Achiral endohedral functionality provides stereochemical control in Fe(II)-based self-assemblies.

Abstract

Multicomponent Fe(II)-iminopyridine-based self-assemblies have been synthesized with variably sized internal functionality. Larger internal functions provide increased strain to the complex and confer diastereocontrol upon the assembly process. Complete diastereocontrol is possible upon the introduction of large achiral groups on the cavity interior.
