2014_33/2014Investigating the Formation Mechanism of Arene Ruthenium Metallacycles by NMR Spectroscopy (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 33/2014)

The cover picture shows how straightforward the synthesis of arene ruthenium metalla-assemblies is: It consists of mixing different building blocks in an appropriate solvent with a precise stoichiometry, followed by a germination period, before harvesting the resulting metalla-assembly. The germination period, involving assembly-disassembly, self-repairing, and rearrangement of the building blocks, has been studied by NMR spectroscopy. The elucidation of the formation mechanism has given valuable answers for the future design of arene ruthenium metalla-assemblies. Details are discussed in the article by B. Therrien et al. on p. 5651 ff. For more on the story behind the cover research, see the Cover Profile.
