Organometallic Nano-sized Capsule Consisting of cyclo-P5 Units and Cu(I) Ions

Welsch, Stefan ; Gröger, Christian ; Sierka, Marek ; Scheer, Manfred


A giant organometallic molecule and a 2D coordination polymer are formed by template-assisted self-assembly between CuCl and the cyclo-P5 complex [Cp*Fe(η5-P5)]. The giant capsular molecule exhibits a skeleton of 110 inorganic core atoms and consists of two half-shells with threefold symmetry. Dipersion forces between two encapsulated [Cp*Fe(η5-P5)] guest complexes and half-shells are responsible for the cohesion of the capsule (see structure and model; Cp*=η5-C5Me5).
