Hot Article: Chirality effects on star-burst complexes

In their Dalton Trans. Hot Article, a group of Japanese chemists led by Hisako Sato, used vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectroscopy to study the stereochemical properties of a star-burst type tetranuclear Ru(III) complex. By comparing the VCD spectra of eight diastereomeric enantiomers, they were able to see the homo- or hetero-chiral nature of the bridging part of the compound which connected the central core and the peripheral region
