The Scope of NMR Studies on Paramagnetic
By K . E. Schwarzhans[*I
N M R techniques were originally assumed t o be suitable only
for the study of diamagnetic substances, in the same way that
ESR methods are only applicable t o paramagnetic compounds. About 10 years ago McConneNcll developed a model
showing that paramagnetic compounds also give N M R
spectra in almost all cases in which the electron relaxation
times are shorter than 10-6 seconds. The most striking feature
of the N M R spectrum of a paramagnetic compound is the
exceptionally large shift of the resonance signals compared
t o those in the spectra of comparable diamagnetic substances.
According to McConnell, these shifts arise from the delocalization of unpaired electrons over the whole molecule.
Contradictions between the McConnell model and experiment became apparent during N M R studies on the paramagnetic representatives of the bis(cyclopentadieny1)metal
complexes of the 3d elements. The IH-NMR spectra of this
class of substances becomes readily interpretable, however,
if direct transfer of unpaired electrons from partly occupied
d orbitals of the central metal atom to s orbitals of the ligand
hydrogen atoms is assumed t o occur in addition to electron
This postulate was tested by means of the IH- and l4N-NMR
spectra of a large number of substituted bis(cyc1opentadieny1)metal complexes and bis(salicyla1dehydato) and bis(salicylideneiminato) complexes of cobalt(r1) and nickel(1r)
containing pyridine and picolines as axial ligands. In every
case the sign and magnitude of the shift showed a strong
dependence on the position of the relevant nucleus in the
molecule. Shifts of up t o I % of the resonance frequency
were observed. In extreme terms, a strong direct electron
transfer, e.g. in the bis(cyclopentadieny1)metal complexes
studied, can be regarded as leading to a metal-hydrogencarbon bond. Results obtained by I . A . Ronova [2J from electron diffraction studies on bis(cyclopentadienyl)metal complexes, which show the cyclopentadienyl protons t o be deflected out of the plane of the ring in the direction of the
metal atoms, lend support to this concept.

The Structure of Molten Alloys in Relation to their
By S . Steeb [*I
Results of wide-angle X-ray studies on molten metals and
alloys were used for the plotting of electron distribution
curves from which four pieces of information could be obtained: Classification of the melt; partial and total coordination numbers; the Cowley short range order parameter; and
finally, as the most recent development, the quantitative
resolution of certain alloys into their structural components.
We employed our new technique for measurement of the
small-angle scattering of melts at temperatures up t o 800 “C.
For molten aluminum, the isothermal compressibility
calculated from small-angle scattering agrees well with that
obtained from measurements on the velocity of sound
(2.387 x 10-6 bar-1). Small-angle studies on molten AI-Sn
alloys evidence the presence of Sn clusters.
According t o recent theories, the compressibility and electrical resistance[z] of alloys can also be calculated from
X-ray diffraction data.

Chemical Applications of Electron Microscopy:
Topotactic Reactions
By H . R . Oswald[*l
In 1919 V. Kohlschiitter introduced the term “Topochemical
Reaction” for chemical processes in which the properties of
the solid reaction products are determined by reactions which
take place on or in a solid substance, i.e. locally. “Topochemistry” ought to include all influences of structure and morphology of the starting materials and end products on the
course of reactions between solids and solids, solids and
liquids, and solids and gases.
Modern electron microscopy has proved itself an invaluable
tool for investigations in this field of chemistry. In addition
to the direct picture method - often carried out with the aid
of heating, cooling, and goniometer accessories - various
reproduction methods have been successfully introduced.
In the investigation of topochemical processes, electron
microscopical (i.e. morphological) findings must always be
combined with the results obtained by structural methods,
usually X-ray methods. Fine-range electron diffraction is
a n important method in this connection; also of importance are thermal analysis and specific surface area measurements.
In recent times, the term “topotaxy” or “topotactic reaction”
has developed within the broad field of topochemistry; it is
used to describe “reactions in which a product is formed that
has a crystalline orientation related t o that of the starting
material”. The mutual structure relations and course of the
topotactic rearrangement have been studied in detail on the
basis of the following three reactions:
1. Conversion of solid copper hydroxide salts (fluoride,
nitrate, nitrite, perchlorate, sulfate) into copper hydroxide in
sodium hydroxide solutions.
2. Oxidation of manganese(r1) hydroxide with molecular
oxygen (e.g. for a solid/gaseous system; influence of topotaxy o n the reaction kinetics).
3. Conversion in cobalt chloride solutions of zinc hydroxide
nitrate crystals, into zinc-cobalt hydroxide chlorides, which
can be prepared only by a topotactic route.
The definition of topotaxy as crystal structure nucleation and
growth relation of two or more solid phases has been discussed o n the basis of these studies. The three dimensional structure analogy of the topotactic partner claimed by several
authors can be dispensed with, for one- and two-dimensional
structure relations obviously also suffice. To delineate it
from epitaxy the topotactic reaction must embrace the whole
starting lattice.
