51_11i/2012Inside Cover: Stacked Platinum Complexes of the Magnus’ Salt Type Inside a Coordination Cage (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 11/2012)

Supramolecular coordination polymers based on stacked square-planar PtII complexes, such as Magnus' Salts, show potential as functional materials. In their Communication on page 2606 ff. G. H. Clever, M. Shionoya, and co-workers describe a linear array of five alternately stacked PtII complexes in the form of a soluble host–guest complex. The X-ray structure of {[Pt(pyridine)4]·[PtCl4]2@cage} shows the linear, pentanuclear array within the cages and their circular packing into a hollow tubular superstructure.
