A multicomponent reaction involving ethylenediaminepalladium(II), 2-pyrimidinol derivatives (L) [L = 2-pyrimidinol (a); 4-methyl-2-pyrimidinol (b); 4,6-dimethyl-2-pyrimidinol (c)] and 4,7-phenanthroline (4,7-phen) leads to the formation of heterotopic cyclic metallamacrocycles of the type [Pd n(en)n(μ-N,N′-L)m(μ-N,N′-4,7- phen)n-m](2n-m)- [n = 3, m = 1 (3); n = 4, m = 2 (4); n = 6, m = 4 (5)]. These species can be obtained by different reaction pathways, including: (i) reaction of ethylene diaminepalladium(II), L and 4,7-phen building blocks and (ii) reaction of the homotopic species [Pd 4(en)4(μ-N,N′-L)4]4+ (1) and [Pd3(en)3(μ,N,N′-4,7-phen)3] 6+ (2). The resulting heterotopic metallamacrocycles have been characterised by 1D and 2D 1H NMR spectroscopy. Additionally, species 3c and 4a have been studied by X-ray crystallography. The former one contains almost isosceles triangles of [Pd3(en)3(μ-N,N′-4, 6-dimethyl-2-pyrimidinolate)(μ-N,N′-4,7-phen)2] 5+ formulation, exhibiting a pinched-cone conformation. 4a contains a tetranuclear parallelogram [Pd4(en)4(μ-N,N′-2- pyrimidinolate)2(μ-N,N′-4,7-phenanthroline) 2]6+, exhibiting a 1,3-alternate conformation. The host-guest properties of the here reported species have been studied, showing that they are able to interact with cationic as well as with anionic species.
