31_11/1992The cover picture shows a model of the trigonal-monopyramidal comlex [V{[(tBuMe2Si)NCH2CH2]3N}] with V in yellow, N in red, and Si in blue. This unusual coordination geometry is enforced by the triamido ligand, whose sterically demanding trialkylsilyl substitutents also shield the empty coordination site. Complexes with this geometry could reversibly bind a series of substrates at the free coordination site and thus function catalytically. More about the synthesis and characterization of the vanadium complex as well as the titanium, chromium, manganese, and iron analogues is reported by R. R. Schrock et al. on p. 1501 ff.
