    1. Isotropic 3D π-Conductors

      Isotropic Three-Dimensional Molec­ular Conductor Based on the Coronene Radical Cation

      Yukihiro Yoshida, Mitsuhiko Maesato, Yoshihide Kumagai, Motohiro Mizuno, Kazuhide Isomura, Hideo Kishida, Masanari Izumi, Yoshihiro Kubozono, Akihiro Otsuka, Hideki Yamochi, Gunzi Saito, Kaplan Kirakci, Stéphane Cordier and Christiane Perrin

      The first coronene cation radical salt was electrochemically obtained by combining coronene with a highly-symmetric Mo6Cl142– cluster unit. The salt has a cubic structure with Pmequation imagem symmetry, and merohedrally disordered coronenes undergo an in-plane flipping rotation. The randomly charge-disproportionated coronenes form an isotropic three-dimensional π-conducting network.

    2. Bioorganometallic Complexes

      Self-Assembly Properties of NCN Pincer Palladium(II) Complexes Bearing a Uracil Moiety

      Toshiyuki Moriuchi, Ryohei Ohata, Yuki Sakamoto and Toshikazu Hirao

      Article first published online: 20 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400131

      Bioorganometallic compounds were designed by the combination of NCN pincer complexes with a uracil moiety to form intermolecular hydrogen-bonded assemblies, wherein the hydrogen-bonding patterns were found to depend on the ancillary ligands.

    3. Coordination Chemistry

      Insights into Different Donor Abilities in Bis(pyrazolyl)pyridinylmethane Transition Metal Complexes

      Alexander Hoffmann, Ulrich Flörke and Sonja Herres-Pawlis

      Article first published online: 20 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400056

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Eleven bis(pyrazolyl)methane complexes of the 3d metal ions iron(II), cobalt(II), copper(II) and zinc(II) are reported. Structural studies of these complexes and theoretical analysis by density functional theory show an interesting donor competition between the pyridinyl and pyrazolyl functions of the ligand.

    4. Metallacycles

      Cyclometalated Complexes of Platinum(II) with 2-Vinylpyridine

      Antonio Zucca, Luca Maidich, Veronica Carta, Giacomo L. Petretto, Sergio Stoccoro, Maria Agostina Cinellu, Maria I. Pilo and Guy J. Clarkson

      Article first published online: 20 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400052

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The synthesis, and analytical and spectroscopic characterization of a series of cyclometalated complexes of platinum(II) with 2-vinylpyridine (L) is reported in detail. The five-membered cyclometalated ring is particularly stable, likely due to partial electronic delocalisation.

    5. Zintl Compounds

      Crystal and Electronic Structures and Magnetic Properties of Eu3Tt2As4 (Tt = Si, Ge)

      Xiao-Cun Liu, Sheng-Qing Xia, Xiao-Wu Lei, Ming-Yan Pan and Xu-Tang Tao

      Article first published online: 20 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201301622

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Two new Zintl compounds, Eu3Si2As4 and Eu3Ge2As4, were synthesized by using the metal flux method and their crystal structures were determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The magnetic properties of Eu3Ge2As4 were measured and the coexistence of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic order was observed in the compound, which was confirmed by theoretical calculations.

    6. Photoresponsive Conductors

      Photofunctional Conductors Based on TTF-BODIPY Dyads Bearing p-Phenylene and p-Phenylenevinylene Spacers

      Keijiro Tsujimoto, Reiko Ogasawara, Takahiro Nakagawa and Hideki Fujiwara

      Article first published online: 17 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400103

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      New D–A-type TTF-BODIPY dyads (TTF = tetrathiafulvalene and BODIPY = 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene) with a p-phenylene or p-phenylenevinylene spacer have been synthesized. These dyads exhibit photoresponsive conducting properties such as photoelectric conversion functionality in thin-film samples and photoinduced conductivity in their single-crystal samples.

    7. Polymers

      Phosphorus–Boron-Based Polymers Obtained by Dehydrocoupling of Ferrocenylphosphine–Borane Adducts

      Souvik Pandey, Peter Lönnecke and Evamarie Hey-Hawkins

      Article first published online: 13 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201402021

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A new class of phosphine–borane adducts with ferrocenyl substituents, including the depicted ionic monomer containing a planar-chiral ferrocene moiety, was prepared and employed in transition-metal-catalyzed dehydrocoupling {with [{Rh(μ-Cl)(1,5-cod)}2] (cod = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) as catalyst} to give the first ferrocenyl-substituted poly(phosphinoboranes).

  2. Short Communications

    1. Catalyst Immobilization

      Transfer Hydrogenation Catalysis by a N-Heterocyclic Carbene Iridium Complex on a Polyoxometalate Platform

      Gloria Modugno, Angele Monney, Marcella Bonchio, Martin Albrecht and Mauro Carraro

      Article first published online: 7 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201402020

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      A divacant Keggin polyanion has been bisfunctionalized with a N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) iridium(I) organometallic complex, as confirmed by multinuclear NMR and mass spectroscopy. The resulting supported homogeneous complex efficiently catalyzes the transfer hydrogenation from iPrOH to benzophenone [with a turnover number (TON) of 680 and a turnover frequency (TOF) of up to 540 h–1].

    2. Molecular Metals

      Pressure-Induced Metallic Conductivity in the Single-Component Molecular Crystal [Ni(dmit)2]

      Hengbo Cui, Takao Tsumuraya, Tsuyoshi Miyazaki, Yoshinori Okano and Reizo Kato

      Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201400130

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Four-probe electrical resistivity measurements on the single-component molecular crystal [Ni(dmit)2] (dmit = 1,3-dithiole-2-thione-4,5-dithiolate) up to 25.5 GPa by using a diamond anvil cell (DAC) technique with high-quality hydrostatic conditions reveal a metallic state above 15.9 GPa. Ab initio DFT calculations and tight-binding band calculations indicate a 3D Fermi surface under high pressure, which explains the metallic state.

    1. SERS Substrates

      Exotic 3D Hierarchical ZnO–Ag Hybrids as Recyclable Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Substrates for Multifold Organic Pollutant Detection

      Xuan He, Hui Wang, Qi Zhang, Zhongbo Li and Xiaochuan Wang

      Article first published online: 6 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/ejic.201402014

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Recyclable and sensitive surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) sensors for the detection of organic pollutants were fabricated by an efficient and green approach from 3D hierarchical ZnO–Ag hybrids. The unique repeatable detection of rhodamine 6G (R6G) and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) demonstrates a new route to eliminate the single-use problem of traditional SERS substrates.

    2. Catalyst Design
