From supramolecular triangle to heteroleptic rhombus: a simple bridge can make a difference

Author affiliations

Abstract

Multicomponent, self-assembled rhomboidal constructs are reported, in which bis-terpyridines possessing 120° or 60° directionality and ZnII or CdII in a stoichiometric ratio (1 : 1 : 2) initially form rhomboid and triangle mixtures; whereas, a tris-terpyridine reacts with the 60°-based bis-ligand and metal to quantitatively form a heteroleptic, centrally fused, rhomboidal structure.
