Spontaneous self-assembly of a giant spherical metal-oxide Keplerate: addition of one building block induces “immediate” formation of the complementary one from a constitutional dynamic library

Author affiliations

Abstract

The addition of dinuclear {Mo2} units to a dynamic library containing molybdates results in the spontaneous self-assembly of a giant spherical metal-oxide species of the type {(Mo)Mo5}12{Mo2}30 while the required pentagonal {(Mo)Mo5} building blocks are “immediately” formed.
