Supramolecular five-component nano-oscillator

Author affiliations


A five-component self-sorted metallo-supramolecular nano-oscillator was designed based on the full orthogonality of three different dynamic complexation motifs. The oscillating motion in the machinery, determined as 106 kHz at 25 °C by VT-NMR, arises due to dissociation/association of the pyridine terminal of the oscillator arm between two zinc(II) porphyrin stations.
