      The Templating Effect and Photochemistry of Viologens in Halometalate Hybrid Crystals (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 1/2013)

      Nicolas Mercier

      Article first published online: 2 JAN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201390000

      As the walls of the Angers' castle (France) connect the towers, the methylviologen dications stabilise the rare halobismuthate or haloantimonate anionic chains of trans-connected octahedra. The chains are polar as highlighted by the flags at the top of the towers, which leads to a new fascinating family of ferroelectrics. In the moats, in the shadow of the castle, the clumps of crystals of halometalate viologen salts are yellow, but become black as soon as the sun appears, as a consequence of a photoinduced electron-transfer process that occurs in the presence of viologen radicals. Details are discussed in the Microreview by N. Mercier on p. 19 ff.

    1. Hybrid Materials

      The Templating Effect and Photochemistry of Viologens in Halometalate Hybrid Crystals (pages 19–31)

      Nicolas Mercier

      Article first published online: 15 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201201125

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The chemistry of viologen (V2+)-based crystals is reviewed. As a result of face and side contacts, V2+ templates the rare MX52– (M = Bi, Sb; X = halide) chain of trans-connected octahedra, which leads to a fascinating family of ferroelectrics and a series of closely related chlorobismuthate networks; this allows relevant analysis of the structure–photochromic properties of these hybrid materials.

      Hybrid of Europium-Doped Layered Yttrium Hydroxide and Organic Sensitizer – Effect of Solvent on Structure and Luminescence Behavior (pages 32–38)

      Yahong Sun, Nankai Chu, Qingyang Gu, Guohua Pan, Genban Sun, Shulan Ma and Xiaojing Yang

      Article first published online: 13 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201201048

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The organic sensitizer terephthalic acid and its anion terephthalate (TA) were introduced into the galleries in europium-doped layered yttrium hydroxide (LYH:Eu). The use of different solvents led to the formation of various hybrid structures and brought about distinct Eu3+ luminescence behavior.

    2. Binary Pseudosupercapacitors

      Hydrothermal Synthesis of Binary Ni–Co Hydroxides and Carbonate Hydroxides as Pseudosupercapacitors (pages 39–43)

      Bishnu Prasad Bastakoti, Yuichiro Kamachi, Hou-Sheng Huang, Lin-Chi Chen, Kevin C.-W. Wu and Yusuke Yamauchi

      Article first published online: 29 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200939

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A one-step method assisted by an amphiphilic block copolymer was used to prepare a series of binary Ni–Co (carbonate) hydroxides with various shapes and compositions. The morphologies, crystal phases, and surface areas of the binary materials could be controlled by changing the Ni/Co ratio; the effects of these factors on the electrochemical performances of the binary supercapacitors were studied.

      Tripodal MIII coordination compounds functionalized with three methylsulfanyl end-groups were synthesized and fully characterized by 1H, 13C NMR, UV/Vis, IR spectroscopy, magnetic measurements, and by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. UHV-STM measurements of a submonolayer of GaL complex deposited on Au(111) show isolated molecules with the tripodal shape maintained on the surface.

    5. Thiosemicarbazone Ligands

      A Fluorescent Dissymmetric Thiosemicarbazone Ligand Containing a Hydrazonequinoline Arm and Its Complexes with Cadmium and Mercury (pages 80–90)

      David G. Calatayud, Elena López-Torres and M. Antonia Mendiola

      Article first published online: 7 NOV 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201200815

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A new dissymmetric thiosemicarbazone ligand with a hydrazonequinoline arm and its chloride salt were synthesized. The reactivity of both ligands with cadmium and mercury nitrate was explored. Both showed fluorescence emission, although the neutral ligand is more fluorescent than the salt. Complexation quenches the fluorescence emission, especially when the ligand is singly or doubly deprotonated.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Three incommensurately modulated γ-brass-related composite structures in the Ni–Zn system have been described using a (3+1)D superspace description.

      The synthesis of a chloridozinc complex with an oxalic amidine ligand and its application as a catalyst in the ring-opening poly­merisation of lactide is reported. The polymerisation is well-controlled with good agreement between the experimental and theoretical molecular weights. Proton affinity studies and complex formation studies highlight the donor properties of the oxalic amidine compound.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Liquid ammonia and methylamine were used as solvents to prepare the trigonal-pyramidal [TeS3]2– and [TeSe3]2– anions from Zn, Mn, Te, S and Se. Heating to 50 °C in thick-walled glass ampoules gave the metal ammine-trichalcogenido-tellurates in high yield, including the unusual complexes [Zn(NH3)6]2+ and [Mn(CH3NH2)6]2+. Some of the compounds crystallise in polar structures.
