Hot Article: Triazamacrocycles templated on iron

Peter G. Edwards and colleagues from Cardiff University and the University of Southampton investigate P3 and As3 macrocycles on an iron template in this Dalton Transactions Hot article.

The authors look at 9-membered triphospha- and triarsamacrocycles with unsaturated benzo-backbones that they make using a [CpRFe]+ template.

The complexes from an interesting ‘cup-shaped’ cavity, which could potentially accommodate anions.
