Out of focus: A recent Communication published in this journal describes the synthesis of [nBu4N]HCO3. The authors performed a single-crystal X-ray study that revealed a putative species described as an incipient hydroxide ion engaging in a long, and presumably weak, interaction with CO2. Our recent exploration of the coordination chemistry of CO2 with small ions leads us to believe that such an exceptional bonding situation is unlikely. Instead, we argue that the crystal structure is that of [nBu4N]O2CCH3 and therefore not representative of the bulk powder from the synthesis.

Experimental and computational studies of unconventional main group compounds : stable radicals and reactive intermediates Hurmalainen, Juha (University of Jyväskylä, 2017)Ever since their discovery, radicals have intrigued the minds of experimental and theoretical chemists alike. While the vast majority of radicals are transient species, a large number of stable and persistent radicals ...
Mattsson, Ida; Lahtinen, Manu; Peuronen, Anssi; Sau, Abhijit; Gunell, Andreas; Saloranta-Simell, Tiina; Leino, Reko (American Chemical Society, 2018)The major diastereomer formed in the Barbier-type metal-mediated allylation of D-mannose has previously been shown to adopt a perfectly linear conformation, both in solid state and in solution, resulting in the formation ...
Correlating Solution‐ and Solid‐State Structures of Conformationally Flexible Resorcinarenes : Significance of a Sulfonyl Group in Intramolecular Self‐Inclusion Pamuła, Małgorzata; Nissinen, Maija; Helttunen, Kaisa (Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2020)In this study, the synthesis of tetramethoxy resorcinarene podands bearing p‐toluene arms connected by ‐SO3‐ (1) and ‐CH2O‐ (2) linkers is presented. In the solid state, the resorcinarene podand 1 forms an intramolecular ...
Experimental and computational studies of transition metal complexes with polydentate amino- and amidophenolate ligands : synthesis, structure, reactivity and magnetic properties Hänninen, Mikko M. (University of Jyväskylä, 2013)Chelating polydentate ligands play a key role in several areas of modern coordination chemistry. They can be exploited, for example, in catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, heavy metal abstraction and molecular magnetism. ...
