VIP: Layered Nitridomagnesogallates CaMg2GaN3 and CaMg2Ga2N4

Christine Poesl, Lukas Neudert and Wolfgang Schnick

Layered Nitridomagnesogallates CaMg2GaN3 and CaMg2Ga2N4

CaMg2GaN3 and CaMg2Ga2N4 represent two novel nitridogallates with layered crystal structures. Syntheses were performed by employing solid-state metathesis reactions, which is a new synthetic approach for nitridogallates. Owing to the strong structural relationship between both compounds, formation of composite crystals also seems likely.

VIP: Selective Displacement of a Scorpionand Triazole Ligand from Metallocyclam Complexes Visualised with NMR Spectroscopy

Selective Displacement of a Scorpionand Triazole Ligand from Metallocyclam Complexes Visualised with NMR Spectroscopy

A target-activated metal complex must first interact with a specific biomolecular target before it becomes bioactive. Displacing a scorpionand ligand from a macrocyclic metal complex is a promising mechanism for such target activation. We report a method to effect and monitor coordination and de-coordination of a pendant triazole ligand from metallocyclam complexes using NMR spectroscopy.

VIP: A Quest for Atropisomerism in Cojoined Square-Planar Metal Complexes: Synthesis and Structures of Sterically Congested Diplatinum Ethynediyl Adducts

Tianyi Zhang, Nattamai Bhuvanesh and John A. Gladysz

A Quest for Atropisomerism in Cojoined Square-Planar Metal Complexes: Synthesis and Structures of Sterically Congested Diplatinum Ethynediyl Adducts

One of the title compounds features two different phosphine ligands on each platinum end-group, the square planes of which are nearly perpendicular in the crystal. Although the conditions appear conducive to atropisomerism, apparently rotation about the PtC≡CPt linkage remains rapid on the NMR timescale.

Phase-Transition and Photoluminescence Properties of a Hybrid Layered Perovskite: Bis[(cyclohexylmethyl)ammonium] Tetrabromidolead(II)

Bis[(cyclohexylmethyl)ammonium] tetrabromidolead(II) exhibits not only photoluminescence with a remarkably high efficiency (quantum yield = 21 %) but also interesting phase-transition-related physical properties.

Synthesis, Structure and Properties of the First Examples of Hexacoordinate SnIV Complexes of Pyrrolyldipyrrins

The pyrrolyldipyrrin ligand was used as a tridentate ligand to prepare the first examples of hexacoordinate SnIV complexes under simple reaction conditions. The X-ray structure revealed that the two 3-pyrrolyldipyrrin ligands are perpendicular to each other around the SnIV ion.

VIP: Activation of CS2 and COS at a Rhodium(I) Germyl Complex: Generation of CS and Carbido Complexes

Theresia Ahrens, Bastian Schmiedecke, Thomas Braun, Roy Herrmann and Reik Laubenstein

Activation of CS2 and COS at a Rhodium(I) Germyl Complex: Generation of CS and Carbido Complexes

The activation of CS2 and COS at the 16-electron rhodium germyl complex [Rh(GePh3)(PEt3)3] is reported. For CS2 fragmentation results in the formation of µ-carbido complex trans,trans-[{Rh(SBpin)(PEt3)2}(µ-C){Rh(SGePh3)(PEt3)2}] on treatment of germylthiolato complex [Rh(SGePh3)(CS)(PEt3)2] with the boryl complex [Rh(Bpin)(PEt3)3] (pin = pinacolato).

VIP: Oxidizing Rhodium with Sulfuric Acid: The Sulfates Rh2(SO4)3 and Rh2(SO4)3·2H2O

Stefan Schwarzer, Annika Betke, Christian Logemann and Mathias S. Wickleder

Oxidizing Rhodium with Sulfuric Acid: The Sulfates Rh2(SO4)3 and Rh2(SO4)3·2H2O

Surprisingly, at high temperatures and in a closed system elemental rhodium can be oxidized by concentrated sulfuric acid. Such reactions lead to beautiful red-coloured crystals of Rh2(SO4)3, which is a rare example of an anhydrous noble metal sulfate. At higher temperatures the hydrate Rh2(SO4)3·2H2O forms instead. Both sulfates show a complex network of [RhO6] octahedra and [SO4] tetrahedra.

Ternary Layered Double Hydroxides (LDHs) Based on Co-, Cu-Substituted ZnAl for the Design of Efficient Photocatalysts

Co-, Cu-substituted ZnAl ternary layered double hydroxides (LDHs) were synthesized and explored as efficient photocatalysts for dye degradation. Recombination of electrons and holes is suppressed by the Co, Cu substitution, which enhances dye degradation even without activation of LDH.

Structural Arrangement of 4-[4-(Dimethylamino)phenylazo]pyridine Push–Pull Molecules in Acidic Layered Hosts Solved by Experimental and Calculation Methods

An orientation of a selected azo dye representing a push–pull molecule, intercalated between layers of acidic layered hosts, was modeled. The aim was to find whether the dye was able to form a noncentrosymmetrical arrangement.
