      The cover picture shows how to develop low-migratory ferrocene-based burning-rate catalysts (BRC) for the next generation of rocket propellants. When the pieces of the “puzzle” fit perfectly, the combustion catalysts have optimal qualities, and the fuels last longer. The polycyano-based ionic ferrocene compounds described in this study exhibit high catalytic activity in the thermal degradation of ammonium perchlorate. Details are discussed in the article by G. Zhang et al. on p. 1496 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

    2. Bioorganometallic Chemistry

      Synthesis of CpM(CO)3–DAB and –PAMAM Dendrimer Conjugates and Preliminary Evaluation of Their Biological Activity (pages 1505–1510)

      Wanning Hu, Jan Hoyer, Ines Neundorf, Preshendren Govender, Gregory S. Smith and Ulrich Schatzschneider

      Article first published online: 12 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201403060

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Dendrimers of different generation and core structure are used as carriers for bioactive organometallic half-sandwich complexes of the type CpM(CO)3 (Cp = cyclopentadienyl, M = Mn or Re). Interestingly, the most-active compounds are the first-generation dendrimer conjugates, and the influence of the metal center is much less pronounced.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Among four fundamental factors (crystal structure, lattice parameters, particle morphology, and the density of basic sites), crystal structure is the aspect that most significantly affects direct NO decomposition activities of rare earth oxides (REOs), and the density of basic sites ranks second in importance to crystal structure.

      1-Hydroxypiperidine-2-one (1H, 1,2-PIPOH) is a cyclic hydroxamic acid that occurs in several siderophores as one of the three FeIII binding units. It can form neutral homoleptic complexes with tetravalent transition-metal (Zr and Hf), lanthanide (Ce), and actinide (Th and U) cations with a diversity of coordination stereochemistries ranging from the square antiprism to the dodecahedron.

      Two new polymorphic modifications of uranium metaphosphate are obtained, and their crystal structures are elucidated as well as those of previously reported thorium and uranium tetraphosphates. The uranium atoms are partially substituted by neodymium atoms in the structure of one of the uranium metaphosphates, and the substitution significantly affects the structure.

      Article first published online: 18 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201403159

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Two DOTA-based dimeric chelators are developed, and their dinuclear GdIII chelates are studied by variable-temperature 1H nuclear magnetic relaxation dispersion (NMRD) and 17O NMR spectroscopy. The distance between the GdIII centers is determined by double electron–electron resonance and by molecular modeling. Only a model with some level of aggregation could satisfactorily explain our results.

      Novel Mg-containing nitridosilicates, namely Ca2Mg[Li4Si2N6] and Li2Ca2[Mg2Si2N6], are presented. The nitridolithosilicate Ca2Mg[Li4Si2N6] is the second example of Mg in a fourfold planar rectangular coordination with N in nitridosilicates. Li2Ca2[Mg2Si2N6] is another representative of the novel subgroup of nitridomagnesosilicates with Mg2+ in tetrahedral coordination.

      Coordination tilt: Depending on the size of the Ln(III) ion, osmium–nitrosyl oxalato-bridged lanthanide-centered pentanuclear complexes exhibit two different coordination numbers, 8 or 9, for the central lanthanide ion, and both numbers are observed for dysprosium.

      Phase-pure zeolitic imidazolate framework Co-ZIF-9 can be prepared by modification of the commonly used synthesis procedure through pH adjustment, which suppresses the formation of the secondary framework, cobalt formate.

    16. Nanoparticle–Clay Hybrids

      Formation of Cadmium Sulfide and Zinc Sulfide Mixture in the Interlayer Space of Montmorillonite (pages 1631–1637)

      Jirabhorn Kabilaphat, Nithima Khaorapapong, Areeporn Ontam and Makoto Ogawa

      Article first published online: 13 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201403164

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A mixture of CdS and ZnS was prepared in unmodified and organically modified montmorillonite. The products showed emission bands owing to both CdS and ZnS. The blueshift of absorption onsets and the increase in PL intensity were caused by the confinement effect. CdS and ZnS formed separately in different interlayer spaces (segregation).
