The synthesis of the three isomeric tris(pyridylmethylamino)cyclotriguaiacylene cavitands is reported, along with the crystal structures of the 2- and 4-pyridyl derivatives. The generality of a previously described [Ag(2){tris(3-pyridylmethylamino)cyclotriguaiacylene}(2)](2+) dimeric capsule motif and the [Ag(4){tris(4-pyridylmethylamino)cyclotriguaiacylene}(4)](4+) tetrahedron with several silver salts was confirmed in the solid state and the corresponding solution species were investigated by… CONTINUE READING
