      The cover picture shows cyclic diazastannylenes reported by Hahn et al., Russel et al., Zaitsev et al., and Jurkschat et al., which have intramolecular donor[RIGHTWARDS ARROW]Sn coordination in common. This coordination enhances the stability of the SnII compounds to the extent that the compound synthesized at TU Dortmund, shown in the forefront and reported in this issue, is even stable in air. Details are discussed in the article by K. Jurkschat et al. on p. 5836 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

      Version of Record online: 29 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301207

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Anionic RhI complex 1 with two amido groups in the trans-position is remarkably stable. This complex is easily oxidized by one electron to give a stable, paramagnetic, tetracoordinated planar Rh complex, which was fully characterized. The equally distributed spin density over the Rh–N bond, bolstered by DFT computations, indicates an unprecedented two-center, three-electron Rh–N bond.

      Version of Record online: 16 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300535

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A novel type of intramolecularly coordinated N-heterocyclic diazastannylene is reported that holds great potential for subsequent chemistry due to its high stability in air and the many possibilities to vary the substituents.

    2. “Self-Activating” Chemical Nuclease

      Reaction of a Bis(benzoylhydrazone) with Copper(II): Complex Formation, Hydroxylation, and DNA Cleavage Activity (pages 5843–5853)

      Version of Record online: 16 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300968

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A ditopic hydrazone ligand H2L forms tetranuclear copper(II) complexes and suffers hydroxylation during synthesis under aerobic conditions. The redox reactions involved can be exploited to cleave DNA oxidatively, even in the absence of external reducing agents (“self-activating” chemical nuclease).

      Version of Record online: 8 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300816

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Introduction of a long quaterphenyl “tail” at the 4′-position of terpyridine results in a ligand that forms a ZnII complex, which, in the solid state, retains aromatic···aromatic head-group interactions as seen in the complex of the unsubstituted ligand.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      We describe the synthesis and characterization of a new potential high-energy dense oxidizer, (2-fluoro-2,2-dinitroethyl)-2,2,2-trinitroethylnitramine. Its potential in solid rocket propellants was investigated on the basis of quantum chemical calculations. Precursors to this material were characterized completely, and their energetic performances were estimated using the program package EXPLO5.

    6. Dysprosium Cubane

      3D Organization of Dysprosium Cubanes (pages 5879–5885)

      [Dy43-OH)33-O)(NOPyCOO)6(OH)(H2O)3·(DMF)3(H2O)12] (NOPyCOO = pyridine-4-carboxylate N-oxide) is a lanthanide-based coordination polymer with large three-dimensional channels and with potentially high surface areas. It also exhibits the onset of a weak in-field single-molecule-magnet behavior.

    7. Calcium Pyrophosphates

      Synthesis and Characterisation of Hydrated Calcium Pyrophosphate Phases of Biological Interest (pages 5886–5895)

      Pierre Gras, Christian Rey, Olivier Marsan, Stéphanie Sarda and Christèle Combes

      Version of Record online: 14 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300955

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four forms of calcium pyrophosphate hydrate (CPP) have been synthesised and characterised by complementary techniques. There are no intermediates or other metal ions in the fast one-step synthesis method, which is performed under controlled pH and temperature. This approach may help us to understand the formation of CPP crystals, which are involved in several types of arthritis.

    8. Ring-Opening Polymerisation

      Kinetic Analysis of the Living Ring-Opening Polymerisation of L-Lactide with Tin(II) Initiators (pages 5896–5905)

      Lingfang Wang, Manfred Bochmann, Roderick D. Cannon, Jean-François Carpentier, Thierry Roisnel and Yann Sarazin

      Version of Record online: 18 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300964

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A detailed kinetic treatment of the living ring-opening polymerisation of L-lactide is proposed. This model gives access to the initiation (ki) and the propagation rate constants (kp). The model has been illustrated by using a variety of tin(II) precatalysts, including a dimeric one, for which it is demonstrated that a partial kinetic order of 0.5 is to be expected.

    9. Facile Solution-Phase Synthesis of CuInSe2 Nanocrystals with Controlled Morphologies (pages 5906–5910)

      Tianyu Bai, Feifei Li, He Huang, Zhaorui Wang, Zhan Shi, Chunguang Li, Ge Wang and Shouhua Feng

      Version of Record online: 8 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301069

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      CuInSe2 nanocrystals with a trigonal-pyramidal shape were successfully synthesized by a facile solution-phase route. When copper stearate was used as the precursor, a spherical shape was obtained, and this further evolved into an ellipsoid by tuning the concentration of oleylamine. The results demonstrate that precise control of the morphology of CuInSe2 nanocrystals can be achieved.

    10. Lanthanide Complexes

      Effect of Ligand Polarization on Asymmetric Structural Formation for Strongly Luminescent Lanthanide Complexes (pages 5911–5918)

      Version of Record online: 8 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301102

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      EuIII complexes with three hexafluoroacetylacetonate and two monodentate phosphine oxide ligands exhibit characteristic square-antiprismatic or trigonal-dodecahedral structures depending on the ligand polarization. Ligands with large dipole moments result in characteristic dodecahedron structures and markedly high emission quantum yields (72 % in [D6]acetone, 85 % in the solid state).
