      In this Microreview, we describe the fundamental emission characteristics of luminescent rhenium(I) tricarbonyl polypyridine complexes and explain why they hold promise for use as luminescent sensors. Additionally, we summarize the recent design of these complexes as biomolecular and cellular probes.

    1. Luminescent Ln Materials

      Structural Characterization and Photoluminescent Properties of (La1–xSmx)2Ti2O7 Solid Solutions Synthesized by a Sol–Gel Route (pages 3569–3576)

      Zhenmian Shao, Sébastien Saitzek, Jean-François Blach, Adlane Sayede, Pascal Roussel and Rachel Desfeux

      Version of Record online: 15 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100309

      (La1–xSmx)2Ti2O7 compounds were prepared by a sol–gel technique. An XRD study shows the substitution of La3+ ions by Sm3+ ions to a level of x = 0.8 while preserving the layered-perovskite structure. The luminescent properties were also studied. For low substitution rates, the material exhibits an orange emission under UV excitation.

    2. Magnetic Resonance Imaging Agents

      A Modular Approach towards the Synthesis of Target-Specific MRI Contrast Agents (pages 3577–3585)

      Peter Verwilst, Svetlana V. Eliseeva, Sophie Carron, Luce Vander Elst, Carmen Burtea, Geert Dehaen, Sophie Laurent, Koen Binnemans, Robert N. Muller, Tatjana N. Parac-Vogt and Wim M. De Borggraeve

      Version of Record online: 15 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100575

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A modular pathway for the synthesis of new specific MRI contrast agents and their luminescent analogues is described. By using two azide-bearing probes, a “click” reaction with an alkyne-bearing 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7,10-tetraacetic acid (DOTA) analogue yielded a possible blood-pool contrast agent, as well as a contrast agent with a high affinity for cells expressing αvβ3 integrin.

    3. Tb(III)–Radical Magnetic Complexes

      From Discrete Molecule to One-Dimension Chain: Two New Nitronyl Nitroxide–Lanthanide Complexes Exhibiting Slow Magnetic Relaxation (pages 3586–3591)

      Xiaoling Wang, Xia Bao, Panpan Xu and Li Li

      Version of Record online: 18 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100296

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Two new TbIII–radical complexes with tri-spin mononuclear and one-dimensional chain structures, respectively, have been prepared. Magnetic studies show that the two complexes display slow magnetic relaxation that resembles single-molecule and single-chain magnet behavior, respectively.

    4. Rare Earth Complexes

      Trivalent Rare Earth Complexes of the Unsymmetrical 3-(2′-Thienyl)-5-(trifluoromethyl)pyrazolate Ligand (pages 3592–3600)

      Glen B. Deacon, Peter C. Junk and Aron Urbatsch

      Version of Record online: 19 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100487

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      New trivalent rare earth metal complexes, [RE(ttfpz)3(solv)n], of the unsymmetrical3-(2′-thienyl)-5-(trifluoromethyl)pyrazolate ligand (ttfpz) were prepared and structurally characterised. A size-based stereochemical change was observed for the [RE(ttfpz)3(thf)3] species.

    5. Inorganic Lanthanide Complexes

      Lanthanide Carbonates (pages 3601–3616)

      Rafał Janicki, Przemysław Starynowicz and Anna Mondry

      Version of Record online: 18 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100184

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The molecular structures of the rare earth carbonates revealed that the light lanthanides are 9-coordinate, whereas the heavy lanthanides are 8-coordinate. The nature of the Ln–O bonds was studied by experimental and theoretical (DFT) methods.

    6. Cyclopalladation

      Synthesis of Cyclopalladated Derivatives of (E)-N-Benzylidene-2-(2,6-dichlorophenyl)ethanamine and Their Reactivity towards Monodentate and Symmetric Bidentate Lewis Bases (pages 3617–3631)

      Joan Albert, Ramón Bosque, Lucía D'Andrea, Jaume Granell, Mercè Font-Bardia and Teresa Calvet

      Version of Record online: 20 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100293

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Dinuclear palladium compounds containing different types of symmetric bidentate Lewis bases acting as bridging ligands between two identical cyclopalladated units are reported. A theoretical study of the differences in energy between the stereoisomers of the compounds is also reported.

    7. Tin Alkoxide Complexes

      Syntheses, Structures and Reactivity of New Intramolecularly Coordinated Tin Alkoxides Based on an Enantiopure Ephedrine Derivative (pages 3632–3643)

      Ljuba Iovkova-Berends, Thorsten Berends, Christina Dietz, Gerrit Bradtmöller, Dieter Schollmeyer and Klaus Jurkschat

      Version of Record online: 21 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100352

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Bromide anions catalyze the rearrangement of the bromido-substituted tin ephedrine-based alkoxide derivative 5 to give the unprecedented tin tetrabromide coordinated spiro-type complex 6.

    8. Tin Oxide Nanoparticles

      Reactive and Organosoluble SnO2 Nanoparticles by a Surfactant-Free Non-Hydrolytic Sol–Gel Route (pages 3644–3649)

      Abdelhay Aboulaich, Bruno Boury and P. Hubert Mutin

      Version of Record online: 19 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100391

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Tin(IV) oxide nanoparticles (5–15 nm) have been synthesized in high yield in CH2Cl2 by a non-hydrolytic sol–gel process. Their high reactivity towards hydroxylated surfaces is self-limiting due to the specific functionality at the surface and allows the deposition of a monolayer of nanoparticles.

    9. Biomimetics

      Counterion and Solvent Effects on the Primary Coordination Sphere of Copper(II) Bis(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)acetic Acid Coordination Compounds (pages 3650–3655)

      Bojan Kozlevčar, Patrick Gamez, René de Gelder, Zvonko Jagličić, Peter Strauch, Nives Kitanovski and Jan Reedijk

      Version of Record online: 20 JUL 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100410

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A series of copper(II) coordination compounds with the neutral ligand bis(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)acetic acid and its anionic form have been synthesized. Interesting coordination modes are observed, which have been ascribed to hydrogen-bonding interactions involving the carboxylic group, especially in aqueous solutions containing different acids (H2SO4, HCl, CH3COOH).
