Generation of a Dynamic System of Three‐Dimensional Tetrahedral Polycatenanes†
Seven of the best: A dynamic combinatorial library of polycatenated tetrahedra was prepared by complexation between a dynamic Fe4L6 tetrahedral cage, constructed from ligands containing anExpand
[4]Pseudorotaxanes with remarkable self-sorting selectivities.
The synthesis and characterization of several self-assembled [4]pseudorotaxanes is reported, some of which form in a programmed way based on two similar yet orthogonal crown ether/secondary ammoniumExpand
Deposition of ordered layers of tetralactam macrocycles and ether rotaxanes on pyridine-terminated self-assembled monolayers on gold.
The deposition of tetralactam macrocycles and the corresponding benzyl ether rotaxanes on gold substrates is investigated for the first time exploiting metallo-supramolecular chemistry. TwoExpand
Mass Spectrometry and Gas-Phase Chemistry of Bismuth-Oxido Clusters.
TLDR
The mass spectrometric characterisation of bismuth-oxido clusters is described together with tandem mass Spectrometry experiments aimed at investigating their gas-phase chemistry and revealed that careful tuning of the conditions is required to avoid precipitates forming that hamper ESI ionisation.

Salicylate-Functionalized Bismuth Oxido Clusters: Hydrolysis Processes and Microbiological Activity
Hydrolysis of either Bi(HSal4Me)3 (A) or [Bi22O26(HSal4Me)14](B) in dmso gave the 4-methylsalicylate-substituted bismuth oxido cluster [Bi38O45(HSal4Me)24(dmso)14(H2O)2]·4H2O (1·4H2O), whichExpand
Phenanthroline‐ and Terpyridine‐Substituted Tetralactam Macrocycles: A Facile Route to Rigid Di‐ and Trivalent Receptors and Interlocked Molecules
Bromo-substituted Hunter/Vogtle-type tetralactam macrocycles (TLMs) represent key intermediates for the attachment of terpyridyl and phenanthroline metal binding sites through cross-couplingExpand
A cubic Fe4Mo4 oxo framework and its reversible four-electron redox chemistry.
TLDR
The potential of iron molybdates as catalysts in the Formox process stimulates research on aggregated but molecular iron-molybdenum oxo compounds and four reversible oxidation waves that are assigned to four consecutive Fe(II) → Fe(III) transfers and motivated attempts to isolate compounds containing the respective cations.
