Cover Picture: A Combined Gas-Phase Photoelectron Spectroscopic and Theoretical Study of Zeise’s Anion and Its Bromine and Iodine Analogues (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 26/2012)
Zeise's anion is the quintessential organometallic compound first synthesized by William Zeise in the 1820s. In their Communication on page 6356 ff., S. S. Xantheas et al. present a combined gas-phase photoelectron spectroscopic and computational study of Zeise's anion, which provides rich and detailed chemical-bonding and interaction information on the anion and its bromine and iodine analogues (Zeise's portrait taken from the Wikipedia entry on William C. Zeise).
