Cyclic disulfide macrocycles were rapidly synthesized cleanly and selectively from rigid dithiols via oxidation with iodine when activated by pnictogen additives (As and Sb) [61].
The Fe atom layers of these pnictide systems are normally sandwiched by pnictogen, for example, Arsenic (As).
We speculate that the observed strong correlation between [T.sub.c] and M stems from the fact that the superconducting critical temperature [T.sub.c] depends very sensitively on the iron pnictogen (i.e., Fe-As-Fe) bond angle which in turn, depends on the Fe-As layer separation [19].
New synthetic methods are being explored for the synthesis of unusual [Pi]-bonded pnictogen and chalcogen compounds which may yield novel polymers and pharmaceuticals.
The authors have organized the main body of their text in eight chapters devoted to a collection of basic concepts in inorganic chemistry, alkali and alkaline earth metals, group thirteen elements, group fourteen elements, nitrogen, the heavier pnictogens, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
Burford's research group focuses on the chemistry of the heavier Group 15 elements, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony, and bismuth (collectively known as the pnictogens).
