The synthesis and spectroscopic analysis of both "metal-only" and anion encapsulated dicopper(II) double helicates utilising a new 1,4-aryl spacer is described. X-Ray crystallographic analysis of the complexes reveal that the aromatic spacer increases rigidity in the complex, yet the complexes are still able to undergo a dramatic "coiling up" to bind anions… CONTINUE READING
