Large heterometallic coordination cages with gyrobifastigium-like geometry

Author affiliations

Abstract

Large (Mw > 10 kDa) heterometallic coordination cages with gyrobifastigium-like geometry are obtained by using metalloligands with sterically demanding FeII clathrochelate cores and four divergent pyridyl groups. Upon reaction with cis-blocked PtII and PdII complexes, MII8L4 cages are formed. The gyrobifastigium geometry of these cages is in contrast to the barrel-like structures which are typically observed for metallasupramolecular assemblies with M8L4 stoichiometry.
