      The cover picture shows the atom-economical and highly selective addition of carboxylic acids to propargylic alcohols to give β-oxopropyl esters. As background picture, one of the most famous sights of Chemnitz, the hometown of the authors, was chosen. It shows the bust of Karl Marx, in whose honor the city was named Karl-Marx-Stadt from 1953 to 1990. Today, this monument is not only a must-see for tourists but also the local meeting point for young skateboarders. One of these skateboarders represents the catalyst in our conversion. After coordinating the substrates, the ruthenium catalyst enhances the reaction by speeding it up and leading the substrates through the catalytic cycle, which is demonstrated by the dark-yellow loop. The pictures of the skaters are adopted from Fotolia (Copyright aroas/fotolia.com). We acknowledge graphic designer Jacob Müller from University Communications TU Chemnitz for graphic implementation of our concept into this picture. Details are discussed in the article by H. Lang et al. on p. 2939 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Ruthenium carboxylate complexes were applied in the synthesis of diverse β-oxo esters by the addition of carboxylic acids to propargylic alcohols. The catalytic system tolerates a broad range of functional groups and even facilitates the successful conversion of challenging substrates such as sterically demanding steroids.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A convenient synthetic (“click”) route to a chiral di-1,2,3-triazolylidene ligand has been developed and its coordination to Ag, Pd, Ir, and Rh was established. The latter complex has been studied in the asymmetric hydrosilylation of ketones.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Bis(cyclometallated) IrIII complexes featuring acetylacetonate-type ligands directly conjugated to dyes are prepared by an original synthesis. The introduction of an aromatic pendant promotes fluorescence from the singlet state of the functionalized OO unit.

      Dawei Yang, Yang Li, Linan Su, Baomin Wang and Jingping Qu

      Article first published online: 28 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201500304

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      CH3CN-coordinated nickel-iron heterodimetallic complexes [NiS4Fe(CH3CN)Cp*][PF6] and [NiN2S2Fe(CH3CN)Cp*][PF6], and complexes with small molecules coordinated [NiS4Fe(L)Cp*][PF6]n (n = 1, L = Cl, CO; n = 2, L = NO) and [NiN2S2Fe(L)Cp*][PF6] (L = Cl, CO) were synthesized and characterized crystallographically.

      Yu Gong, Han-Gook Cho and Lester Andrews

      Article first published online: 2 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201500317

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Laser-ablated U atoms react with HCN to produce HUNC, which is identified from its argon matrix infrared spectrum of strong N–C and U–H stretching modes. B3LYP density functional calculations show that the unobserved HUCN isomer has a 6.3 kcal/mol higher energy. Experiments with thorium atoms form the analogous HThNC species.

    6. Frustrated Spin Ladders

      Synthesis and Characterization of Frustrated Spin Ladders SrFe2S2O and SrFe2Se2O (pages 2982–2988)

      Article first published online: 27 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201500385

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      SrFe2Ch2O (Ch = S, Se) contain ladder lattices of high-spin Fe2+ (d6) ions that exhibit strong magnetic coupling. Geometrical frustration prevents long-range spin order above TN = 216 (Ch = S) and 228 K (Ch = Se). The Mössbauer spectroscopy data require a more complex description because of the special local Fe coordination: a tetrahedron of one oxygen ion and three heavier chalcogenide ions.

    12. Magnetism in Coordination Polymers

      Structural and Magnetic Analysis of Retrosynthetically Designed Architectures Built from a Triply Bridged Heterometallic (CuL)2Co Node and Benzenedicarboxylates (pages 3028–3037)

      Soumavo Ghosh, Guillem Aromí, Patrick Gamez and Ashutosh Ghosh

      Article first published online: 2 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201500273

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Rationally designed connectivity between triply bridged bimetallic trinuclear nodes has been made from a trans-[(CuIIL)2CoII]2+ tecton. The design distinguishes between the carboxylate functionalities of the three isomeric benzyldicarboxylates and permits solely a synsyn bridging mode of ligation. Antiferromagnetic exchange interactions are associated with these complexes.
