Protective skin: Single-molecule magnets (SMMs) that are protected by two calixarenes have been synthesized (see picture: Mn purple, O red, N blue, C gray). The calixarene allows supramolecular isolation of the SMM, and alteration of its upper rim provides control over the orientation in the solid state by altering the distances between layers. © 2009 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
