Abstract

A heterogeneous one-step self-assembly of Ag+, Tb3+, and thiacalix[4]arene (TCAS), of which the donor atoms S and O showed high selectivity toward Ag+ and Tb3+ ions, respectively, afforded a supramolecular cage compound, Ag+ Tb3+, at the center of which an octa-oxygen cube encapsulated the Tb3+ center to completely shield it from solvent molecules.
