      Article first published online: 25 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100462

      High-nuclearity molecular metal carbonyl clusters (MCCs) are perfectly (atomically)monodisperse, ligand-stabilised metal nanoparticles with nanometric dimensions and perfectly defined structures and physical properties. Moreover, they may be used as building blocks to assemble functionalised molecular nanomaterials or as precursors of metal nanostructures.

      Decorating the Second Coordination Sphere in Pyrazolate-Based Dinickel(II) Complexes with H-Bond Donors (pages 4161–4167)

      Tine Graef, Joanna Galezowska, Sebastian Dechert and Franc Meyer

      Article first published online: 2 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100514

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      New pyrazolate-derived compartmental ligands have been developed that feature peripheral amido groups as potential H-bonding sites. In a dinickel(II) complex these second sphere amido groups support an intramolecular HO···H–OH bridge within the bimetallic cavity through a network of hydrogen bonds.

    2. Cu-Crosslinked Artificial Tripeptides

      Anion Effects in Cu-Crosslinked Palindromic Artificial Tripeptides with Pendant Bpy Ligands (pages 4168–4174)

      Joy A. Gallagher, Lauren A. Levine and Mary Elizabeth Williams

      Article first published online: 2 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100567

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Metal-coordination-based self-assembly of artificial peptide duplexes is used to make multimetallic assemblies from a bipyridine-substituted tripeptide by simultaneousaddition of ligand-substituted aminoethylglycine monomers to both ends of a bpy-substituted diamine. The UV/Vis absorbance and EPR spectra reveal that the trimetallic CuII structures have anion-dependent geometries and interactions between metal ions.

    3. Water-Soluble Catalysts

      Water-Soluble Cobalt(II) and Copper(II) Complexes of 3-(5-Chloro-2-hydroxy-3-sulfophenylhydrazo)pentane-2,4-dione as Building Blocks for 3D Supramolecular Networks and Catalysts for TEMPO-Mediated Aerobic Oxidation of Benzylic Alcohols (pages 4175–4181)

      Maximilian N. Kopylovich, Kamran T. Mahmudov, Matti Haukka, Paweł J. Figiel, Archana Mizar, José A. L. da Silva and Armando J. L. Pombeiro

      Article first published online: 2 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100396

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      One way to improve the conductivity of carbon nanotube films is by introducing dopants. There are many dopants available; however, most of them are either not strong enough or involve high-cost chemicals. Herein we introduce low-cost and ultra-strong dopants for carbon nanotube conductive films.

    5. Charge Separation

      Interfacial Electron Transfer Dynamics of Two Newly Synthesized Catecholate Bound RuII Polypyridyl-Based Sensitizers on TiO2 Nanoparticle Surface – A Femtosecond Pump Probe Spectroscopic Study (pages 4187–4197)

      Article first published online: 17 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100411

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Sensitization of nanocrystalline TiO2 with RuII–polypyridyl complexes with secondary electron-donating groups (tyrosine and phenol) has been performed. After electron injection, the secondary electron-donating groups transfer the electron to oxidized RuIII, and the BET reaction slows down due to poor overlap between the injected electron and the hole localized in the electron-donating group.

    6. Metal Dendrites

      Growth and Transformation Mechanism of Ternary CuAgSe Dendrites from Binary Ag2Se Dendrites (pages 4198–4203)

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The oxidation of a CuII complex with a tren-based tetradentate coordinating cryptand is investigated. Reaction of the complex with basic hydrogen peroxide results in a net oxygen atom transfer to the ligand. Variable-temperature stopped-flow kinetic studies and mass spectrometry indicate the presence of an intermediate in the oxygenation process, which is identified as aCuII-hydroperoxo species.

      Article first published online: 10 AUG 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201100433

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The scorpionate ligand p-BrC6H4Tp (Tp′) is a precursor for the azido-functionalized mixed Tp sandwich compound [TpmRu(p-N3C6H4Tp)] utilizing copper-catalyzed azidonation [Tpm: tris(pyrazolyl)methane; Tp: tris(pyrazolyl)borate]. Further, the suitability of [TpmRu(p-N3C6H4Tp)] in Cu-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition (Cu-AAC) is outlined by coupling to alkynyl-functionalized biomolecules.

      A series of homo-/heterometallic mono-/multinuclear complexes of N,N′-bis[2-(diphenylphosphanyl)phenyl]formamidinewas prepared and characterized. The effect of metal radii on the resulting complex geometry was investigated, comparing homo- versus heterometallic dinuclear complexes. A butterfly structure around the central metal core was found in the mixed-metal trinuclear PdCuPd complex.

      The nickel(II) coordination polymers [Ni(suc)(bipy)(H2O)2]n·2nH2O (1) and [Ni(suc)(bipy)(H2O)2]n·nH2O (2) are reported. The nickel–succinate helices are right-handed sixfold in 1 and both right- and left-handed fourfold in 2. The guest water molecules are in intra- and interhelical channels in 1 and 2, respectively. Hexagonally packed 4,4′-bipyridine-bridged homochiral sixfold helices produce a chiral 75.9 network in 1, whereas 4,4′-bipyridine-bridged racemic fourfold helices generate an achiral 65.8 network in 2.

      Neutral and cationic titanium and zirconium complexes supported by chiraltripodal diamine bis(phenolate) ligands are described. Monocationic species with noncoordinated anions and η2-benzyl binding were obtained upon B(C6F5)3 treatment of the dibenzyl complexes. The catalytic properties of the compounds as olefin polymerization catalysts were assessed.
