Abstract

Selective binding of a substrate to a molecular receptor system leads to the formation of a supramolecular entity by the process of molecular recognition.1 Organic macrocyclic compounds having binding sites suitable for noncovalent interactions are the key systems in supramolecular chemistry.1,2 It is envisaged that the metallamacrocyclic transition-metal complexes could be potential “inorganic analogues” of the organic macrocyclic receptor systems.3-5 The presence of metal ions in the metallamacrocyclic framework is expected to fine-tune the receptor capabilities of the available binding sites for noncovalent interactions with other molecular species. Recent reports have shown that a new class of complexes, viz. metallacrowns and metallacryptates, show novel physicochemical properties that are distinctly different from those of their organic analogues.4
