Final Report - CACOPHOS (Cage Complexes With Phosphonates)

Project ID: 220035
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


The proposal is to learn to use polymetallic cage complexes as building blocks for larger zero-dimensional nano-objects. As outlined in their periodic report, which includes images, Dr Kandasamy has shown that very simple metal precursors can be used in the reactions with phosphonates, for example b-diketonates. These serve to block sites on the metal ions present and hence control the symmetry and stoichiometry of the products. The approach looks extremely promising as a method for producing high symmetry compact cages by design.
