Cover Picture: Supramolecular Coordination Assemblies of Dinuclear FeIII Complexes (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 27/2005)
Busy bees may also find the honeycomb networks shown in the cover picture attractive. The networks are based on dinuclear FeIII subunits, aminocarboxylic acid ligands, and potassium counterions. The properties of the hydrophobic organic ligands strongly influence the structure of the hydrophilic inorganic zone which in turn affects the overall structure of the supramolecular assemblies. For more information on this approach see the Communication by W. Schmitt, A. K. Powell, and co-workers on page 4187 ff.
