Nanometric ions, such as polyoxometalates (POMs) or ionic boron clusters, with low charge density have previously shown a strong propensity to bind to macrocycles and to adsorb to neutral surfaces: micellar, surfactant covered water-air and polymer surfaces. These association phenomena were shown to arise from a solvent-mediated effect called the (super-)chaotropic effect. We show here by ...
