A para-substituted phenylazomethine dendrimer (pGnA) coordinates to Lewis acids in a stepwise radial fashion from the inner layer to the outer layer. The inversion of this coordination sequence was achieved for the first time by just changing the substitution position of the phenylazomethine group from the para position to the meta position (mGnA).
