Hemicryptophane, a covalent molecular capsule that is composed of a cyclotriveratrylene (CTV) host unit, a tris(2-aminoethyl)amine (tren) ligand, and three rigid phenyl spacers, is a useful ligand for preparing synthetic transition metal complexes containing well-defined cavities that mimic the active sites of metalloenzymes. A method for the selective oxidation of primary alcohols using 5 mol % hemicryptophane-ruthenium(II)...
