Read Leonard Lindoy’s latest supramolecular host-guest formation research in this Dalton Transactions Hot article.
Lindoy’s group make helicates and tetrahedral Ni and Fe host complexes from quaterpyridine ligand derivatives, and look how they can control which products they get. They are particularly interested in the cavity volumes of the tetrahedral cages they make, and hope in the future to look at the host-guest chemistry of the cages with the largest cavities.
