      Totally radical: Gas-phase complexes of the cysteine thiyl radical with alkali metal ions remain tridentate (S,O,N) sulfur-based radical species (see figure). Meanwhile, silver ions facilitate rearrangement of the thiyl radical into other isomers.

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      The cover picture shows the crystal structure of a PdII derivative belonging to a new family of metal complexes supported by meso-tetraaryl-substituted porphyrin ligands. Thermal studies reveal that this compound behaves as a liquid crystal material, exhibiting a columnar mesophase under polarized light. Both the number of terminal alkyl chains and the metal centre play key roles in inducing mesomorphic behaviour. Details are given in the Full Paper by M. Cano, M. G. P. M. S. Neves, C. Lodeiro et al. (DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500557).

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Fished out of wastewater: One-dimensional magnetic core–shell composite nanofibers with porous structures have been fabricated using organometallic compounds as templates. These composite materials were obtained using a solvothermal process and degraded the dye Congo red in a model of wastewater treatment. Furthermore, these composites could be recovered using magnets and reused.

      Dr. Anjon Kumar Mondal, Dr. Hao Liu, Xiuqiang Xie, Katja Kretschmer and Prof. Guoxiu Wang

      Article first published online: 2 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500528

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Working better together: Multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT)–ZnMn2O4 nanoparticles were fabricated by a hydrothermal method without further thermal treatment. Owing to the synergistic effect and strong interactions between the MWCNTs and ZnMn2O4 nanoparticles, the MWCNT–ZnMn2O4 composite exhibited a higher specific capacity (809 mA h g−1; see figure), good rate capability and stable cycling performance compared to pristine ZnMn2O4 nanoparticles and MWCNTs.

    3. Photometric Detection of Nitric Oxide Using a Dissolved Iron(III) Corrole as a Sensitizer

      Dr. Stefan Fischer, Jenya Vestfrid, Dr. Atif Mahammed, Felix Herrmann-Westendorf, Dr. Martin Schulz, Dr. Jürgen Müller, Dr. Olaf Kiesewetter, Prof. Dr. Benjamin Dietzek, Prof. Dr. Zeev Gross and Dr. Martin Presselt

      Article first published online: 2 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500553

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      NO hiding from this sensor: Reversible binding of nitric oxide to an iron(III) corrole induces spectral changes close to the Soret absorption band, thus enabling photometric nitric oxide detection (see figure). Sensitive photometric detection in the picomolar range was possible using this amphiphilic iron(III) corrole. The amphiphilicity allows for self-assembly of the complex into thin solid films, which will be developed for sensing applications.

      Silver screen: We describe the electrochemical deposition of a mixed oxide on the Ag nanostructured surface of a commercial DVD. The VO2/V2O5 mixture shows interesting photoelectrocatalytic performance under visible-light illumination after diffusion of Ag+ ions from the Ag-DVD substrate through the layer and formation of surface vanadates. The sensing properties towards oxidizable organic substances, such as glucose, were tested (see figure).

      Solvent-dependent recognition: The recognition of anions by triazolium-amide-appended anthracenes in noncompetitive and competitive solvents was studied in detail (see figure; Pi= H2PO4). The solvent-dependent binding mechanisms between receptors and anions were confirmed by fluorescence emission titration, 1H NMR spectrometric titration and time-dependent DFT calculations.

    6. [Co2(CO)6(Alkynyl)] Complexes of Dibenzosuberyl and Dibenzosuberenyl Carbocations: Dibenzotropylium or Dibenzoheptafulvene?

      Dr. Michelle Harris, Dr. Sarah A. Brusey, Dr. Angela Moore, Dr. Yannick Ortin, Dr. Helge Müller-Bunz, Dr. Gabriele Manca, Dr. Carlo Mealli and Prof. Dr. Michael J. McGlinchey

      Article first published online: 6 JAN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cplu.201500477

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Turning things on their head: The observed high barrier to migration of the organic ligand between cobalt vertices in complex clusters suggests that the alkynyldibenzo[a,d]cycloheptenylium cation is better viewed as a dibenzoheptafulvene when coordinated to a cationic [Co2(CO)6] fragment. DFT calculations reveal that coordination of the alkyne to a [Co2(CO)6] unit inverts the aromatic (4n+2) and antiaromatic (4n) character of cyclic substituents.
