Infinite supramolecular pseudo-polyrotaxane with poly[3]catenane axle: assembling nanosized rings from mono- and diatomic I and I2 tectons

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mono- and diatomic I and I2 building blocks, despite their simplicity, can be used to generate complex hierarchical self-assembled architectures. Herein, the construction of a modular supramolecular poly[3]catenane and its conversion into the axle of an infinite supramolecular pseudo-polyrotaxane were achieved in a seamless process from the starting materials. The unique structural features, directionality, and iodine density of the obtained crystals demonstrate the benefits of a supramolecular design for polyiodide networks intended as solid-state conductors.
