Title: The remarkable influence of N, O-ligands in the assembly of a bis-calix[4]arene-supported [Mn IV 2Mn III 10Mn II 8] cluster

Abstract

We report that calix[4]arenes are versatile ligands, capable of supporting the formation of a wide variety of polymetallic clusters comprising 3 d, 4 f or 3 d-4 f metal ions. Calixarene-based metal ion fragments act as both bridging and structure capping moieties in these systems, and this behaviour is systematically extended upon moving to bis-calix[4]arene, a relatively new ligand in which two calix[4]arenes are tethered at the methylene bridge position. N,O-Ligands greatly influence cluster formation with bis-calix[4]arene, affording a remarkable mixed-valence [Mn IV 2Mn III 10Mn II 8] cluster that displays coordination chemistry typical of each ligand type, but also new structure capping behaviour for the latter.
