Abstract

Instead of highly symmetrical T-symmetry cages common in self-assembly, the p-NMe2-substituted triphosphine CH3C{CH2P(4-C6H4NMe2)(3) gives open, polar C-3 symmetry cages [Ag-6(triphos)(4)X-3](3+) which lack one of the expected face-capping anions; despite its subtlety this difference occurs selectively in solution and two examples have been crystallographically characterised.
