Self-assembly of trigonal-prismatic metallocages encapsulating BF4- or CuI32- as anionic guests: Structures and mechanism of formation

Angewandte Chemie, International Edition 41 (18): 3371--3375 (2002)

Thermodynamically stable, but kinetically labile trigonal-prismatic M3L2 metallocages occur in BF4 $\subset$ Ag3(MsTBim)2(BF4)2 (1) and CuI3 ⊂ Cu3(MsTBim)22(Cu2I4) (2), the latter with an unprecedented metal-complex-host/metal-complex-guest arrangement. Large anions such as CF3SO3- or BPh4- have to reside outside the cage facing its windows. MsTBim = 1,3,5-tris-(benzimidazol-1-ylmethyl)-2,4,6-trimethylbenzene. on SciFinder(R)
