Coordination-driven self-assembly methodology has been extensively used to construct bi- or tri-dimensional discrete architectures that are generally achiral and highly symmetric. New synthetic methodologies are therefore being developed to afford chiral metalla-assembled architectures, and one of the strategies consists in thermodynamically controlling the self-sorting of multiple building blocks. In particular, chiral self-sorting can be spontaneously achieved from a racemic mixture upon metal coordination. In this work, we describe the construction of two chiral face-rotating metalla-assembled polyhedra upon self-assembly of an achiral truxene-based ligand and hydroxyquinonato diruthenium complexes. The self-sorting process leading to only two homochiral enantiomers (CC and AA) is governed by noncovalent interactions between both truxene units facing each other. View this paper.
