The Front Cover shows two forms of wavy patterns involving the element titanium. Whereas the architect Frank Gehry frequently applies titanium cladding to cover the wavy surface of buildings, reveals the structure of CuTiPS5 corrugated layers by an unique connection of TiS6 octahedra and CuS4 as…

Carbonate build up by metals: Whereas alkali metal carbonates are mostly insoluble in liquid ammonia, a carbonate analogue is formed by Bi and Sn by reaction of deeply colored solutions of polyanionc bismuthides and stannides in liquid ammonia and can be isolated as the potassium salt K5SnBi3⋅9 NH3.…
