Linking [2]rotaxane wheels to create a new type of metal organic rotaxane framework

Author affiliations

Abstract

Three new [2]rotaxanes with aromatic nitrogen donors appended to the crown ether wheel have been synthesized and used as ligands to coordinate Cd(II) ions. One of these yields a new type of 2-periodic, metal organic rotaxane framework in which the wheel rather than the axle is used to link the metal nodes.
