In this Dalton Transactions Hot article Colin Raston and collaborators from the University of Western Australia and the University of Malaya look at CoIII sarcophagine-type cage molecules.
They do both a solid state and solution study of how [Co(diCLsar)]3+ and [Co(HONOsar)]3+, form host–guest inclusion complexes with calixarenes.
As Professor Raston served on the advisory board, this work will be included in the 40th Anniversary volume of Dalton Transactions, celebrating the journals history.
