      The cover picture shows several beautiful butterflies dancing on the surface of water. Each butterfly carries a molecule of the functionalized phosphine-substituted [FeFe] hydrogenase model complex that can catalyze proton reduction to hydrogen. The blue sky and green water represent a beautiful world in which man can coexist harmoniously with nature. This is the longing of the authors for the bright future of hydrogen energy. Details are discussed in the article by L.-C. Song et al. on p. 1886 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

    1. Emissive Pt(II) Complexes

      Emission Behavior of Secondary Thioamide-Based Cationic Pincer Platinum(II) Complexes in the Aggregate State (pages 1865–1869)

      Hiroya Honda, Yasuyuki Ogawa, Junpei Kuwabara and Takaki Kanbara

      Version of Record online: 14 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301404

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Cationic pincer platinum(II) complexes bearing secondary thioamide units show aggregation-induced emission (AIE) activity in chloroform/hexane and methanol/water mixtures. Hydrogen bonding of the thioamide units and interionic interactions are believed to contribute to the AIE activities.

    2. Macrocyclic Magnesium Complexes

      Facile Synthesis of a 20-Membered Macrocyclic Magnesium Sulfide Complex (pages 1870–1874)

      Wing-Por Leung, Yuk-Chi Chan and Thomas C. W. Mak

      Version of Record online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400045

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A 20-membered macrocyclic magnesium complex, [Mg{CH(iPr2P–S)}2(C4H2N2-2,3)]4, was synthesized by a one-step deprotonation of 2,3-pyrazyl-linked bis(thiophosphorano)methane {CH2(iPr2P=S)}2(C4H2N2-2,3) with one equivalent of nBu2Mg in THF.

    3. Tautomerism of Thiourea Dioxide

      Kinetic Evidence of Tautomerism of Thiourea Dioxide in Aqueous Acidic Solutions (pages 1875–1879)

      György Csekő, Ying Hu, Yanan Song, Tímea R. Kégl, Qingyu Gao, Sergei V. Makarov and Attila K. Horváth

      Version of Record online: 13 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400059

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Kinetic evidence of the tautomerism of thiourea dioxide in aqueous acidic solutions is reported. The reactivity of the two tautomeric forms towards ClO2 significantly differs in rate and also in mechanistic aspects. Whereas aminoiminomethanesulfinic acid reacts with ClO2 in a second-order process, the reaction of its tautomeric form, thiourea dioxide, with ClO2 displays autocatalysis.

    4. Difurobenzosiloles

      Synthesis, Photophysical Properties, and Self-Organization of Difurobenzosilole Derivatives (pages 1880–1885)

      Liangchun Li, Shuhong Li, Cui-Hua Zhao and Caihong Xu

      Version of Record online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400061

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Two difurobenzosilole derivatives are synthesized by annulation reactions. The presence of both furan and silole moieties in the π-conjugated molecules results in extremely high fluorescence quantum yields and good thermal stability. Single crystals of one derivative are easily obtained, but the other compound shows a high tendency to self-organize into 1D microfibers in various solvents.

      The functionalized phosphine-substituted complexes 19 have been prepared by the reaction of [{(μ-ECH2)2X}Fe2(CO)6] (E = S, Se; X = O, CH2) with Ph2PCl/Me3NO. Some of these complexes have been found to be catalysts for proton reduction to H2 under CV conditions.

      Version of Record online: 27 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301475

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The reactivity of three tris(pyrazolyl)borate ligands bearing donor groups appended to the 3- or 5-pyrazolyl positions has been examined with copper(I) under nitrogen and carbon monoxide atmospheres. The reversibility of [11C]carbon monoxide binding has been studied in the radiochemistry laboratory to assess the suitability of these complexes for 11CO sequestration.

      Upconversion-Luminescent Core/Mesoporous-Silica-Shell-Structured β-NaYF4:Yb3+,Er3+@SiO2@mSiO2 Composite Nanospheres: Fabrication and Drug-Storage/Release Properties (pages 1906–1913)

      Version of Record online: 28 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301494

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Novel hybrid materials based on vermiculite and anionic lanthanide complexes electrostatically connected to 3-methyl-1-propylimidazolium have been prepared. The intramolecular ligand-to-metal energy transfers and the luminescent properties have been investigated. The values of the emission quantum efficiencies (>65 %) are the highest yet reported for lanthanide-containing clay materials.

    5. Heteroscorpionato Ligands

      Unprecedented Formation of the First Alkaline-Earth-Metal Complex Bearing an Asymmetrical gem-Dithiolato Heteroscorpionato Ligand (pages 1922–1928)

      Version of Record online: 26 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301544

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The reaction between the lithium salt [Li(bdmpzdta)(THF)] and the Grignard reagent C3H5MgCl yields the first alkaline-earth-metal complex with an asymmetrical gem-dithiolato ligand, [Mg(κ3-NNS-μ-S-bppbte)]3 (1). It is formed through the unprecedented insertion reaction of an allyl group into a C=S bond. The same reaction with MeMgCl or EtMgCl affords the sandwich complex [Mg(κ3-bdmpzdta)2] (2).

    6. Heterocycles

      1,3,2-Diselena- and 1,3,2-Ditelluraphospholanes with an Annelated 1,2-Dicarba-closo-dodecaborane(12) Unit (pages 1929–1948)

      Version of Record online: 27 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301600

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The solution-state structures of some 1,3,2-diselenaphospholanes depend on the nature of R, and some derivatives dimerize reversibly in solution (irreversibly with R = tBu).

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Reactions of (NBu4)[ReOCl4] with N,N-dialkylbenzoylselenoureas (HL) give the expected products [ReO(L-κO,Se)2(OMe)] and [{ReO(L-κO,Se)2}2O], but also unusual species such as [ReO(L-κO,Se)2(L-κSe)], [{ReO(L-κO,Se)2}2Se3] and the respective diselenide depending on the conditions applied.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A series of aluminum complexes containing pyrrole–imine–pyridine ligands was synthesized and used in the ring-opening polymerization of ϵ-caprolactone and in the catalytic Meerwein–Ponndorf–Verley (MPV) reaction.

    10. Ruthenium Catalysis

      Ruthenium Halide Complexes as N-Alkylation Catalysts (pages 1974–1983)

      Version of Record online: 12 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400117

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Haloruthenium arene complexes have been tested as catalysts for the homogeneous redox neutral alkylation of tert-butylamine with phenethyl alcohol in the presence of 1,1′-bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene (dppf). Halide identity and arene substitutions influence the catalytic activity and both RuX(p-cymene)(dppf)][X] and [(RuX2(p-cymene))2(dppf)] (X = halide) appear to play a role in catalysis.

    11. Photoinduced Electron Transfer

      Tuning Reductive and Oxidative Photoinduced Electron Transfer in Amide-Linked Anthraquinone–Porphyrin–Ferrocene Architectures (pages 1984–2001)

      Jascha Melomedov, Julian Robert Ochsmann, Michael Meister, Frédéric Laquai and Katja Heinze

      Version of Record online: 27 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400118

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The initial photoinduced electron transfer (PET) in anthraquinone-(porphyrinAr)n-ferrocenes (n = 1, 2) is modulated by the HOMO and LUMO levels of the porphyrin chromophores by meso substituent effects. Electrochemical and spectroscopic data as well as DFT calculations were used to elaborate the preferred PET pathway in these architectures with different electron donation on the porphyrin.

    12. Heteroleptic Precursors

      Heteroleptic Group 2 Metal Precursors for Metal Oxide Thin Films (pages 2002–2010)

      Sheby Mary George, Bo Keun Park, Chang Gyoun Kim and Taek-Mo Chung

      Version of Record online: 28 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301296

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A proof for the suitable selection of ligands was shown through the design of heteroleptic group 2 metal precursors. High-quality group 2 metal precursors were achieved by designing heteroleptic complexes containing suitable ligands. Even though the complexes formed as dimers, these compounds exhibit higher stability and volatility than their homoleptic monomeric forms.
