Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) A stable environment: A [Cu-(NH 3)2]22+ dimer with weak cuprophilicity is stabilized in the cavities of a supramolecular framework (see structure). This CuI dimer is otherwise unstable, so stabilization within a supramolecular matrix offers an unprecedented opportunity for systematic studies of the isolated dimeric species, either in the ground state or the excited state.
