White-armored Stormtroopers at the”Star Wars” movies are almost identical and nearly impossible to tell apart.

Terminal coordination of diatomic boron monofluoride to iron

Boron monofluoride (BF) is a diatomic molecule with 10 valence electrons, isoelectronic to carbon monoxide (CO). Unlike CO, which is a stable molecule in the room temperature and readily serves as both a terminal and bridging ligand to transition metals, BF is shaky below 1800°C in the gas phase, along with its controlling chemistry is substantially restricted. We report the isolation of the iron complex Fe(BF)(CO)2(CNArTripp2)2 [ArTripp2, 2,6-(2,4,6-(Id –Pr)3C6Htwo ]2C6H3; I-Pr, iso-propyl], with a terminal BF ligand. Single-crystal x-ray diffraction as well as nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared, and Mössbauer spectroscopic studies on Fe(BF)(CO)two (CNArTripp2)two and also the isoelectronic dinitrogen (N2) and CO complexes Fe(Ntwo )(CO)2(CNArTripp2)2 and Fe(CO)3(CNArTripp2)two demonstrate that the terminal BF ligand owns especially strong -donor and acceptor properties. Density functional theory and electron-density topology calculations support this decision.

Tesla changes course, will keep more showrooms openElectric carmaker Tesla is reversing course on its own decision to move most of its revenue on line, stating it’s going to keep a lot of its showrooms available — but will have to hike prices to achieve that. Tesla stated in an announcement late Sunday the new plan will indicate a three percent increase in the expense of the vehicles, but won’t use that to the lowest-priced Model 3, which is being sold for about $35,000. “As a result of keeping more stores available, Tesla will need to raise vehicle costs by roughly three per cent on average globally,” the announcement said.

Ethiopian Airlines flight crashes, killing 157

An Ethiopian Airlines passenger jet bound for Nairobi crashed minutes after take-off on Sunday, killing all 157 people on board and raising questions regarding the protection of the Boeing 737 MAX 8, a new model that also crashed in Indonesia in October.
