  • (Chemical Equation Presented) Neither Doric, Ionic, nor Corinthian! (HgC6F4)3 interacts with 1,3,5-(Me 3SiC C)3C6H3 to form columns with peripheral trimethylsilyl groups. These columns self-aggregate into a hexagonal solid containing pores lined by nonpolar methyl groups (see picture; Hg orange, Si purple, C gray, F green, H white), which can adsorb alkanes reversibly. 2006 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
