Triggering Assembly and Disassembly of a Supramolecular Cage

Triggering Assembly and Disassembly of a Supramolecular Cage
Francesca A. Scaramuzzo, Giulia Licini, Cristiano Zonta, Carlo Bravin, Elena Badetti
A novel supramolecular cage built from the self-assembly of tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine zinc complexes through imine condensation chemistry is reported. The cage recognition properties over a variety of structurally related guests, together with the kinetic study of the template assembly and disassembly, have been investigated in detail. This knowledge has been used to selectively modulate the rate of both assembly and disassembly processes. In particular, a novel disassembly method induced by strain release of the guest has been developed.
