Abstract

(Figure Presented) Control over molecule conformation and transition metal cluster formation has been combined to afford metal-organic calixarene building blocks that induce nanotube formation in the solid state. The resulting assembly type can have chosen magnetic properties, and has three types of solvent filled channel that differ in diameter and shape (see picture). © 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
