Chemists have come far in using metal-assisted self-assembly of organic building blocks to construct molecules with three-dimensional architectures. For example, a team led by supramolecular chemistry specialists Pradyut Ghosh of the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science and Christoph A. Schalley of Free University of Berlin has been matching various metal salts with a multidentate ligand it developed that is made up of a 2,2'-bipyridine core . . .
