Control by encapsulation: A dimeric capsule assembled from a tripodal host by van der Waals forces can stabilize a series of reactive molecules, such as cyclopentadiene and trichlorosilane, in the crystalline state even under relatively harsh conditions. Moreover, these reactive molecules can be controllably released into liquid media for further chemical reaction by thermal programming, leaving the insoluble host molecules behind for easy separation and reuse (see scheme).
