A Rapid and Straightforward Supramolecular Self-Assembly Experiment to Prepare and Characterize a Triple Helicate Complex
This experiment prepares a large (Mr: 1821 g mol–1) triple helicate complex quickly in one pot from inexpensive starting materials. The protocol illustrates the power of self-assembly in a simple manner that is suitable for second-year general chemistry students using reversible imine bond and metal–ligand bond formation. Plastic molecular models and 1H NMR spectroscopy are used to elucidate the structure of the self-assembled product.
