    Cationic tetranuclear arene ruthenium complexes of the general formula [Ru4(p-cymene)4(NN)2(dhnq)2]4+ comprising rectangular structures are obtained in methanol from the reaction of the dinuclear arene ruthenium precursor [Ru2(p-cymene)2(dhnq)2Cl2] (dhnq = 5,8-dihydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinonato) with pyrazine or bipyridine linkers [NN = pyrazine, 1; 4,4-bipyridine, 2; 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene, 3] in the presence of AgCF3SO3. All complexes 1-3, isolated in good yield as triflate salts, have been characterised by NMR and IR spectroscopy. The interaction of these rectangular complexes with pyrene as a guest molecule has been studied in solution by various NMR techniques (1D, DOSY, ROESY). In [D3]acetonitrile, the pyrazine-containing metalla-rectangle 1 shows no meaningful interactions with pyrene. On the other hand, the 4,4-bipyridine- and 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene-containing metalla-rectangles 2 and 3 clearly interact with pyrene in [D3]acetonitrile. DOSY measurements suggest that, in the case of [Ru4p-cymene)4(4,4-bipyridine)2(dhnq)2]4+ (2), the interactions occur on the outside of the rectangular assembly, while in the case of [Ru4(p-cymene)4{1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene}2 (dhnq)2]4+ (3), the pyrene molecule is found inside the hydrophobic cavity of the metalla-rectangle, thus giving rise to a host-guest system.

    Permanent Encapsulation or Host–Guest Behavior of Aromatic Molecules in Hexanuclear Arene Ruthenium Prisms
    Cationic arene ruthenium metallaprisms of the general formula [Ru6(p-cymene)6(tpt)2(OOOO)3]6+ {tpt = 2,4,6-tris(4-pyridyl)-1,3,5-triazine; OOOO = 9,10-dioxo-9,10-dihydroanthracene-1,4-diolato [1]6+, 6,11-dioxo-6,11-dihydronaphthacene-5,12-diolato [2]6+} have been obtained from the corresponding dinuclear arene ruthenium complexes [Ru2(p-cymene)2(OOOO)Cl2] by reaction with tpt and silver trifluoromethanesulfonate. Aromatic molecules (phenanthrene, pyrene, triphenylene, coronene) present during the synthesis of these metallaprisms are permanently encapsulated to give carceplex systems. All empty cages ([1]6+ and [2]6+) and carceplex systems ([guest⊂1]6+ and [guest⊂2]6+) were isolated in good yield as trifluoromethanesulfonate salts and characterized by NMR, UV, and IR spectroscopy. The host–guest properties of [1]6+ and [2]6+ were studied in solution in the presence of small aromatic molecules (phenanthrene andpyrene). The stability constant of association (Ka) wasestimated by NMR spectroscopy for the following host–guest systems: [phenanthrene⊂1]6+, [pyrene⊂1]6+ and [phenanthrene⊂2]6+, [pyrene⊂2]6+. All Ka values were found to be larger than 2.0 × 104M–1 for these host–guest systems ([D3]acetonitrile, 21 °C).
