Coordination-driven face-directed self-assembly of trigonal prisms. Face-based conformational chirality.
The coordination-driven self-assembly of four different trigonal prisms from 3 equiv of one of four different tetrapyridyl star connectors and 6 equiv of a platinum linker dication in nitromethane isExpand
Synthesis of a bis(pyridyl)-substituted perylene diimide ligand and incorporation into a supramolecular rhomboid and rectangle via coordination driven self-assembly.
The synthesis of a bis(pyridyl)-substituted perylene diimide ligand and its incorporation into a supramolecular rhomboid and rectangle via platinum-mediated self-assembly is reported. Both ensemblesExpand
Ambidentate pyridyl-carboxylate ligands in the coordination-driven self-assembly of 2D Pt macrocycles: self-selection for a single isomer.
The coordination-driven self-assembly of discrete 2D macrocyclic species from ambidentate pyridyl-carboxylate-based donor ligands and platinum-containing acceptors is presented. All these species areExpand
Self-recognition in the coordination driven self-assembly of 2-D polygons.
Self-recognition in the transition-metal-mediated self-assembly of some 2-D polygons is presented. Prolonged heating of two or three organoplatinum reagents with 4,4'-dipyridyl in aqueous acetoneExpand
Ambidentate ligands capable of variable bond angles in the coordination-driven self-assembly of discrete Pt macrocycles.
Flexible, ambidentate pyridyl-carboxylate based donor ligands such as sodium 3-(3-pyridyl)benzoate, sodium 4-(3-pyridyl)benzoate, and potassium 4-(3-pyridyl)ethynylbenzoate self-assemble intoExpand
Incorporation of a flexible, pyridine-functionalized Diaza-crown ether into discrete supramolecules via coordination-driven self-assembly.
A flexible, pyridine-functionalized diaza-crown ether was self-assembled into discrete supramolecules of differing stoichiometries upon combination with various organoplatinum molecules. They areExpand
Bidentate ligands capable of variable bond angles in the self-assembly of discrete supramolecules.
Flexible donor ligands like 1,2-bis(3-pyridyl)ethyne or 1,4-bis(3-pyridyl)-1,3-butadiyne self-assemble into discrete supramolecules instead of infinite networks upon combination with organoplatinumExpand
Interconversion of Nitrenes, Carbenes, and Nitrile Ylides by Ring Expansion, Ring Opening, Ring Contraction, and Ring Closure: 3-Quinolylnitrene, 2-Quinoxalylcarbene, and 3-Quinolylcarbene
Photolysis of 3-azidoquinoline 6 in an Ar matrix generates 3-quinolylnitrene 7, which is characterized by its electron spin resonance (ESR), UV, and IR spectra in Ar matrices. Nitrene 7 undergoesExpand
Flexible bidentate pyridine and chiral ligands in the self-assembly of supramolecular 3-D cages.
Discrete, nanoscopic 3-D cages are prepared in high yield via coordination-driven self-assembly from a variety of building blocks, including bidentate 3-substituted pyridines, chiral, andExpand
2-pyrazinylnitrene and 4-pyrimidylnitrene. Ring expansion to 1,3,5-triazacyclohepta-1,2,4,6-tetraene and ring opening to (2-Isocyanovinyl)carbodiimide.
Tetrazolo[1,5-a]pyrazine/2-azidopyrazine 9T/9A undergo photolysis in Ar matrix at cryogenic temperatures to yield 1,3,5-triazacyclohepta-1,2,4,6-tetraene 21 as the first observable intermediate, andExpand
