Abstract

A method that utilizes the "weak-link synthetic approach" to binuclear macrocycles and a hemilabile ligand derived from Wurster's reagent (N,N,N′,N′-tetramethyl-1,4-phenylenediamine (TMPD)) to prepare a new class of redox-active binuclear macrocycles is reported. This novel system provides a new platform for preparing a diverse collection of redox-active supramolecular structures with tailorable architectural parameters.
