New Complexes of Divalent Thulium with Substituted Phospholyl and Cyclopentadienyl Ligands (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 4/2005)

2005_04/2005The cover picture shows the X-ray crystal structure of bis(1,3-di-tert-butylcyclopentadienyl)thulium(tetrahydrofuran), a new organothulium(ii) complex and the first one with all-carbon κ-ligands. Two new and particularly stable phospholylthulium(ii) complexes are also described. The very existence and relative ease of formation of the so far described thulium(ii) molecular compounds strongly suggest that many more such compounds can be prepared, provided that adequate steric and/or electronic protection of the thulium(ii) ion can be archieved, thus paving the way to new and hopefully exciting studies in the field of thulium(ii) chemistry. Details are discussed in the article by F. Nief et al. on p. 637 ff. The cover picture was rendered in POVRAY 3.5, and the initial input file was obtained with Louis J. Farrugia's ORTEP-III for Windows programme.
