Rigid carboxylate linkers allow the orientated aggregation of Ni6-substituted polyoxotungstates under hydrothermal conditions, as G.-Y. Yang et al. describe in their Communication on page 3909 ff. The syntheses lead to unusual one, two, and three-dimensional organic polyoxometallte structures formed of monomeric, dimeric, or polymeric helical secondary structural units.

Solid-State Reactionsfor001

The equilibration of an oxide with the surrounding oxygen partial pressure is a complex, multistep process, but its fine details can nevertheless be studied. In the Review on page 3874 ff., R. Merkle and J. Maier describe the processes involved in the incorporation of oxygen in the model perovskite SrTiO3.


The rapid oxidation of water with a stable, entirely inorganic ruthenium polyoxometalate is presented by C. Hill et al. in their Communication on page 3896 ff. The results show that the complex remains intact during the reaction.

Supramolecular Catalysisfor003

A supramolecular catalyst reduces α,β-unsaturated carboxylic acids into aldehydes, as reported by B. Breit and T. Šmejkal on page 3946 ff. The reaction proceeds at mild conditions, tolerates many functional groups, and liberates CO2 as the only stoichiometric by-product.
