Numerous metalla-supramolecular architectures have been designed using coordination-driven self-assembly, while the number of analogous organic architectures is still very limited. In this regard, mainly di-, tri- and a few tetra-aldehydes have been exploited as precursors in combination with appropriate di-/tri-amines to obtain the desired structures with limited complexities. We report here facile synthesis of two face-directed tetrahedral organic cages (TC-R and TC-S) that were formed by [4+12] imine condensation of a new hexa-aldehyde precursor with two enantiomers of 1,2-diaminocyclohexane separately (CA-R and CA-S). The covalent imine cages are very large with an intrinsic porous cavity of ∼1250 Å3 and the faces of the cages consist of aromatic aldehyde units whereas each corner is occupied by three semi-flexible diamine moieties. Palladium (PdNPs) nanoparticles (3.5±0.3 nm) were synthesized employing the cage TC-R as a solid support via double-solvent approach. Furthermore, the cage hosted PdNPs [Pd(0)@TC-R-A] exhibited efficient catalytic activity for selective homocoupling of aryl- and hetero-aryl halides with high thermal stability and reusability.
