Abstract

Stable hybrid systems are generated by the reaction of adamantane [Ge4Q10]4- (Q= S, Se) clusters with substitutionally labile [Fe4S4Cl4]2- clusters templated by cationic surfactant molecules. The resulting novel hexagonal mesophases have parallel pore tunnels (see schematic representation) with separations of ≈35 Å, which may find applications in shape-selective electro- and photocatalysis, artificial photosynthesis, and biosensors.
