Frontispiece: Self-Assembly through Noncovalent Preorganization of Reactants: Explaining the Formation of a Polyfluoroxometalate
Ronny Neumann, Roy E. Schreiber, Liat Avram
Self-assembly processes from simple compounds to complicated but thermodynamically stable products are hard to predict and difficult to explain by classical kinetic theory. By following the self-assembly formation process of a polyfluoroxometalate containing 18 tungsten atoms from monomeric starting materials by NMR and mass spectroscopy, in their Full Paper on page 369 ff., R. Neumann and colleagues explain product formation by pre-organization of the reactants in a dense phase where reactivity can be fitted to a deterministic kinetic model.
