      CuII-Templated Threading of a Bis-amide-tris-amine Macrocycle by Substituted 2,2′-Bipyridyl Derivatives Assisted by Strong π–π Stacking and Second-Sphere H-Bonding Interactions (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 12/2014)

      Article first published online: 17 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201490056

      The cover picture shows a “wheel” that is composed of (1) a flexible tridentate metal-chelating site, (2) two parallel arene moieties that have potential for aromatic π–π stacking interactions with the aromatic part of the axle unit, and (3) a bis-amide functionality that can engage in hydrogen-bonding interactions with the suitable functional groups on the axle. The metal ion coordination and other two noncovalent interactions are operative simultaneously to obtain the maximum benefit of the templating strategy in the formation of the pseudorotaxane. Details are discussed in the article by P. Ghosh et al. on p. 2029 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

      Article first published online: 7 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301410

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The speciation of technetium after the reaction of KTcO4 in 12 M H2SO4/H2S(g) has been studied. The mechanism of formation can be described as a transformation from the yellow species TcVIIO3(H2O)2(OH) to the green complex TcVO(HSO4)3(OH) followed by polymerization, leading to precipitation of Tc2S7 and the presence of the polymeric species Tc–O–Tc coordinated to sulfate ligands in solution.

      Binary Lithium Indides Li22–xIn8+x (x = 0.1), Li11–xIn4+x (x = 1.05), and Li10–xIn2+x (x = 1.59) with Clusters (pages 2053–2064)

      Article first published online: 11 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301444

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Three new binary lithium indides were synthesized, and their crystal structures were studied by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses. All compounds crystallize in new structure types. The presence of [In2@Li20] clusters was detected in the structure of all three new compounds. The covalent type of the In–In bonding in the clusters was confirmed by electronic structure calculations.

    8. Pd-Catalysed C–C Coupling

      Functionalisable N-Heterocyclic Carbene–Triazole Palladium Complexes and Their Application in the Suzuki–Miyaura Reaction (pages 2088–2094)

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      New functionalised N-heterocyclic carbene ligands and their corresponding palladium(II) complexes have been synthesised and fully characterised. The use of a triazole moiety as a modular and stable linkage between the catalytic centre and a targeted functionalisation does not damage the catalytic activity.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The effect of the nonpolar organic medium on the properties of sodium 1,4-bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (AOT) reverse micelles (RMs) was studied. The organic medium affects the interface composition and interdroplet interactions, which have a great effect on gold nanoparticles synthesized in these media. Therefore, the RM properties can be affected dramatically by changing the solvent blend.

      Fabian Schax, Beatrice Braun and Christian Limberg

      Article first published online: 12 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400088

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A tripodal branched trisilanol ligand PhSi(OSiPh2OH)3 (LH3) was synthesized. Its reaction with three equivalents of CunMesn (Mes = mesityl) led to a hexanuclear compound [L2Cu6] with a planar CuI6 ring. Deprotonation of LH3 with n-butyllithium and subsequent reaction with either CuBr2 or ZnBr2 resulted in dinuclear complexes. In the case of CuBr2, the original ligand eliminates a “Ph2SiO” unit.

    13. N-Heterocyclic Carbenes

      PdII complexes with symmetrically and nonsymmetrically substituted benzimidazolylidene ligands are presented. The complexes exist as various isomers and rotamers in solution and exhibit C–H···Pd interactions in the solid state and in solution. All of the complexes are potent (pre)catalysts for the Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reaction in water and the hydrodehalogenation reactions of haloarenes.

    14. Metal–Organic Frameworks

      Structure Solution from Powder Diffraction of Copper 1,4-Benzenedicarboxylate (pages 2140–2145)

      The structure of copper 1,4-benzenedicarboxylate [Cu(BDC)] has been determined by X-ray powder diffraction and ab initio quantum mechanics (QM) calculations (Pequation image, 546.04 Å3). Extraction with methanol improves the Cu(BDC) crystallite quality. The Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) surface area is 903 cm2 g–1, the CO2 uptake is 5.2 mmol g–1 at 20 bar, and the selectivity for CO2 over CH4 is 2–3.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Hierarchical N-doped TiO2 microspheres with exposed (001) facets were successfully synthesized in a fluorine-free solvothermal reaction. Isopropylamine was used as the nitrogen source and as the capping and shape-controlling agent to generate the (001) facets. The hierarchical TiO2 microspheres exhibit good photocatalytic activity and high stability under visible-light irradiation.
