    1. Calixarene Chelator

      Unusually Large Bite Angle of a Distally Diphosphanylated Calix[4]arene Chelator (pages 4917–4923)

      Soheila Sameni, Catherine Jeunesse, Mouhamad Awada, Dominique Matt and Richard Welter

      Article first published online: 23 SEP 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000595

      An upper-rim, distally diphosphanylated calix[4]arene readily forms a complex with AgBF4. In the solid state the ligand displays an unexpectedly large bite angle of 138.8°, which reflects the flexibility of the calixarene skeleton. In solution the silver atom moves rapidly between two positions lying on either side of the calixarene axis.

    2. Conductor Dirhodium Polymers

      MMX Chains and Molecular Species Containing Rh2n+ (n = 4, 5, and 6) Units: Electrical Conductivity in Crystal Phase of MMX Polymers (pages 4924–4932)

      Article first published online: 15 SEP 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000328

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The catalytic H/D exchange in primary alcohol substrates, promoted by a macrocyclic rhodium(III) complex, occurs by a reversible redox reaction that gives aldehyde and a rhodium–hydride complex. Hydride exchange in the latter complex promotes the introduction of solvent hydrogen in the primary alcohol formed by the reverse reaction.

      Isostructural Ln–BTCs (Ln: Ce, Tb, and Y) with a small size and high porosity are synthesized under ultrasound within minutes under ambient conditions. The synthesis rates of the Ln–BTCs are rCe–BTC >rTb–BTC > rY–BTC, which shows the importance of lability/inertness of the metal ions in the synthesis kinetics.

      Highly active and single-site Ir–NHC-containing materials have been synthesized and characterized. Their catalytic performances in C–H bond activation of several substrates have been studied, and it has been shown that the local confinementaround the metal centre (size of the NHC ligand, proximity to the surface and size of the passivating groups), and not the pore size, has a major effect.
