Abstract

original image

Metal-containing tubes: The structures of several iron-containing C-methylpyrogallol[4]arene (PgC1) nanoassemblies were studied in both the solid and solution phases. The nanoassemblies have a tubular architecture with the iron as part of the framework (see picture; gray C, red O, turquoise/blue Fe), and magnetic analysis suggests a canted or spiral arrangement of the iron centers.
