      B-Mercaptocarboranes: A New Synthetic Route (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 14/2013)

      Kuanysh Z. Kabytaev, Thomas A. Everett, Alexander V. Safronov, Yulia V. Sevryugina, Satish S. Jalisatgi and M. Frederick Hawthorne

      Article first published online: 6 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201390058

      The cover picture shows a novel route for synthesis of 3-SH-1,2-dicarba-closo-dodecaborane. The reaction proceeds through Pd-catalyzed iodine exchange with the sulfur nucleophile TIPS–SH in ortho-carborane. The presented method makes available the previously inaccessible mono- and di-B-mercaptocarboranes from iodocarboranes. The thiolated borane clusters can be applied in thiol-based self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on surfaces such as gold. The properties of the SAMs can be finely tuned by the choice of the carborane isomer and the position of the mercapto substituent. Details are discussed in the Short Communication by M. F. Hawthorne et al. on p. 2488 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

      Article first published online: 15 MAR 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201201420

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Sputtered and spin-coated ZnO seed layers are used to promote the growth of vertical ZnO nanowires (NWs). All seed layers exhibit a time-dependent transition from a hydrophilic to hydrophobic state. In addition, control of the morphology and wettability of the NWs is achieved. NWs grown on sputtered seeds are superhydrophobic, whereas those grown on spin-coated seeds are highly hydrophilic.

      The synthesis, structures, and magnetic properties of new nickel(II) thiocyanato coordination compounds are described. The compounds in which the anionic ligands are only terminally coordinated show only Curie–Weiss paramagnetism, whereas those with μ-1,3-bridging anions show a metamagnetic transition. These results are compared with those of related compounds reported recently.

      Dioxaborinanes and benzodioxaboroles containing pyridyl side chains were synthesized. The boronate esters can aggregate through dative boron–nitrogen bonds to give trimeric and tetrameric macrocycles as well as polymeric structures. The assembly process was found to depend to a large extent on electronic effects.

      Functionalized core–shell CdTe/ZnS NPs were successfully synthesized in aqueous medium with thioglycolic acid (TGA) as capping ligand. TGA-capped CdTe/ZnS NPs were characterized and showed good fluorescence properties. The fluorescence intensity of CdTe/ZnS NPs was clearly reduced in the presence of norfloxacin (NOR), which makes it a good probe to determine the NOR in pharmaceutical formations.

      Several metal–organic frameworks of nickel(II) were obtained from [Ni(OH2)4(4-pyc)2] (1) (4-pyc = 4-pyridinecarboxylate): two polymorphs of [Ni(4-pyc)2]n (2a and 2b) and [Ni5(OH2)3(4-pyc)10]n (3). A detailed comparative structural analysis was performed. Compounds 1 and 3 were transformed into 2a by heating, and 2a and 2b are a rare case of coordination framework isomers.
