52_14/2013Cover Picture: Glaser Coupling at Metal Surfaces (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 14/2013)

On-surface synthesis enables the construction of defined nanostructures directly at surfaces through the covalent coupling of suitable organic precursors. These processes are carried out under ultrahigh-vacuum conditions and are monitored by scanning tunneling microscopy. In their Communication on page 4024 ff., A. Studer, H. Fuchs, and co-workers present a systematic study of the homocoupling of alkynes (Glaser coupling) as a versatile strategy for the construction of conjugated polymers at various metal surfaces.

Coordination Chemistryfor001

In their Communication on page 3864 ff., F. P. Gabbaï and T.-P. Lin report the successful installation of a telluronium cation, which acts as a Z-ligand, into the coordination sphere of a palladium(II) complex.


Nanomaterialsfor002

T. Liu, H. Peng, and co-workers describe the use of a unique counter electrode made of multiwalled carbon nanotubes that have been partially unzipped to produce bridging nanoribbons in their Communication on page 3996 ff.


Homogeneous Catalysisfor003

J. N. H. Reek and P. Dydio report a rationally designed regioselective hydroformylation catalyst in their Communication on page 3878 ff. Noncovalent ligand–substrate interactions allow control of the selectivity, and allows access to usually unfavored products.
