      The use of metallodendrimers is fast becoming an attractive strategy in the design of a new class of metal-based biomolecules. This review surveys illustrative examples of these multivalent biologically active molecules as metal-based drugs and as agents for biosensing, photothermal and photodynamic therapy.

      The reaction of AgSbF6 with the gold chloride complex of the extremely bulky N-heterocyclic carbene ligand IPr** (simplified in the figure) revealed a silver cation coordinated to a single AuCl fragment – an intermediate proposed for most gold-catalyzed organic transformations.

      A new bombesin copper complex based on a bifunctional cyclam derivative was synthesized, characterized, and evaluated for its binding affinity to bombesin receptors through in vitro cell assays with PC-3 cells.

    3. Electrochemical Synthesis

      Electrochemical Synthesis and Characterization of Semiconducting Ni(TCNQF4)2(H2O)2 (TCNQF4 = 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) (pages 2889–2897)

      Thanh Hai Le, Ayman Nafady, Jinzhen Lu, Germanas Peleckis, Alan M. Bond and Lisandra L. Martin

      Version of Record online: 20 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201101420

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Ni(TCNQF4)2(H2O)2 was formed by a solid–solid phase transformation with a TCNQF4-modified glassy carbon electrode in aqueous Ni(NO3)2. The transformation is electrochemically irreversible but chemically reversible and is governed by nucleation and growth kinetics. The product is a classical paramagnet and a typical semiconductor with a band gap close to that of an insulator.

      Targeting Carbonic Anhydrases with Fluorescent BODIPY-Labelled Sulfonamides (pages 2898–2907)

      Philip A. Waghorn, Michael W. Jones, Alan McIntyre, Alessio Innocenti, Daniela Vullo, Adrian L. Harris, Claudiu T. Supuran and Jonathan R. Dilworth

      Version of Record online: 23 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201101371

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      4,4-Difluoro-4-borata-3a-azonia-4a-aza-s-indacene (BODIPY)-functionalised sulfonamides have been tested for their carbonic anhydrase (CA) selectivity by binding-affinity assays against CA IX and CA XII. In vitro studies in a CA IX transfected cell line have highlighted the importance of both the nature of the fluorophore and the presence of a secondary binding interaction for selective CA inhibition.

    5. 1,3,2-Diselenaphospholanes

      2-Halogeno-1,3,2-diselenaphospholanes with an Annelated Dicarba-closo-dodecaborane(12) Unit: Synthesis, Molecular Structure and Reactivity (pages 2908–2915)

      Bernd Wrackmeyer, Elena V. Klimkina and Wolfgang Milius

      Version of Record online: 4 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200163

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Cleavage of Si–Se bonds with PCl3, PBr3 or PI3 affords the corresponding 1,3,2-diselenaphospholanes in high yield, and the bromide and iodide could be converted into the parent phosphane. 1H, 13C, 31P and 77Se NMR spectroscopy in solution, an X-ray structural analysis of the iodide and calculations of NMR parameters by using DFT hybrid methods [RB3LYP/6-311+G(d.p) level] complete the characterisation.

    6. Dinuclear Nickel(II) Complexes

      One Ferromagnetic and Two Antiferromagnetic Dinuclear Nickel(II) Complexes Derived from a Tridentate N,N,O-Donor Schiff Base Ligand: A Density Functional Study of Magnetic Coupling (pages 2916–2927)

      Rituparna Biswas, Sanjib Giri, Shyamal K. Saha and Ashutosh Ghosh

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200028

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Of the three dinuclear NiII complexes synthesized, the two double-phenoxido-bridged complexes are antiferromagnetically coupled, whereas the third with an additional water bridge is ferromagnetic. A theoretical study has been performed to show the influence of the Ni–O–Ni bond angle on the exchange coupling constants.

    7. Betaine Reactivity

      Reactions of CS2 and C(S)NPh Adducts of N-Heterocyclic Carbenes with [Ru3(CO)12]: Remarkable Reactivity of These Betaines Involving One or Two C–S Bond Activation Processes (pages 2928–2932)

      Version of Record online: 17 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200245

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The products of the reactions of NHC–C(S)X betaines (NHC = N-heterocyclic carbene; X = S, NPh) with [Ru3(CO)12] contain μ4-sulfido ligands that arise from the cleavage of the betaine thiocarbonyl C–S bond. The additional activation of a ring C–S bond has been observed for a thiazole-derived betaine.

      Sulfur Oxygenation of [Ni(btdt)2]2– by Aerial Oxidation under Ambient Conditions – Syntheses, Crystal Structures, and Properties of [Bu4N]2[Ni(btdt)2] and [Bu4N]2­[Ni(btdtO2)2]·H2O ({btdt}2– = 2,1,3-Benzenethiadiazole-5,6-dithiolate) (pages 2933–2939)

      Ramababu Bolligarla and Samar K. Das

      Version of Record online: 17 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201101426

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A nickel–dithiolene complex was synthesized. Its oxygenation, which occurs under ambient conditions, results in the isolation of a trans-disulfinate compound. The crystal structures, electronic, and electrochemical properties of the compounds were investigated.

    9. Dioxidomolybdenum Complexes

      Olefin Epoxidation Catalyzed by cis-Dioxdomolybdenum(VI) Complexes Containing Chiral Alkoxo-Imino Ligands Derived from (+)-α-Pinene (pages 2940–2949)

      Version of Record online: 20 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200144

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Pure chiral cis-dioxidomolybdenum complexes containing alkoxo-imino ligands derived from (+)-α-pinene have been prepared, and their catalytic activity in olefin epoxidation has been evaluated. All new complexes displayed high activity and chemoselectivity with TBHP (tert-butyl hydroperoxide) and H2O2 as oxidants.

      Version of Record online: 13 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200098

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Water-soluble “clicked” assemblies containing two or three cyclodextrin-encapsulated ferrocenyl termini and 1,2,3-triazolyl internal ligands for PdII are precursors of stabilized Pd0 nanoparticle precatalysts for efficient Miyaura–Suzuki and Heck reactions of iodobenzene in water/ethanol under mild conditions.
