The coordination-driven self-assembly of two new Ru-6-Pt-6 hexanuclear trigonal prismatic cages comprising arene-ruthenium(II) clips (1a(NO3)(2) and 1b(NO3)(2)) and a tritopic platinum(II) metalloligand 2 has been performed in methanol at room temperature. The 3 + 2] hexanuclear cages 3a and 3b were isolated in good yields and characterized by well-known spectroscopic techniques including multinuclear NMR, mass spectrometry, UV-vis and infrared studies. Geometry optimization revealed the shapes and sizes of these hexanuclear prismatic cages. The combination of ruthenium and platinum metal center in a one-pot self-assembly reaction showcases the construction of aesthetically elegant heterometallic structures in supramolecular chemistry leading to the formation of a single major product.
