Abstract

M8L12 cubic cages (M = MnII, ZnII or CdII), with all eight metal ions having all facial Δ or facial Λ configurations and having an encapsulated anion, were prepared by the self-assembly of m-xylene-bridged imidazolyl-imine ligands and MX2 (X = PF6 -, SbF6 -, TfO-) salts; the encapsulated anion exchange with different anions (SbF6 -, Tf2N-, NO3 -, TsO-) was studied and the results with NO3 - and TsO- indicate that anions on the cage surfaces affect the encapsulated anion exchange and the occupancy of the cage.
