Abstract

(matrix presented) Novel self-assembled molecular capsules were constructed from two moles of pyridine-containing porphyrin derivatives and four moles of Pd(II) complexes utilizing a pyridine-Pd(II) interaction. The 1H NMR spectral studies established that these self-assembled molecular capsules 5 and 6 have a highly symmetrical D4h structure as well as a large inside cavity. It was shown that molecular capsule 6 can include a large bipyridine guest by a two-point simultaneous pyridine-Zn(II) interaction.
