      A new trimerization system for ethene consisting of CrCl3(thf)3, a novel aminophosphane ligand, and Et3Al was developed, showing very promising results in selectivity and applicability (see picture). Investigations on organometallic model compounds give an indication of the nature of the active catalyst species.

      Double-shelled Mn2O3 hollow spheres are successfully prepared through an inward oxidation/etching treatment and sequential heat treatment in air. As the double-shelled Mn2O3 hollow spheres were employed in water treatment, they exhibited excellent performance of removing phenol in wastewater, which offers a potential application in water treatment.

      Daria Mikhailova, Narendirakumar Narayanan, Andrea Voss, Helmut Ehrenberg, Dmytro M. Trots, Clemens Ritter, Jürgen Eckert and Hartmut Fuess

      Article first published online: 3 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200900922

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The temperature-induced structural phase transformations of Sr2ScReO6, which are based on the tiltings of MO6 octahedra (M = Sc, Re) and a shift in the Sr positions, were studied. The low-temperature phase transition from P21/n to I4/m is accompanied by antiferromagnetic ordering, which stabilizes the higher symmetry of the low-temperature phase as a result of the lower magnetic entropy.

    4. Intermetalloid Clusters

      Varying Bonding Modes of the Zintl Ion [Ge9]4– in CuI Complexes: Syntheses and Structures of [Cu(η4-Ge9)(PR3)]3– (R = iPr, Cy) and [Cu(η4-Ge9)(η1-Ge9)]7– (pages 1207–1213)

      Sandra Scharfe and Thomas F. Fässler

      Article first published online: 4 FEB 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.200901038

      The Cu-capped Ge9 clusters [Cu(η4-Ge9)R]3– (R = PCy3, PiPr3) and [Cu(η4-Ge9)(η1-Ge9)]7– show that homoatomic Zintl anions can act as multifunctional ligands. The clusters serve as a six-electron donor with η4 coordination and can also act as a two-electron σ donor. The stepwise exchange of ligands at the CuI atom shows how metal clusters can form larger intermetalloid clusters (Cu: red, Ge: blue, P: orange).

      Theoretical studies of β-P4S3, P4S3·W(CO)5, 1D-(P4S3)(CuI) and 3D-(P4S3)(CuI)3 (4), which may be considered as potential building blocks of the organometallic-inorganic hybrid coordination polymer {P4S3·W(CO)5}(CuI) (3), were carried out on the DFT level in the crystalline phase.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Ag/graphene heterosturctures were synthesized by thermal reduction of partially reduced graphene oxide heterosturctures. The surface plasmon band of Ag nanoparticlesin Ag/G is redshifted to 422 nm, which results from the change in the dielectric environment and the electron density of Ag nanoparticles induced by graphene sheets.

      A CaNb2O6 hierarchical micro/nanostructure was successfully fabricated under mild hydrothermal conditions without templates. There are nanosheets standing vertically on the surface of the microneedles in the hierarchical structure. This structural feature could lead to a good photocatalytic performance in the decomposition of RhB. A two-step nucleation–growth mechanism is proposed.

The possible growth mechanism of 1D SmB6 structures has been discussed.
