Conformation driven in situ interlock: from discrete metallocycles to infinite polycatenanes

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel conformation driven self-assembly system, where four metallocycles with different conformations have been in situ self-assembled, has been reported. Interestingly, only square metallocycles can further interlock into polycatenanes. However, rectangular and rhombus metallocycles fail to overcome such an entropically unfavourable process, which constitutes an obstacle to the formation of polycatenanes.
