obtained from the amalgamation of azide and methyl 2-pyridyl ketone oxime ligands in Mn non-carboxylate chemistry. The complexes both possess small (S = 5/2) spin ground states that suggest the presence of spin frustration effects.

    3. Methane Activation

      Reversible Heterolytic Methane Activation of Metal-Free Closed-Shell Molecules: A Computational Proof-of-Principle Study (pages 2254–2260)

      Gang Lu, Lili Zhao, Haixia Li, Fang Huang and Zhi-Xiang Wang

      Article first published online: 14 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000242

      Whereas the transition-metal (TM) complex maintains an active site through symmetry-unmatched orbitals, the designed molecule uses linkages to prohibit electron donation from the N to the B center, thus preserving an effective active site for acid/base effects. Some of these molecules have kinetics and thermodynamics in activating methane comparable with or better than those of the TM complex.

    4. Ni Nanoflowers

      Flower-Like Nickel Nanocrystals: Facile Synthesis, Shape Evolution, and Their Magnetic Properties (pages 2261–2265)

      Pengwei Li, Ning Wang and Rongming Wang

      Article first published online: 9 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000070

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      3D hierarchical flower/star-like Ni nanostructures were formed. Once the reagents are mixed, the rod-like morphology of the intermediate products [Ni(N2H4)2]Cl2 are first synthesized. Depending on the experimental temperature, nickel nanostructures varying from a flower-like superstructure to nanostars can be achieved by the oriented growth of preferred nickel crystal planes.

    5. Cadmium Sulfide Nanoparticles

      Studies on the Formation of CdS Nanoparticles from Solutions of (NMe4)4[Cd10S4(SPh)16] (pages 2266–2275)

      Article first published online: 14 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000080

      The molecular cluster [Cd10S4(SPh)16]4– undergoes rearrangement reactions in coordinating solvents resulting in larger clusters and eventually formation of CdS nanoparticles. The mechanism of this transformation was investigated.

    6. Fused Silacarbacycles

      Fused Silacarbacycles Containing a Silole Unit: 1,2-Hydroboration and 1,1-Organoboration of Alkynyl(vinyl)silanes (pages 2276–2282)

      Bernd Wrackmeyer, Oleg L. Tok, Elena V. Klimkina and Wolfgang Milius

      Article first published online: 20 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000231

      Alkynyl(vinyl)silanes containing two alkynyl groups react with 9-borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane (9-BBN) by consecutive 1,2-hydroboration of the vinyl group and twofold intramolecular 1,1-organoboration to afford 1,6-disilapentalene derivatives, fused silacarbacycles with a silole unit.

    7. Task-Specific Ionic Liquids

      Synthesis and Characterization of Task-Specific Ionic Liquids Based on Peroxydisulfate and Their Application in Oxidation Reactions (pages 2283–2289)

      Shenyi Shi, Aiguo Kong, Xinhua Zhao, Qiying Zhang and Yongkui Shan

      Article first published online: 20 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200901134

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four task-specific ionic liquids based on peroxydisulfate anions were synthesized and characterized. These ionic liquids have the desired properties for given oxidation reactions of alcohols and thiols, and they show excellent performance as both oxidant and medium in solvent- and catalyst-free reaction systems.

    8. Luminescent Lanthanide Hybrids

      Photoactive Ternary Lanthanide-Centered Hybrids with Schiff-Base Functionalized Polysilsesquioxane Bridges and N-Heterocyclic Ligands (pages 2290–2296)

      Jin-Liang Liu, Bing Yan and Lei Guo

      Article first published online: 13 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000029

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      This work focuses on the synthesis of a series of silica-based organic–inorganic hybrid materials, containing different Schiff-base organic compounds, through a covalent self-assembly process. The resulting materials exhibit regular, uniform microstructures and the organic and inorganic compounds are covalently linked through Si–O bonds.

    9. Schiff Base Pyridazine Complexes

      Pyridazine-Based Ligands and Their Coordinating Ability towards First-Row Transition Metals (pages 2297–2305)

      Katrin R. Grünwald, Gerald Saischek, Manuel Volpe, Ferdinand Belaj and Nadia C. Mösch-Zanetti

      Article first published online: 16 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000120

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A new class of pyridazine-based ligands was prepared and their coordination of first-row transition metals was tested. Evidence from X-ray diffraction and electrodchemical analysis shows the formation of 1:1 and 1:2 complexes depending on the electronic influence exerted by the peripheral substituents on the particular ligand.
