Selective guest recognition by a self-assembled paramagnetic cage complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

A cubic cage complex assembled from twelve bis-bidentate ligands and eight Co(II) ions provides a cavity that selectively recognises and binds coumarin in MeCN solution. The cage portals are large enough to allow guest exchange, but small enough to provide a kinetic trap; the cage paramagnetism facilitates detailed NMR analysis.
