- Self-Assembly of Four Helical Metal–Organic Frameworks Based on 3-[4-(Carboxymethoxy)phenyl]propanoic Acid Ligands: Syntheses, Crystal Structures, and Properties
Jun Ji, You Zhang, Yuan-Fa Yang, Hai Xu and Yi-Hang Wen
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300185
Four new helical metal–organic frameworks have been synthesized by using 3-[4-(carboxymethoxy)phenyl]propanoic acid ligands and ZnII, CdII, CoII, and NiII salts. The shapes of the helical chains include single-screw, lemniscate, and tetraflexural helices, and their photoluminescence and magnetism are investigated.
- An Electrochemical and Raman Spectroscopy Study of the Surface Behaviour of Mononuclear Ruthenium and Osmium Polypyridyl Complexes Based on Pyridyl- and Thiophene-Based Linkers
Yvonne Halpin, Hella Logtenberg, Laura Cleary, Stephan Schenk, Martin Schulz, Apparao Draksharapu, Wesley R. Browne and Johannes G. Vos
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300366
The synthesis and immobilisation of a series of ruthenium and osmium compounds with novel pyridine and thiophene linking groups are reported. The monolayers are studied both electrochemically and by surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy.
- Structural Basis for Enantioselectivity in the Transfer Hydrogenation of a Ketone Catalyzed by an Artificial Metalloenzyme
Mickaël V. Cherrier, Sylvain Engilberge, Patricia Amara, Alice Chevalley, Michèle Salmain and Juan C. Fontecilla-Camps
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300592
A metalloenzyme consisting of a Rh-based catalytic head and a fatty acid derived tail bound to β-lactoglobulin catalyzes the asymmetric transfer hydrogenation of a ketone with an enantiomeric excess (ee). Calculations based on the crystal structure reported here show that the complex head can adopt discrete orientations, which may explain the ee.
- A Uranyl Hybrid Compound Designed from Urea-Bearing Dipropionic Acid
Yu-Bo Shu, Cong Xu and Wei-Sheng Liu
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300555
A uranyl hybrid compound with urea-bearing dipropionic acid as a well-designed ligand is prepared. The urea group plays a role in coordination and in hydrogen-bonding interactions. The uranyl ion can be selectively complexed and precipitated by this urea-bearing ligand from alkaline spring water in the presence of competing metal ions.
- Examples of Different Reactions of Benzylsulfanyl-Substituted Alkynes with Selected Complexes of TiII and CoI
Kai Altenburger, Julia Semmler, Perdita Arndt, Anke Spannenberg, Matthias J. Meel, Alexander Villinger, Wolfram W. Seidel and Uwe Rosenthal
Article first published online: 17 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201300312
Sulfur-substituted alkynes show contrasting behaviour in their reactions with TiII and CoI. Whereas the TiII centre in the titanocene η2-alkyne complex effects a cleavage of the alkyne Csp–S bond concomitant with C–C coupling, CoI in the [Co(triphos)] η2-alkyne complex leads to loss of the benzyl groups to give either a heterobimetallic Co/Ru acetylene dithiolate complex or a dithiolene complex.
