Through the weak link approach and a halideinduced ligand rearrangement process, semi-open and condensed triple-decker complexes (TDCs) were prepared and fully characterized. These triple-decker structures with tailorable layers through choice of hemilabile ligand starting materials can be chemically opened and closed to expose the interior layer in a reversible fashion using small-molecule and elemental anion ligand substitution reactions.
