Ring size matters: supramolecular isomerism in self-assembled redox-active tetra- and hexaruthenium macrocycles

Author affiliations

Abstract

Self-assembly of a divinylthiophene-bridged diruthenium complex with 2,5-furandicarboxylate leads to the formation of two macrocyclic structures that differ solely with regard to their respective nuclearities. Both supramolecular isomers were fully characterized and the conversion of the hexa- to the tetraruthenium macrocycle was followed by NMR monitoring.
