Luminescent rare-earth-based MOFs as optical sensors

Partha Mahata, Sudip Kumar Mondal, Debal Kanti Singha and Prakash Majee

Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 301-328

This perspective article highlights the basics and applications of luminescence-based sensing of hazardous chemicals, pH, and temperature using rare-earth-based metal–organic frameworks.

Functional metallosupramolecular architectures using 1,2,3-triazole ligands: it’s as easy as 1,2,3 “click”

Roan A. S. Vasdev, Dan Preston and James D. Crowley

Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 2402-2414

Self-assembled metallosupramolecular architectures generated using “click” ligands have become an increasingly popular area of inorganic chemistry.

Alkynyl-protected gold and gold–silver nanoclusters  

Zhen Lei, Xian-Kai Wan, Shang-Fu Yuan, Jia-Qi Wang and Quan-Ming Wang

Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 3427-3434

Alkynyl-protected coinage metal nanoclusters show new structural features and have interesting luminescence properties and catalytic behavior.

Copper(I)–NHC complexes as NHC transfer agents

Fady Nahra, Alberto Gómez-Herrera and Catherine S. J. Cazin

Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 628-631

The latest advances involving the use of copper(I)–NHC complexes as NHC transfer agents are described.

Generalization of the Tolman electronic parameter: the metal–ligand electronic parameter and the intrinsic strength of the metal–ligand bond

Dieter Cremer and Elfi Kraka

Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 8323-8338

Dieter Cremer and Elfi Kraka

The MLEP is a new, generally applicable measure of the metal–ligand bond strength based on vibrational spectroscopy, replacing the TEP.


β-Diketiminate complexes of the first row transition metals: applications in catalysis

R.L. Webster

Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 4483-4498

Although β-diketiminate complexes have been widely explored in stoichiometric studies, their use as catalysts is largely underdeveloped.
