This communication reports design, self-assembly, solution, and solid-state characterization of nanoscale coordination cages formed by tetradentate cavitand ligands and appropriate metal precursors. The preorganization of the cavitand ligand in terms of structural rigidity and relative orientation of the pyridyl units leads to the exclusive formation of coordination cages in a wide temperature and concentration range. Desired features of the cage self-assembly process, such as reversibility in the presence of a competitive ligand and self-recognition of the cavitand components, have been assessed.

Abstract

This communication reports design, self-assembly, solution, and solid-state characterization of nanoscale coordination cages formed by tetradentate cavitand ligands and appropriate metal precursors. The preorganization of the cavitand ligand in terms of structural rigidity and relative orientation of the pyridyl units leads to the exclusive formation of coordination cages in a wide temperature and concentration range. Desired features of the cage self-assembly process, such as reversibility in the presence of a competitive ligand and self-recognition of the cavitand components, have been assessed.
