A unique example of incorporation of a tetrahalometalate anion in a small supramolecular cage is described in which a tetrahedral cage of type [Fe4L6]8+ selectively encapsulates a [FeIIICl4]− anion over a [FeIICl4]2− anion in its central cavity to yield a discrete, mixed oxidation state, Fe(II)/Fe(III) supramolecular assembly. This unusual outcome has been achieved using two alternative synthetic strategies.
