Combinations of three enantiomerically pure organic chiral linear tectons bearing two divergently oriented pyridyl units as coordinating poles with HgCl2 as a two-connecting V-shape metallatecton offering two free coordination sites lead to the formation of stair-type 1D enantiomerically pure mercury coordination networks.
A molecular turnstile composed of a hydroquinone based rotor and a stator bearing a tridentate coordinating site can be reversibly switched between open and closed states. The locking and unlocking processes may be read optically.
Combinations of two enantiomerically pure organic tectons 1 and 3 with either Zn(ii) or Cu(ii) cations lead to the formation of four homochiral 3D networks among which two, 1-Cu and 3-Cu, are robust porous crystals displaying homochiral cavities and permanent microporosity. 3-Cu porous crystals capture 66% and 20% of l- and d-tryptophan, respectively, after… (More)
The upbuilding of dirhodium tetracarboxylate paddlewheels into porous architectures is still challenging because of the inertness of equatorial carboxylates for ligand-exchange reaction. Here we demonstrate the synthesis of a new family of metal-organic cuboctahedra by connecting dirhodium units through 1,3-benzenedicarboxylate and assembling cuboctahedra… (More)
A molecular turnstile based on a hydroquinone luminescent hinge bearing two divergently oriented pyridyl units behaving as a rotor and equipped with a handle composed of a tridentate coordinating site considered as the stator was synthesized and its structure was studied in the solid state by X-ray diffraction on single crystal. Its dynamic behaviour in… (More)
The use of compound 1 as an enantiomerically pure neutral and rigid organic linear tecton bearing two divergently oriented monodentate coordinating sites appended with two chiral centres of the same (S) configuration leads, in the presence of neutral metal complexes behaving either as a linear (Cu(hfac)2, Cu(OAc)2) or a V-shaped (HgCl2) 2-connecting node or… (More)
Upon combining enantiomerically pure bis-monodentate organic tectons with ZnSiF6, homochiral 3D cuboid architectures displaying chiral channels are formed.
