Metal-driven self assembly of C3 symmetry molecular cages

Author affiliations


A series of tris(2-aminoethyl)amine (TREN) derivatives functionalized on the arms with pyridine or methylimidazole ligands bind very strongly to a trisporphyrin derivative via apical coordination, with formation of molecular cages; the strength of the binding (Kb up to 108.8 mol−1 dm3) depends on the structure of the TREN derivative as well as on its coordination to Zn(II).
