Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
We synthesized a double-walled knotted cage from a flexible tripodal ligand. The characteristic double-walled structure provided a unique adaptive behavior of the cavity upon inclusion of organic molecules, which was evidenced by NMR and X-ray measurements. The semiflexible host framework, restricted by the knotted topology, enabled kinetic molecular recognition revealing the sequential binding of two different guests from their mixture.
