Structural aesthetics in molecular nanoscience: a unique Ni26 cluster with a ‘rabbit-face’ topology and a discrete Ni18 ‘molecular chain’

Author affiliations

Abstract

The use of a previously unexplored Schiff-base ligand in Ni(II) carboxylate chemistry has afforded a Ni26 cluster with a record nuclearity that crystallizes with a unique ‘rabbit-face’-like topology, and a Ni18 compound that adopts an unusual ‘molecular chain’ structure.
