Guilded Rafts ... can be formed by heterometallic clusters. In their Communication on page 9663 ff., P. Braunstein, M. Bénard et al. describe the synthesis, structure, and theoretical analysis of a unique series of 2D raft mixed-metal clusters of the type {M[m]}n (M=Cu, n=3; M=Ag, Au, n=4; the bridging metalloligand [m] is {MoCp(CO)3}). Intramolecular, metallophilic d10···d10 interactions occur in the ν2-triangular (M=Cu) or ν2-square (M=Ag, Au) structures of the metal cores.

Grinding-Induced Chiral Resolutionfor001

The modern methods for transforming racemic conglomerates into enantiomerically pure crystals have their origins in the studies by Ostwald. In the Minireview on page 9600 ff., B. Kaptein et al. describe the development of the technique to its current status.

Functionalization of Indolesfor002

The indole system is ubiquitous in pharmaceuticals, and thus functionalization methods have been eagerly sought. The Review by M. Bandini and A. Eichholzer on page 9608 ff. reports the latest advances in the arylation and alkylation of indoles.

Fullerene Microspheresfor003

In the presence of a porphyrin polymer, unmodified fullerene C60 self-assembles to form complex superstructures in a controlled fashion. M. Takeuchi and X. Zhang also propose a mechanism for this process in their Communication on page 9646 ff.
