Palladium(II)-directed self-assembly of a neutral molecular triangle as a heteroditopic receptor for ion pairs.


A molecular triangle, based on the self-assembly of 4,7-phenanthroline by a neutral palladium complex, has been synthesized and characterized by a combination of techniques: (1)H NMR and UV-vis absorption spectroscopies, mass spectrometry, elemental analysis, and gel permeation chromatography. This new neutral metallocavitand has demonstrated the capacity… (More)
