Chem. Front. 1 (6), 487-494
A family of exceptionally thermally stable [Ni-8] cages is reported, each being templated by a rare eta(3):eta(3):mu(6)-O-2(2-) species produced by dioxygen activation, where the reducing agent for the O-2 reduction appears to be the ligand used in the reaction mixtures, which was found within the nickel cages in its oxidized form.
