      A new approach to an “old” ligand: Aferrocene analogue of the ubiquitous salen ligands was generated based on a planar chiral hydroxyferrocene unit. This new scaffold was used for the generation of the corresponding chiral Ti and Al complexes, which could successfully be applied as catalysts in the asymmetric trimethylsilylcyanation of benzaldehyde.

      A series of cationic tetranuclear arene ruthenium complexes connected with pyrazine, 4,4′-bipyridine or 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene NN linkers interact differently with pyrene in solution. While pyrene doesnot interact with the pyrazine-containing metalla-rectangle, it interacts with the 4,4′-bipyridine-containing metalla-rectangle and goes into the cavity of the 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene system.

      Phthalocyanine analogues with two phenol or resorcinol groups incorporated into the macrocycle backbone can be readily generated by means of simple Schiff base condensation reactions in the presence of base. These macrocycles adopt planar conformations and can bind AgI to afford low-coordinate complexes.
