For decades, the organometallic chemistry of the rare earth elements was largely dominated by the cyclopentadienyl ligand and its ring-substituted derivatives. A hot topic in current organolanthanide chemistry is the search for alternative ligand sets which are able to satisfy the coordination requirements of the large lanthanide cations. Among the...

This Tutorial Review presents an overview on the synthesis, characterization and applications of metal complexes containing curcumin (=1,7-bis(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-1,6-heptadiene-3,5-dione) and its derivatives as ligands. Innovative synthetic strategies leading to soluble and crystallizable metal curcumin complexes are outlined in detail. Spe...

Lightweight design is an essential part of the overall Volkswagen strategy for reducing the CO2 emission. The use of carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) offers an enormous lightweight potential in comparison to aluminum, enabling a weight reduction, if a load-adapted (unidirectional) CFRP-design is used, of up to 60% in automobile parts without...

The current library of amidinate ligands has been extended by the synthesis of two novel dimethylamino‐substituted alkynylamidinate anions of the composition [Me 2 N–CH 2 –C≡C–C(NR) 2 ] – (R = i Pr, cyclohexyl (Cy)). The unsolvated lithium derivatives Li[Me 2 N–CH 2 –C≡C–C(NR) 2 ] ( 1 : R = i Pr, 2 : R = Cy) were obtained in good yields by treatmen...

A series of brightly colored alkaline earth metal 1,3-dimethylviolurates M(Me2Vio)2 have been prepared and fully characterized. The title compounds AE(Me2Vio)2·nH2O (AE = Mg, n = 6 (3); AE = Ca, n = 8 (4), AE = Sr, n = 6 (5); AE = Ba, n = 4 (6)) were obtained by neutralizing 1,3-dimethylvioluric acid monohydrate (=H(Me2Vio)·H2O; 2) with 0.5 equiv....
