Felix's Paper Highlighted on Inside Cover of Angewandte Chemie Int. Ed.
Felix's Paper entitled 'Peripheral Templation Generates an MII6L4 Guest-Binding Capsule' has been highlighted on the inside cover of Angewandte Chemie International Edition. Supramolecular templation usually employs tightly bound molecules that occupy a central cavity, but this paper reports how a template bound in fast exchange at the periphery of an assembly can also be used, as demonstrated by the generation of a pseudo-octahedral coordination cage that cannot be formed in the presence of centrally binding agents. This design principle allows a templated cage to participate in host-guest chemistry without removing the peripherally bound template.
