Enhancement of metal–metal interactions inside a large-cavity synthetic host in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

The encapsulation of a series of metal–terpyridyl complexes in cucurbit[10]uril (CB[10]) in water is described. A strong enhancement of metal–metal and π–π interactions is observed due to double confinement in the large cavity. Furthermore, a linear supramolecular polymer featuring host-enhanced metallophilic interactions in water can be prepared.
