      Cyanide-bridged molecular square complexes are the building blocks of Prussian blue and can be controllably synthesized to be homo- or heterometallic. They have shown remarkable electrochemistry, spin-state control, spin-crossover behavior, and electron-transfer-coupled spin transitions. The recent developments in the field are discussed in this microreview.

    3. Metastable Coordination Networks

      Transformation of a CuII Thiazolo-1,2,4-triazine Derivative from a Metastable Coordination Network to a Monomer in Solution and Vapor Conditions (pages 3059–3066)

      Akiko Hori, Takahiro Kikuchi, Kumiko Miyamoto, Takashi Okano, Chihiro Kachi-Terajima and Hiroshi Sakaguchi

      Article first published online: 9 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100119

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      An orange–yellow coordination network and a blue mononuclear complex were obtained from the reaction of CuCl2·2H2O and thiazolo-1,2,4-triazine derivatives, which have multiple donor atoms (N, O, and S). Although the network polymer was rapidly transformed into the mononuclear complex in the solid state and solution, these structures were characterized by X-ray diffraction and magnetic studies.

    4. Carbene Catalysts

      Copper(I) Complexes of Normal and Abnormal Carbenes and Their Use as Catalysts for the Huisgen [3+2] Cycloaddition between Azides and Alkynes (pages 3067–3075)

      Stephan Hohloch, Cheng-Yong Su and Biprajit Sarkar

      Article first published online: 1 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100363

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      CuI complexes of normal and abnormal carbene ligands derived from their respective benzimidazolium and 1,2,3-triazolium salts are shown to be highly efficient catalysts for Huisgen [3+2] cycloadditions between azides and alkynes. A copper loading of as low as 0.05 mol-% was achieved. Internal alkynes and “super” bulky azides could also be converted to 1,2,3-triazoles by a click reaction.

    5. Superacidic Systems

      The Protonation of CF3SO3H: Preparation and Characterization of Trifluoromethyldihydroxyoxosulfonium Hexafluoridoantimonate, CF3SO3H2+SbF6 (pages 3076–3081)

      Theresa Soltner, Nadine R. Goetz and Andreas Kornath

      Article first published online: 6 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201001339

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Trifluoromethanesulfonic anhydride reacts with superacidic solutions HF/SbF5 to form its corresponding salt CF3SO3H2+SbF6, which is the protonated form of trifluoromethanesulfonic acid. The salt has been characterized by vibrational spectroscopy and single-crystal structural analysis. The experimental data were also compared to quantum chemical calculations for the CF3SO3H2(HF)2+ cation.

    6. Molecular Assemblies

      Molecular Assemblies Based on Polytungstate Clusters and the Flexible Organic Ligand 1,3-Bis(4-pyridyl)propane (pages 3082–3090)

      Zhangang Han, Yanna Wang, Xuejun Song, Xueliang Zhai and Changwen Hu

      Article first published online: 1 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100051

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four supramolecular assemblies have been prepared by the combination of different polyoxometalate anions and the flexibleorganic ligand 1,3-bis(4-pyridyl)propane (bpp). The structure-directing effect of anions play a significant role in the fabrication of these inorganic-organic arrangements.

      N-Aryl- and N-Thienylcarbazoles with Dimesitylboryl and 1,3,2-Benzodiazaborolyl Functions (pages 3091–3101)

      Lothar Weber, Johannes Halama, Lena Böhling, Anna Chrostowska, Alain Dargelos, Hans-Georg Stammler and Beate Neumann

      Article first published online: 6 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100123

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The study of N-(dimesitylboryl)carbazole 1 and N-phenyl- and N-thienylcarbazoles with dimesitylboryl groups 2 and 3 or 1,3,2-benzodiazaborolyl units 46 shows that the benzodiazaborolyl group does not contribute to the frontier orbitals in 46. The LUMOs of 13 are mainly represented by the 2pz orbitals of the Mes2B unit, whereas the HOMO is located on the carbazole part of the molecules.

      The paper presents the synthesis and structural characterization of two early–late heterometallic titanium copper thiolato complexes along with the characterization of their optical and thermal properties.

    9. Bimetallic Complexes

      Synthesis of Homo- and Hetero-Bimetallic Arsenic Complexes by Means of Regioselective Monoinsertion of Alkynylarsane into the Pd–C Bond of a Palladacycle (pages 3111–3121)

      Shuli Chen, Sumod A. Pullarkat, Yongxin Li and Pak-Hing Leung

      Article first published online: 1 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100208

      A variety of new chiral homo- or hetero-bimetallic arsenic functionalized complexes were synthesized by means of the regioselective monoinsertion of alkynylarsane into the Pd–C bonds of α-methyl N,N-dimethyl benzylamine palladacycles, which was promoted by the cyclometallated template.

    10. C–F Bond Activation

      Consecutive C–F Bond Activation of Hexafluorobenzene and Decafluorobiphenyl (pages 3122–3126)

      Thomas Schaub, Peter Fischer, Thomas Meins and Udo Radius

      Article first published online: 6 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100323

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A rare example of consecutive C–F bond activation of hexafluorobenzene and decafluorobiphenyl is reported. The reactions of [Ni2(iPr2Im)4(COD)] (1) with these substrates afford at elevated temperatures the complexes [1,4-{Ni(iPr2Im)2(F)}2(C6F4)] (3) and [4,4′-{Ni(iPr2Im)2(F)}2(C12F8)] (5).These compounds react cleanly with chlorotrimethylsilane and (isopropyl)(trimethylsilyl)selenane.

    11. Carbonylchromium Complexes

      Binuclear Carbonylheptalenechromium Complexes: Partition of Heptalene into a Complexed Heptafulvene Subunit and an Uncomplexed 1,3-Diene Subunit for Coordination to a Multiply Bonded Pair of Chromium Atoms (pages 3127–3137)

      Huidong Li, Hao Feng, Weiguo Sun, Qunchao Fan, Yaoming Xie and R. Bruce King

      Article first published online: 15 JUN 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201001329

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The lowest energy C12H10Cr2(CO)6 structures have each heptalene ring bonded to an independent Cr(CO)3 unit with Cr···Cr distances too long for direct bonding. The lowest energy C12H10Cr2(CO)5 structure has a Cr≡Cr triple bond and an eight-carbon heptafulvene subunit coordinated to the carbonyl-bridged Cr2(CO)4(μ-CO) unit leaving an uncomplexed cis-1,3-diene subunit in the heptalene ligand. The global minima for C12H10Cr2(CO)n (n = 4, 3) complexes are predicted to have single four-electron donor bridging η2-μ-CO groups as well as Cr–Cr bonds.
