2015_24/2015Unexpected Reactivity of Red Phosphorus in Ionic Liquids (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 24/2015)

The cover picture shows the enhanced reactivity of red phosphorus in the employed ionic liquid. Dissolved iodine molecules (yellow spheres) etch red phosphorus, which results in either molecular iodides, for example PI3, or phosphorus nanoparticles. The formation of the different species is monitored by liquid- (top) and solid-phase (bottom) NMR spectroscopy. Details are discussed in the article by M. Ruck, E. Brunner et al. on p. 3991 ff.
