Abstract

Metal ions or ion pairs (silver nitrate shown) are transported to the interior of metal-organic pyrogallol[4]arene nanocapsules via aqueous gates. This transport has been studied by Xray crystallography and shows the affinity of the ions to reside deep in the polyaromatic regions of the assemblies. Copyright © 2008 American Chemical Society.
