      Radical Coordination Chemistry and Its Relevance to Metal-Mediated Radical Polymerization (pages 1513–1530)

      Rinaldo Poli

      Article first published online: 4 MAR 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201001364

      Radicals react with transition-metal complexes in many different ways. The type of reaction, when reversible, is relevant to the outcome of metal-mediated radical polymerizations. This article analyses all these reactivity patterns and their relevance to radical polymerization processes, attempting to identify trends and principles of general use.

      Strongly Phosphorescent Iridium(III)–Porphyrins – New Oxygen Indicators with Tuneable Photophysical Properties and Functionalities (pages 1531–1534)

      Klaus Koren, Sergey M. Borisov, Robert Saf and Ingo Klimant

      Article first published online: 23 FEB 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100089

      New IrIII–porphyrin complexes were synthesized and characterized. They possess high phosphorescence quantum yields (up to 30 %). Axial ligands influence their solubility and photophysical properties. Furthermore, functional groups were introduced and used for covalent coupling. Application of these dyes for designing advanced optical oxygen sensing materials is demonstrated.

      Coordination-induced chirality was achieved in a unique tetrahedral [Dy44-O)(μ-OMe)2(beh)2(esh)4]·3MeOH complex through a twisted diazine bridge from a Schiff base ligand. Magnetic measurementsreveal weak intramolecular antiferromagnetic interactions (J = –0.3 cm–1) with single-molecule magnet behaviour (Ueff = 23.42 K).

    3. Phosphinines

      Investigating the Phospholylcarbene to Phosphinine Conversion (pages 1540–1543)

      Upon heating, 1-diazoalkylphosphole sulfides are converted into phosphinine sulfides whose in situ reduction by triphenylphosphite affords the dicoordinatephosphinines. The corresponding trivalent phospholes easily decompose but do not give phosphinines.

      Article first published online: 23 FEB 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201000862

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Irradiation of [Ru3(CO)12] in THF in the presence of thioether ligands yields ruthenium–carbonyl compounds [Ru4(CO)132-R2S)] in the case of monodentate ligands, but [Ru3(CO)10(RS∩SR)] and [Ru3(CO)8(RS∩SR)2] if bidentate thioether ligands are used. The latter may be oxidatively cleaved by CHCl3 to produce the dinuclear complex [Ru2(CO)22-Cl)2Cl2(RS∩SR)2].

      Article first published online: 15 FEB 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201001071

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Cone-like In2O3 nanowire (NW) arrays were synthesized on the surface of indium grains by using a simple chemical vapor deposition method and a possible mechanism was proposed for their formation. The indium grains served both as the indium source and the substrate for the growth of the cone-like In2O3 NW arrays. Their emission properties in a wide visible/infrared range indicate their potential applications in optoelectronics and phototherapy.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      CeO2:Sm3+ nanorods and nanocubes were selectively synthesized by hydrothermal treatments of aqueous solutions. The nanocubes exhibited much better photoluminescent properties than the nanorods, which can be explained by shape-induced structural defects.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Complexes of 3d metals with substituted2-pyridylmethylamide ligands show rich protonation/deprotonation and redox chemistry. Diphenylphosphanyl substituents add also ligand degradation reactions leading to the formation of phosphonium moieties in [(ClFe)2{Ph2P(N-CH2-2-Py)2}{μ-N(SiMe3)2}]; Fe (red), Cl (green), N (blue), P (light blue), (grey) C.

      Article first published online: 18 FEB 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201001260

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A DFT/TDDFT study has been carried out to examine the pH-dependent photophysical properties of [Ru(tpy-py)2]2+. The pH dependence is due to the presence of the basic nitrogen atom on the terminalpyridyl groups. A good agreement between theory and experiment was found, reproducing the redshift of the absorption spectrum and rationalizing the emission upon increasing pH.

      Unavoidable compromises between the electronic demands of the {Rh(PiBu3)2}+ fragment and the aromatic ligand lead to low barriers to haptotropic shifts in complexes of pyrene and coronene.
