A ΛΛΛΛ-M 4L 6 tetrahedral manganese cage with a captured perchlorate or trifluoromethanesulfonate anion was synthesized using a chiral quaterpyridine; the captured anion is exchangeable and the removal of the captured ClO 4 - from the cage was studied by theoretical calculation. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
