Synthetic routes to four new tridentate ligands with large cavities have been developed. Each ligand features two halides at the termini of the molecules that could be used for further elaboration of the system. Such compounds are ideal for encapsulating organoiodide guests using charge-transfer interactions. View Full-Text
