Downloads: Statistics Overview


A molecular cage encapsulating gold nanoparticles is presented. Six benzylic thioethers are pointing into its cavity, stabilizing the particles in a 1 : 1 ligand-to-particle-ratio in excellent yields. They are bench-stable for several months and can withstand unprecedented thermal stress of up to 130 °C, documenting the advantages of the cage-type stabilization over open-chain analogues.
