2016_13-14/2016Cover Picture: Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 13-14/2016)

The front cover picture shows an active enzyme with a single catalytic center under ambient conditions. Above physiological temperature it denatures, whereas a synthetic nanoparticle containing many catalytic sites is still active. Details are presented in the Microreview by W. Tremel et al. on p. 1906 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.

2016_13-14i/2016Inside Cover: Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 13-14/2016)

The inside cover picture shows the reduction of the size of coherent domains in a spin-crossover metal coordination polymer upon thermal cycling. The length of the domains displays a continuous decrease when the number of successive high-spin/low-spin/high-spin sequences increases. This observation reveals an irreversible structural fatigability, indicating a potential break in the 1D-chain morphology, and therefore sheds new light on a deeply investigated family of switchable materials. Details are discussed in the article by P. Guionneau et al. on p. 1961 ff.

2016_13-14b/2016Back Cover: Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 13-14/2016)

The back cover picture shows in the background, a schematic representation of the structure of metal–organic framework (MOF) MIL-103 built from edge-sharing [LnO9] (Ln = Eu3+, Tb3+) polyhedral chains connected by the tritopic linker 1,3,5-tris(4-carboxyphenyl)benzene. Upon UV excitation, the latter transfers energy to the metal cations, pumping up their light emission. Because the intensity ratio of the Eu3+ 5D0[RIGHTWARDS ARROW]7F2 (most intense peak) and Tb3+ 5D4[RIGHTWARDS ARROW]7F5 (next most intense peak) transitions is very sensitive to temperature, below 100 K, MIL-103 nanoparticles are among the best luminescent MOF cryogenic thermometers, with a relative thermal sensitivity of 2.85 % K–1 at 14 K. Details are discussed in the article by D. Ananias, J. Rocha et al. on p. 1967 ff.
