      Carbene Complexes Based on Dilithium Methandiides (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 11/2015)

      Viktoria H. Gessner, Julia Becker and Kai-Stephan Feichtner

      Article first published online: 10 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201590041

      The cover picture shows the versatility of methandiide-based carbene complexes with respect to the bonding situation and the metals applicable. Although only a handful of suitable methandiide precursors are available, they have led to a myriad of carbene-like complexes with metals covering the whole periodic table. The flexible bonding situation – illustrated by the two springs connecting the carbon and metal atoms – determines the unique electronic properties and reactivities of these compounds. Details are presented in the Microreview by V. H. Gessner et al. on p. 1841 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

    1. Methandiide Ligands

      Carbene Complexes Based on Dilithium Methandiides (pages 1841–1859)

      Viktoria H. Gessner, Julia Becker and Kai-Stephan Feichtner

      Article first published online: 17 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201500051

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Methandiide ligands give access to carbene complexes with unique electronic properties. The metal–carbon interactions in these complexes cover a range of bonding situations and allow the isolation of complexes with metals from the whole periodic table. We focus on the latest developments in methandiide chemistry and give an overview of the preparation and electronic structures of these complexes.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Coordination of diimine ligands to a Mo3S7 cluster afforded complexes of the formula Mo3S7X4(diimine) (X = Cl or Br). The clusters with the novel imidazophenanthroline ligand IPDOP are luminescent and have moderate quantum yields. Furthermore, interaction of the NH group of IPDOP with several anions (F, AcO, and OH) resulted in a remarkable shift of the emission spectrum to longer wavelengths.

      Frozen-matrix photolysis studies of M(CO)2(N2Ph)(PPh3)2 cations (M = Fe and Ru) have revealed end-on/side-on photochemical linkage isomerism of the phenylazo ligand. The previously reported solvent-dependent vibrational bands of the Ru(CO)2(N2Ph)(PPh3)2 cation have now been identified as an equilibrium between the two linkage isomers.

      Article first published online: 6 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201500049

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four iodoargentate hybrids are fabricated through reaction of the same reactants in different solvent systems. The solvent impacts the aggregation modes of the cationic species, which consequently directs the formation of anionic frameworks. These hybrids display excellent photocatalytic properties for the degradation of rhodamine B, and 4 displays low-temperature reversible thermochromism.
