Ruthenium cryptates with an unusual selectivity for nitrate.


The synthesis of two new tripodal complexes [Ru(L3)](PF(6))(2) and [Ru(L4)](PF(6))(2), encapsulating a ruthenium(II) cation, has been successfully achieved and the products fully characterized, including by X-ray structural determination. The smaller cavity, built around a tris(2-aminoethyl)amido scaffold demonstrated only moderate and predictable… (More)
