A One-Pot, High-Yield Synthesis of a Paramagnetic Nickel Square from Divergent Precursors by Anion Template Assembly. Academic Article uri icon


  • A paramagnetic Ni-containing molecular square has been synthesized in high yield from divergent precursors. An X-ray structure (shown in the picture) reveals the presence of an encapsulated tetrafluoroborate anion, which appears to be a requisite condition for the formation of the cyclic oligomer.
