2007_29/2007Solid-State Anion–Guest Encapsulation by Metallosupramolecular Capsules Made from Two Tetranuclear Copper(II) Complexes (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 29/2007)

The cover picture shows unique examples of homo- and heterochiral, dimeric metal capsules resulting from the self-assembly of two helical, bowl-shaped tetranuclear copper(II) complexes that encapsulate different anions in the solid state, like pearls in an oyster (shown as the background). This kind of self-assembled, coordination-bonded motifs are a major topic in metallosupramolecular chemistry because of their binding capabilities and associated host–guest chemistry. However, their magnetic properties are largely unexplored, and here we provide one of the rare magnetic studies on these host–guest systems. For more details on the combined structural and magnetic investigations of this class of synthetic “oyster” molecules, see the article by F. Lloret, Y. Journaux et al. on page 4569 ff.
