Cover illustration: Complexing chloroquine (CQ), a drug used in the prevention or treatment of malaria, with metal-containing fragments such as gold(I) triphenylphosphine can enhance the ability to combat CQ-resistant strains of malaria. In the structure of the salt [Au(C18H27ClN3)(C18H15P)](NO3)2, the gold(I) atom is in a nearly linear coordination [bridging angle N-Au-P = 176.94 (6)°] defined by the N atom of the quinoline ring and the P atom of the triphenylphosphine group.
