      Ellen M. Matson, Phillip E. Fanwick and Suzanne C. Bart

      Article first published online: 14 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201290106

      The cover picture shows an equilibrium between two uranium hydrazonido compounds. The closed species, Tp*2U(η2-N2CPh2), represented by the closed lotus flower, does not exhibit further reactivity, whereas the open congener, Tp*2U(η1-N2CPh2), represented by the bloomed lotus flower, is reactive for multiple bond metathesis. The cover picture was designed by Demian Crownfield. Details are presented in the article by S. Bart et al. on p. 5471 ff.

    1. Nanoparticle Membranes

      Topical Developments of Nanoporous Membrane Filters for Ultrafine Noble Metal Nanoparticles (pages 5439–5450)

      This report focuses on the development of silica nanotube (NT) membranes for the size-cut-off sieving of noble metal nanoparticles (NPs). The practical nanofilter design shows evidence of controlled homogeneous NPs in terms of size and shape. The potential applications of the ultrafine NPs, which include cancer diagnosis and treatment, are also discussed.

    1. Hydrophosphanylation

      Regiospecific Calcium-Mediated Intermolecular Hydrophosphanylation of Butadiynes with Diphenylphosphane Oxide (pages 5451–5455)

      Tareq M. A. Al-Shboul, Helmar Görls, Sven Krieck and Matthias Westerhausen

      Article first published online: 17 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201201138

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Regiocontrolled catalysis can be achieved through s-block metal-mediated hydrophosphanylation of butadiynes by using calcium as the catalyst in the presence of phosphane oxides. Thus, doubly phosphanylated products were isolated in high yields.

    2. T-Shaped Selenyl Dichlorides

      Perpendicular versus Coplanar Conformation of the SeCl2 Moiety in T-Shaped Selenyl Chloride Adducts – Propeller-Like Free Rotation in Solution (pages 5456–5460)

      Victor N. Khrustalev, Sheyda R. Ismaylova, Rinat R. Aysin, Zhanna V. Matsulevich, Vladimir K. Osmanov, Alexander S. Peregudov and Alexander V. Borisov

      Article first published online: 19 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201201021

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The structures of two T-shaped selenyl dichloride adducts were studied. The possibility of propeller-like free rotation of the SeCl2 moiety around the C–Se bond, indicating its single-bond character, was demonstrated. These T-shaped selenyl dichlorides are a source of difficult-to-obtain, unstable organoselenyl chlorides, which opens new opportunities for the study of low-valent chalcogens.

      Article first published online: 2 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200907

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A versatile and environmentally friendly method for the synthesis of zirconia nanoparticles has been developed by exploiting the ionotropic gelation technique by using a biopolymer and zirconium source (ZrCl4). We report here the successful synthesis of pure tetragonal zirconia nanoparticles by gelation of alginate at room temperature followed by calcination.

    2. Luminescent Frameworks

      Antenna- and Metal-Triggered Luminescence in Dense 1,3-Benzodinitrile Metal–Organic Frameworks 3[LnCl3(1,3-Ph(CN)2)], Ln = Eu, Tb (pages 5479–5484)

      Christoph J. Höller, Philipp R. Matthes, Matthias Adlung, Claudia Wickleder and Klaus Müller-Buschbaum

      Article first published online: 18 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200888

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Luminescent Eu3+ and Tb3+ metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) were prepared from anhydrous LnCl3 and 1,3-benzodinitrile. The ligand transforms the LnCl3 structure into 3[LnCl3(1,3-Ph(CN)2)] 3D frameworks that are the sole examples of luminescent dinitrile frameworks. Emission can be triggered by a linker antenna effect or by direct metal excitation and derives from Ln3+ 4f–4f transitions.

    3. Photosystem II Models

      Visible-Light-Driven Generation of High-Valent Oxo-Bridged Dinuclear and Tetranuclear Manganese Terpyridine Entities Linked to Photoactive Ruthenium Units of Relevance to Photosystem II (pages 5485–5499)

      Carmen E. Castillo, Sophie Romain, Marius Retegan, Jean-Claude Leprêtre, Jérôme Chauvin, Carole Duboc, Jérôme Fortage, Alain Deronzier and Marie-Noëlle Collomb

      Article first published online: 19 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200924

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A new photoactive manganese–ruthenium complex is reported. Visible light can drive the successive generation of oxo-briged dinuclear and tetranuclear Mn cores from a simple mononuclear MnII bis(terpyridine) central unit. The tetranuclear Mn4O5 centre reproduces the Mn/O stoichiometry of the Mn4CaO5 oxygen-evolving centre of photosystem II.

    7. μ-Oxodiiron Complexes

      Synthesis and Properties of Dinuclear μ-Oxodiiron(III) Complexes of Amide-Based Macrocyclic Ligands (pages 5525–5533)

      Sushil Kumar, Shefali Vaidya, Michael Pissas, Yiannis Sanakis and Rajeev Gupta

      Article first published online: 26 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200683

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      We report here the syntheses, structures, Mössbauer, magnetic, and redox characterization of a series of μ-oxido-bridged diiron(III) complexes supported with a set of amide-based macrocyclic ligands. The unsupported single μ-oxido group mediates a strong antiferromagnetic coupling between two FeIII ions.

    8. Electrochemically Directed Synthesis of Co2+ and Ni2+ Complexes with TCNQF42– (TCNQF4 = 2,3,5,6-Tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) (pages 5534–5541)

      Thanh Hai Le, Ayman Nafady, Alan M. Bond and Lisandra L. Martin

      Article first published online: 25 SEP 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200774

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      TCNQF4 is sequentially reduced to TCNQF4· and then TCNQF42– (left, black). However, in the presence of Co2+, the first reduction process is not influenced, whereas the reduction of TCNQF4· to TCNQF42– is accompanied by the crystallization of CoTCNQF4 on the electrode surface (left, red), which is due to its low solubility. The SEM image (right) reveals that CoTCNQF4 electrocrystallizes on the surface of an indium tin oxide electrode as needles.
