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 an electron‐deficient naphthalenediimide core, and an electron‐rich aromatic crown ether, 1,5‐dinaphtho[38]crown‐10. The highest order species in the library is the tetrahedral [7]catenane.WILEY-VCH 
Self-assembly of polyhedral indium-organic nanocages.
A synthetic strategy to construct discrete indium-organic polyhedra has been illustrated based on small three-membered windows from a 2,5-pyridinedicarboxylate (PDC) ligand with an angle of 120°.Expand
Self-assembly of a porous metallo-[5]rotaxane.
TLDR
A mechanically interlocked [2]rotaxane is reported incorporating a ditopic ligand moiety as one of the stoppers as a proof-of-principle system precedes work towards the construction of metal organic polyhedra with switchable mechano-chemical properties. Expand
Self-assembly of nickel-organic polyhedra with octahedral nanocage, magnetic property and sorption behavior
Abstract A novel nickel-organic polyhedron, formulated as [Me2NH]2 [Ni6(H3L)4]·(H6L)·3DMF·3H2O (FJI-10, H6L = Tris-(2-hydroxybenzylidene)benzene-1,3,5-tricarbohydrazide), has been successfullyExpand
Conformation driven in situ interlock: from discrete metallocycles to infinite polycatenanes.
A novel conformation driven self-assembly system, where four metallocycles with different conformations have been in situ self-assembled, has been reported. Interestingly, only square metallocyclesExpand
Self-assembly of triangular and hexagonal molecular necklaces.
TLDR
This work exploits the orthogonality of coordination-driven self-assembly and crown-ether host-guest complexation to obtain a molecular and molecular necklace based on a well-developed recognition motif of 1,2-bis(pyridinium)ethane/dibenzo[24]crown-8. Expand
Stepwise self-assembly of a discrete molecular honeycomb using a multitopic metallo-organic ligand.
TLDR
Self-assembly of a metallo-organic ligand, composed of an inner uncomplexed 120°-bis(terpyridine) and an outer extended free 120°, gave rise to a discrete planar supramolecular honeycomb patterned fractal. Expand
Palladium-templated subcomponent self-assembly of macrocycles, catenanes, and rotaxanes.
TLDR
The addition of pyridine-containing macrocyclic capping ligands allows for topological complexity to arise, thereby enabling the straightforward preparation of structures that include a [ 2]catenane, a [2]rotaxane, and a doubly threaded [3] rotaxane. Expand
Dynamics of mechanically bonded macrocycles in radial hetero[4]catenane isomers
Radial [4]catenane isomers in which the dynamics of the interlocked macrocycles are encoded by the covalent structure of the central macrocyclic backbone are described. Shuttling motion of theExpand
Endohedral dynamics of push-pull rotor-functionalized cages.
TLDR
The dynamic behaviour of the free ligands, assembled cages and host-guest complexes is compared with the aid of NMR experiments, X-ray structure analysis and molecular modelling. Expand
Self-assembly of [3]catenanes and a [4]molecular necklace based on a cryptand/paraquat recognition motif.
TLDR
The formation of two [3]catenanes and one [4]molecular necklace is presented by utilizing the orthogonality of coordination-driven self-assembly and crown ether-based cryptand/paraquat derivative complexation. Expand

TLDR
The use, in concert, of coordination, supramolecular, and dynamic covalent chemistry allowed the highly efficient construction, by multiple cooperative self-assembly processes, of a nanoscale dodecacation with an approximate diameter of 2.5 nanometers and an inner chamber of volume 250 Å3, lined with 12 oxygen atoms.
