A solution-processable dissymmetric porous organic cage


Two dissymmetric racemic analogues of the chiral porous organic cage, CC3, were isolated and unambiguously characterised as a racemate pair of the R,R,R,S,S,S and S,S,S,R,R,R-diastereomers (CC3-RS and CC3-SR). CC3-RS/CC3-SR equals the highest porosity measured for CC3 but is an order of magnitude more soluble, making it an excellent candidate for incorporation into a membrane for separation applications.
