    1. Iron Oxide Nanocatalysts

      The Effect of Surface Area and Crystal Structure on the Catalytic Efficiency of Iron(III) Oxide Nanoparticles in Hydrogen Peroxide Decomposition (pages 2343–2351)

      Cenek Gregor, Martin Hermanek, Dalibor Jancik, Jiri Pechousek, Jan Filip, Jan Hrbac and Radek Zboril

      Version of Record online: 3 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200901066

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Iron(III) oxide catalysts with varying surface areas and polymorphous compositions were tested in hydrogen peroxide decomposition. The high crystallinity of the particles and the large surface area of the samples result in extraordinary catalytic efficiency, whereas the effect of crystal structure on catalytic performance seems to be negligible.

    2. Catalyst Deactivation

      Catalyst Deactivation by β-Hydride Elimination: Olefin and Alkyne Insertion into Arenido–Nickel(II) Bonds (pages 2352–2360)

      Monika M. Lindner, Udo Beckmann, Eva Eichberger, Guido J. Reiß and Wolfgang Kläui

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200901179

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Olefins and alkynes insert into the Ni–C bond of arenido-NiII complexes bearing N,O-chelate ligands. Subsequent β-hydride elimination forms isomeric olefins and allenes. The Ni complexes are also catalystsfor the copolymerisation of ethene andcarbon monoxide. The reaction with olefins and alkynes is investigated and discussed as a possible catalyst deactivation pathway.

    3. Mono- and Diplatinum Complexes

      Mono- or Diplatinum Complexes Containing a π-Conjugated Pentadiynyl Ligand (pages 2361–2368)

      Ken Tsutsumi, Hayato Sakai, Kazuyuki Sakonaka, Tomomi Yabukami, Yoshiteru Takahashi, Yuzo Nakagai, Tsumoru Morimoto, Kenji Tabata and Kiyomi Kakiuchi

      Version of Record online: 30 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200901191

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Various mono- or diplatinum complexes (PPh3)nPtmX(CH2CCCCPh) were provided in the reactions of pentadiynyl halides XCH2C≡CC≡CPh with Pt0 and PPh3. The stability of these coordination modes was elucidated under various reaction conditions. Reaction of metallacyclobutene diplatinum complex with HCl gave the η3-,η1-allyl diplatinum complex.

    4. C–H Bond Activation

      C–H Activation with Iridium(III) and Rhodium(III) Alkyl Complexes Containing a 2,2′-Bipyridyl Ligand (pages 2369–2375)

      Xiao-Yi Yi, Ka-Wang Chan, Enrique Kwang Huang, Yiu-Keung Sau, Ian D. Williams and Wa-Hung Leung

      Version of Record online: 3 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000041

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The intramolecular C–H activation of[Rh(dtbpy)(κ2-C,C′-CH2CMe2C6H4)(CH2CMe2Ph)] to give a 2-tert-butylphenyl complex is described. The cyclometalation of 2-phenylpyridine and decarbonylation of 4-(2-pyridyl)benzaldehyde with [Ir(dtbpy)(κ2-C,C′-CH2CMe2C6H4)(C6H4tBu-2)] is also described. The synthesis and characterization of cationic Ir and Rh dtbpy alkyl complexes and their catalytic activity in H/D exchange of thf will be reported.

    5. Copper Polynuclear Complexes

      Ferromagnetic Tetranuclear and Pentanuclear Copper(II) Complexes Constructed from Cu2 Blocks (pages 2376–2384)

      Matilde Fondo, Noelia Ocampo, Ana M. García-Deibe and Jesús Sanmartín

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000057

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Cu5 and Cu4 ferromagnetic clusters have been constructed from Cu2 nodes and different dicarboxylate spacers.

    6. H···H-Defined Rotamers

      The Role of C–H···H–B Interactions in Establishing Rotamer Configurations in Metallabis(dicarbollide) Systems (pages 2385–2392)

      Emilio José Juárez-Pérez, Rosario Núñez, Clara Viñas, Reijo Sillanpää and Francesc Teixidor

      Version of Record online: 28 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000157

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The rotamer controversy between the solid state cisoid and the gas phase calculated transoid in [3,3′-Co-(1,2-C2B9H11)2] has led to conclude that the anionic environment is crucial to determine the rotamer conformation and crystal packing in metallacarboranes. QTAIM has been applied to study intermolecular H···H short contacts that define the preferred rotamer. Its relation to the electron configuration of the transition metal is also studied.

    7. Dithiolene Complexes

      Hydrogen Bonding in 2,3-Dithiolatoterephthaldiamide Complexes of Cobalt(III), Nickel(II), and Iron(III) (pages 2393–2399)

      F. Ekkehardt Hahn, Thomas Eiting, Wolfram W. Seidel and Tania Pape

      Version of Record online: 23 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000169

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Amide substituents at benzene-o-dithiolato ligands significantly influence the structural and electronic characteristics of their bis(dithiolato)CoIII, -NiII, and -FeIII complexes. In addition, the particular type of amide allows a fine-tuning of electronic properties by formation of intramolecular N–H···S hydrogen bonds.

    8. Carceplex or Host–Guest Systems?

      Permanent Encapsulation or Host–Guest Behavior of Aromatic Molecules in Hexanuclear Arene Ruthenium Prisms (pages 2400–2405)

      Julien Freudenreich, Nicolas P. E. Barry, Georg Süss-Fink and Bruno Therrien

      Version of Record online: 23 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000191

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Two cationic arene ruthenium metallaprisms possessing different portal sizes are presented. In solution, they are both able to allow small aromatic molecules to enter and leave their hydrophobic cavity (host–guest behavior). However, for larger aromatic molecules permanent encapsulation (carceplex formation) is observed during the assembly of the cages in the presence of the guest molecule.

    9. Alkyne-Iron Complexes

      Unsymmetrically Substituted Butenynyl-Iron(II) Complexes (pages 2406–2414)

      Leslie D. Field, Alison M. Magill, Stuart R. Pike, Anthony J. Turnbull, Scott J. Dalgarno, Peter Turner and Anthony C. Willis

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000281

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Butenynyl-iron(II) complexes have been prepared. Protonation of symmetrically substituted bis(acetylido) complexes resulted in the formation of a single butenyne product, however, two regioisomeric products are obtained if the starting material is unsymmetrically substituted. Several of these complexes were crystallographically characterised.

    10. Molybdenum Scorpionate Complexes

      Molybdenum Complexes Bearing the Tris(1-pyrazolyl)methanesulfonate Ligand: Synthesis, Characterization and Electrochemical Behaviour (pages 2415–2424)

      Chiara Dinoi, M. Fátima C. Guedes da Silva, Elisabete C. B. A. Alegria, Piotr Smoleński, Luísa M. D. R. S. Martins, Rinaldo Poli and Armando J. L. Pombeiro

      Version of Record online: 3 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000018

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Both low- and high-oxidation-state water-soluble Mo complexes bearing the tris(1-pyrazolyl)methanesulfonate (Tpms) ligand were prepared. High-valent dinuclear Tpms–oxo–Mo species were obtained by oxidation with air of [Mo(Tpms)(CO)3] or of derived seven-coordinate halogenated and hydride species.

    11. Symmetrical Ni Complexes

      1,3,5-Triazapentadiene Nickel(II) Complexes Derived from a Ketoxime-Mediated Single-Pot Transformation of Nitriles (pages 2425–2432)

      Maximilian N. Kopylovich, Alexander M. Kirillov, Ekaterina A. Tronova, Matti Haukka, Vadim Yu. Kukushkin and Armando J. L. Pombeiro

      Version of Record online: 3 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000019

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A facile single-pot Ni-ketoxime-mediated transformation of nitriles leads to a series of symmetrical cationic and neutral bis(1,3,5-triazapentadiene/ato)nickel(II) complexes with aliphatic, heterocyclic and aromatic substituents.
