Solution phase and solid state studies of lanthanoid-calixarene bottlebrush clusters
MetadataShow full item record
The conditions required for formation of unusual bottlebrush-shaped lanthanoid coordination clusters were investigated. The known clusters are supported by tetrazole-functionalised p-t-butylcalixarenes, and carboxylate co-ligands. It was confirmed that the lighter lanthanoids form mononuclear complexes, and heavier lanthanoids form bottlebrush clusters. Changing the carboxylate co-ligand had little impact on the complexes formed. Altering the structure of the calixarene had a significant impact. When the t-butyl group was replaced with hydrogen or allyl groups, mononuclear complexes formed.

Lanthanoid “Bottlebrush” Clusters: Remarkably Elongated Metal-Oxo Core Structures with Controllable LengthsD'Alessio, Daniel; Sobolev, A.; Skelton, B.; Fuller, R.; Woodward, R.; Lengkeek, N.; Fraser, B.; Massi, Massimiliano; Ogden, Mark (2014)Large metal-oxo clusters consistently assume spherical or regular polyhedral morphologies rather than high-aspect-ratio structures. Access to elongated core structures has now been achieved by the reaction of lanthanoid ...
