A symmetry interaction approach to [M2L2]4+ metallocycles and their self-catenation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Dinuclear [M2L2]n+ (M = Pd2+ or Pt2+) metallo-rectangles have a rich history, particularly in molecular recognition, including self-catenation events. These structures are mostly generated via a ligand-directed approach with cis-capped M2+ corners. We report here a symmetry interaction approach using 3 : 1 complementary denticity, giving a new route to [M2L2]4+ rectangles and their self-catenation.
