Highlights include the formation of ultra-large macrocycles with over 200 non-hundred atoms within a given cycle. The realisation that single molecule magnetic behaviour is not limited to molecules with high spin states. The connection of S = 1/2 cluster rings using a fragment that can switch on magnetic exchange between the clusters is extremely interesting for the synthesis of QBITs and electronically switchable units spatially well organised have been identified as providing routes to designing quantum cellular automata. The isolation of a fundamentally new DNA-small molecule binding mode via a three-way-junction has also been discovered. A stable chiral polyoxometalate has been found as well as a POM fragment that appears to stabilize a Pt[double bond, length as m-dash]O moiety as well as a new Dawson-type structure that undergoes a coupled unprecedented structural and electronic reorganisation.
