A series of electronic structure calculations has been carried out on an artificial anion binding host. The compound with four Pd(II) cations and a total of eight bis-monodentate pyridyl ligands forms by self-assembly an interpenetrated double cage with three binding pockets. Through the use of a simple push-and-pull model connecting the potentials of the… CONTINUE READING
