- Bringing Redox Reactivity to a Redox Inactive Metal Center – E–I (E = C, Si) Bond Cleavage with a Thorium Bis(α-diimine) Complex

The reactivity of a redox-active thorium(IV) complex with CH3I and Me3SiI is shown to be divergent. This is a rare example of the use of redox-active ligands with the actinides.
- Coordination of Pentacyclohexanocucurbituril with Alkali Metal Ions and Supramolecular Self-Assembly in the Absence and Presence of Inorganic Anions

To find new coordination and supramolecular assemblies, the structure inducer anions [ZnCl4]2– and [CdCl4]2– were introduced into alkali metal/pentacyclohexanocucurbituril (alkali-PCyHQ) systems. These anions did not show the typical “honeycomb effect”, but played the role of linkers in the construction of alkali-PCyHQ-based supramolecular chains.
- Chiral Transition-Metal Complexes of Phenanthro-Annulated N-Heterocyclic Carbenes – Synthesis and Reactivity

Chiral phenanthro-annulated imidazolium salts were prepared from 9,10-phenanthrenequinone and 1-phenylethylamine and converted to N-heterocyclic carbenes. AgI complexes were obtained by reaction of the imidazolium salts with Ag2O and used for transmetalation with [RuCl2(C6H6)]2. Both the AgI and the RuII complexes showed restricted flexibility in solution.
- Flux Synthesis and Structural and Spectroscopic Characterization of a Cobalt Europium Trisilicate
Maria Wierzbicka-Wieczorek, Christoph Lenz and Gerald Giester
Article first published online: 23 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300018
A new structure type containing layers parallel to (001) built up from Si3O10 groups and Co2O10 dimers was determined to be the trisilicate CoEu2Si3O10. Light violet monoclinic crystals were obtained by using a high-temperature flux-growth method.
- P4 Activation by Lanthanum and Lutetium Naphthalene Complexes Supported by a Ferrocene Diamide Ligand
Wenliang Huang and Paula L. Diaconescu
Article first published online: 22 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300225
Zintl-type P73– complexes were synthesized from direct activation of P4 by lanthanum and lutetium naphthalene complexes. The P73– complexes showed fluxional behavior dependent on the rare-earth metal.
