2006_17/2006Supramolecular Silanol Chemistry: Inclusion Complexes of 1,3,5-Tris(diisopropylhydroxysilyl)benzene and 4,4'-Bis(pyridines) (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 17/2006)

The cover picture shows the supramolecular structure of an inclusion complex between the trisilanol 1,3,5-(HOiPr2Si)3C6H3 and trans-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene (bpe). The trisilanol molecules are associated by SiO–H···O(H)Si hydrogen bonds, giving rise to the formation of 1D (horizontal) chains. The bpe molecules resemble pillars that are situated perpendicularly to the 1D chains and linked by SiO–H···N hydrogen bonds. The supramolecular motif is somewhat reminiscent of the Acropolis of Selinunte built 650 BC in Sicily, a masterpiece of classical Greek architecture. Details of synthesis and structures of supramolecular complexes between the trisilanol 1,3,5-(HOiPr2Si)3C6H3 and a number of 4,4'-bis(pyridine) compounds are described in the article by J. Beckmann and S. L. Jänicke on p. 3351 ff.
