Generation of metallosupramolecular polymer gels from multiply functionalized grid-type complexes

Abstract

A ditopic ligand (1), containing two tridentate bis(acylhydrazone) subunits and bearing both long alkyl chains and hydrogen-bonding groups, has been synthesised. Metal cation binding in the presence of a base leads to hierarchical self-assembly, forming first a neutral [2 × 2] grid-type complex (2) that hierarchically assembles into metallosupramolecular polymer gels in toluene.
