Abstract

Reaction of the bis-bidentate bridging ligand L1 with Co(ClO4)2 or Zn(BF4)2 affords a mixture of complexes [M8(L1)12]X16 and [M6(L1)9]X12 having the same metal : ligand ratio: the former is a molecular cube with a metal ion at each vertex and a bridging ligand spanning each edge, whereas the latter has a metal framework like that of an ‘open book’ containing cross-linked double helical metal–ligand subunits.
