Caught by the cage: New vanadium phosphonate cages with a fluoride template inside and charge-compensating transition-metal cations outside were prepared in a simple way. The charge and ligand sphere of the cation govern its interaction with the cage and can be used to modify the magnetic and redox properties of the cage, which also depend on the anionic template (see figure).
