Rational Design of Tightly Closed Coordination Tetrahedra that are Stable in the Solid State, in Solution, and in the Gas Phase

I. Müller, D. Möller, C. A. Schalley— 2004

No way out: Small guest cations, such as [Et4N]+ template the formation of stable and tightly closed octaanionic metallosupramolecular tetrahedra (see picture). Since [Et3NH]+ is co-encapsulated with exactly one water molecule, the filling of space seems to be a more pivotal factor for the templation than the symmetry of the cation. X-ray crystallography excellently agrees with NMR spectroscopy and ESI-FT-ICR mass spectrometry data.
