Diastereoselectivity and molecular recognition in the self-assembly of double-stranded dinuclear metal complexes of the type {M 2 {( R *, S *)-tetraphos} 2 ] (PF 6 ) 2 (M = Ag and Au)

The ligand (R*,S*)-Ph2PCH2CH 2P(Ph)CH2CH2P(Ph)CH2CH 2PPh2, (R*,S*)-tetraphos, combines with silver(I) and gold(I) ions in the presence of hexafluorophosphate to diastereoselectively self-assemble the head-to-head (H,H) diastereomers of the double-stranded, dinuclear metal complexes [M2{(R*,S* )-tetraphos}2](PF6)2 in which the two chiral metal centers in the complexes have M (R end of phosphine) and P (S end of phosphine) configurations. The crystal and molecular structures of the compounds have...[Show more]
