In flagrante metallo-cyclophane self-assembly?

Version 2
Visibility: Open to anyone

    Abstract: The dimeric self-assembly of an alkyl-substituted pyrazine–pyridine hybrid ligand with copper(I) initially affords its sterically congested, C2-symmetric stereoisomer, which then undergoes partial isomerisation to a dynamic mixture containing the less crowded meso-configured diastereomer.
