2006_03/2006Self-Assembly of a Tetranuclear CoIII-Metallacycle from the Reaction of a Bis(benzene-o-dithiolato) Ligand with CoII and Subsequent Aerial Oxidation (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 3/2006)

The cover picture shows the self-assembly of a tetranuclear CoIII metallacycle from the reaction of a bis(benzene-o-dithiolato) ligand and CoII after aerial oxidation. Two differently coordinated metal centres (syn and anti) are observed in the metallacycle even though a ligand with two identical donor sites has been used. This unusual structural motif is formed in order to avoid strong steric interactions between the ortho-sulfur atoms, which would result in a hypothetical dinuclear complex. Details are discussed in the article by F. E. Hahn et al. on p. 535 ff.
