The authors would like to thank all people that helped during the process of writing this manuscript. Very special thanks to Sascha Schäfer (now University of Göttingen) for establishing many of the herein described methods and many helpful discussions. Without the fruitful cooperations with Peter Schwerdtfeger and Roy L. Johnston most of the work presented would not have been possible. Therefore we wish to express our deepest gratitude to them and all of there group members. Furthermore, we would like to acknowledge financial support of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG SCHA 885/10-1). S. Heiles is deeply grateful for a PhD scholarship of the Fonds der chemischen Industrie.
