Cover Picture: Transition-Metal Complexes of an Open Geodesic Polyarene (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 29/2003)

42_29/2003Microscale deposition from the vapor phase, as described in the study by M. A. Petrukhina et al. on page 3375 ff., has yielded the first metal complexes of an open geodesic polyarene to have been characterized crystallographically. The {Rh2(CF3COO)4} unit shown at the center of the picture (Rh blue, O red, F green, C dark gray, H light gray) is sandwiched between two corannulene molecules. Three metal centers coordinate to corranulene units on both the concave and convex π surfaces.
