      The cover picture shows the structure of a decanuclear cluster [Cu10Cl10(L)4], where L is 3,7-di(3-pyridyl)-1,5-dioxa-3,7-diazacyclooctane, generated by diffusing the CH2Cl2 solution of L into the MeCN solution of CuCl. The two stairlike [Cu5Cl5] fragments share two μ6-Cl and two μ-Cl atoms to form a unique [Cu10Cl10] cluster framework. Details are discussed in the article by Z.-G. Ren, J.-P. Lang et al. on p. 824 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

      A new hybrid material featuring unique phenol grafting sites was used to immobilize tetrabenzylzirconium on silica. Fully characterized single-site cationic polymerization species were obtained by benzyl abstraction with B(C6F5)3 as activator. As a result of reduced surface interactions, the polymerization activities of the well-defined neutral and cationic species were up to four times higher.

      Kumaranchira R. Krishnadas, Thumu Udayabhaskararao, Susobhan Choudhury, Nirmal Goswami, Samir Kumar Pal and Thalappil Pradeep

      Article first published online: 13 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301424

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Luminescent AgAu alloy quantum clusters are synthesized by the galvanic reduction of polydisperse plasmonic silver nanoparticles. Selective and tunable luminescence quenching by CuII ions depends on the solvent and protecting ligands. The tunability is achieved by variation of the metallophilic interactions between the AuI ions of the cluster and CuI ions formed by reduction by the cluster core.

      The synthesis as well as structural and thermal studies of the ternary ceramic Li2xZn1–xO are presented. The Li2xZn1–xO (space group P63mc, a = 3.2549, c = 5.2073 Å) phase forms under the action of two processes: the partial substitution of zinc atoms by lithium atoms and the inclusion of additional lithium atoms at the 2a site. At temperatures >700 °C, the ternary phase begins to decompose.

      10-Bromo-1,8-dichloroanthracene was quantitatively obtained by bromination of 1,8-dichloroanthracene and converted into 1,8-dichloro-10-(trimethylelement)anthracenes (with E = Si, Ge, Sn). Their crystal structures show a butterfly-like deformation of the molecules, which is also observed in case of the tert-butyl compound (E = C).
