2013_18/2013Structural Diversity of Coordination Cores in Homoleptic Tetraaryltin(IV) Dioxolane, Aldehyde and Imines: The First Octacoordinated Double Helicate Tetraorganotin(IV) Compound (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 18/2013)

The cover picture shows the diversity of coordination geometries due to intramolecular coordination provided by the pendant arms of the organic substituents in five homoleptic tetraorganotin(IV) compounds. The first example of a mononuclear, octacoordinated tetraorganotin(IV) compound, [2-(O=CH)C6H4]4Sn, and its double helicate nature is depicted at the center, surrounded by two hexacoordinated and two heptacoordinated complexes. Details are discussed in the article by I. Barbul, R. A. Varga, and C. Silvestru on p. 3146 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.
