Updating the textbook on intermolecular interactions

A researcher in Spain has analysed over five million intermolecular distances to propose a consistent set of van der Waals radii for the most naturally occurring elements.

Santiago Alvarez at the University of Barcelona was about to set his students an assignment analysing intermolecular distances involving lanthanides when he came across a problem. ‘I realised that such an exercise would not work because the Cambridge Structural Database arbitrarily assigned van der Waals radii of 2.0 Å to all elements not included in the short list established by [Arnold] Bondi. It seemed to me that a larger set of consistent Van der Waals radii was needed.’

To read the full story, please visit Chemistry World.

Remarkable stability demonstrated by tungstenacyclobutadiene complexes

Adam Veige and colleagues from the University of Florida, USA, report the successful isolation of the neutral ONO3- trianionic pincer-type tungsten alkylidyne complex [CF3–ONO]WΞC(tBu)(OEt2).

Remarkable stability demonstrated by tungstenacyclobutadiene complexes

Cyclooctyne, which is normally polymerised due to its internal ring strain, reacts rapidly with the pincer-type tungsten alkylidyne complex to give the first example of a bicyclic metallacyclobutadiene.  The pincer-type tungsten alkylidyne complex was also treated with alkyne substrates 1-phenylpropyne and 4,4-dimethyl-2-pentyne to give two more tungstenacyclobutadienes. The three tungstenacyclobutadienes made in this study all exhibit incredible stability.

Download the paper today to read how the team have explored the factors contributing to this stability.
