2013_24/2013Method for the Preparation of Nonracemic Bis-Cyclometalated Iridium(III) Complexes (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 24/2013)

The cover picture shows the Λ- and Δ-enantiomers of a bis-cyclometalated Ir(III) complex and their corresponding mirror-imaged CD spectra. These non-racemic complexes and derivatives thereof were obtained by utilizing salicyloxazolines (X = O) and salicylthiazolines (X = S) as chiral auxiliaries (R = tBu or iPr). The background shows the silhouette of Landgrave' s Castle, which sits enthroned above the historic city of Marburg. Details are discussed in the article by E. Meggers et al. on p. 4164 ff.
