      Platinum(II) Complexes Bearing 2-(9,9-Dihexadecyl-7-R-fluoren-2-yl)-1,10-phenanthroline Ligands: Synthesis, Photophysics and Reverse Saturable Absorption (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 27/2013)

      The cover picture shows the mechanism of reverse saturable absorption (RSA) of platinum(II) complexes bearing 2-(9,9-dihexadecyl-7-R-fluoren-2-yl)-1,10-phenanthroline ligands and illustrates the consequence of RSA, i.e. reducing the energy of the laser beam after interaction with reverse saturable absorbers. S0, S1, Sx, T1, and Tx in the picture refer to the ground state, first singlet excited state, higher singlet excited state, first triplet excited state, and higher triplet excited state, respectively. ISC represents intersystem crossing from the singlet to the triplet excited state. Heavy atoms like platinum can enhance the ISC and thus increase the RSA for ns laser pulses. NDSUCHEM refers to the North Dakota State University Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Details are discussed in the article by X.-G. Liu and W. Sun on p. 4732 ff.

      Synthesis and Crystal Structures of [(iPr3P)2Cu(μ-ESiMe3)(InMe3)] (E = S, Se): Lewis Acid–Base Adducts with Chalcogen Atoms in Planar Coordination (pages 4727–4731)

      Ralf Biedermann, Oliver Kluge, Daniel Fuhrmann and Harald Krautscheid

      Article first published online: 21 AUG 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300768

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Lewis acid–base adducts of trimethylindium and phosphane-stabilized copper(I) (trimethylsilyl)chalcogenolates were synthesized and characterized by X-ray crystal structure determination. They are very unstable under atmospheric conditions and decompose at ambient temperatures. DFT calculations reveal that the unusual planar coordination of the chalcogen atoms is due to steric crowding.

      Xu-Guang Liu and Wenfang Sun

      Article first published online: 9 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300466

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Platinum(II) complexes bearing 2-(9,9-dihexadecyl-7-R-fluoren-2-yl)-1,10-phenanthroline ligands exhibit a long-lived, broadband-absorbing excited state and strong reverse saturable absorption (RSA) at 532 nm for ns laser pulses. The substituent at the 7-position of the fluorenyl component exerts a pronounced effect on both the photophysical properties and the RSA.

      Sara Sabater, Jose A. Mata and Eduardo Peris

      Article first published online: 22 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300667

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The synthesis of iridium/palladium complexes based on the triazolium-diylidene ligand with a chiral chelate C–N ligand is described. The heterodimetallic Ir–Pd* complexes contain two axes of chirality related to each metal. The Ir/Pd* complexes are active in a sequence of two catalytic reactions, thus implying the isomerization and asymmetric hydrophosphination of 1,3-diphenylpropargyl alcohol.

      Rhodium(I) and Iridium(I) α-dialdimine complexes have been synthesized starting from [M(μ-Cl)(coe)2]2 (M = Rh, Ir; coe = cyclooctene). Treatment with O2 or H2 led to the formation of RhIII and IrIII peroxido complexes as well as an IrIII dihydrido complex. Unique diastereomeric α-imine-amine complexes were obtained after H2 migration to the diimine ligand.

They show thermo- and solvatochromic behavior owing to the change in coordination geometry from a terminally bonded octahedral copper center to a distorted square-pyramidal copper center with bridging chloride ions.

      Graphene-like α-Co(OH)2 2D ultrathin nanosheets have been exfoliated in formamide solution in a constant temperature oscillator. These exfoliated nanosheets display a loose architecture with a leaf vein-like grain at their edges. As an electrode, they exhibit ultrahigh specific capacitance and excellent rate capability, good charge/discharge stability, and long-term recyclability.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The structure–property relationship of Ni dithiolenes is studied by DFT. The connection of the change of the structure with the diradical character and the first excitation energy is a useful tool for the interpretation of the second hyperpolarizability and can be used to discover several mechanisms and factors that could be used to develop materials with large nonlinear optical properties.

The complexes show different molecular structures in the solid state depending on the diphosphane and metal used.
