Masson: Building Blocks Self-assemble into Polymers with Help of Pumpkin-shaped Molecule

The self-assembly into dynamic oligomers of Cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]), a positive ditopic Ir(III) bis-terpyridine complex, and a negative ditopic Fe(II) bis-terpyridine complex flanked by four butyrate side chains.

Dr. Eric Masson and his research group recently showed that Cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]), a molecule that resembles a hollow pumpkin, can be used to connect building blocks to one another in a well-defined sequence. Masson, the Roenigk Chair and Associate Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Ohio University, took inspiration from […]

Masson Group Shows Pumpkin-shaped Molecules Catalyze Classic Reaction

Eric Masson studies pumpkin-shaped Cucurbituril molecules

The groups of Dr. Eric Masson and Dr. Oren Scherman, a collaborator from the University of Cambridge, UK, recently showed that Cucurbiturils, a family of molecules that have the shape of a hollow pumpkin, could be used as catalysts for a well-known reaction in organic chemistry. By encapsulating reagents, Cucurbiturils force the reacting partners […]
