Inside Cover: A Simple Route to Univalent Gallium Salts of Weakly Coordinating Anions (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 18/2010)
Gallium(I) salts of weakly coordinating anions (WCAs), which are excellent sources of gallium in the oxidation state +1, are generated by a simple, high-yielding route. These salts open new areas of low-valent gallium chemistry that were previously inaccessible. In their Communication on page 3228 ff., I. Krossing, J. M. Slattery, and co-workers describe a salt of the [Ga(PPh3)3]+ ion as an example of a homoleptic gallium–phosphine complex.
