A cobalt cluster-based triple-stranded helicate, Co8(PDA)6(PTA)3(DMF)3(H2O)3 (1) (PDA = 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylate, PTA = benzene-1,3-dicarboxylate, DMF = dimethylformamide) was successfully synthesized and fully characterized. Complex 1 can be used as a supramolecular building block in constructing a higher-order helix-of-helix structure, [Co8(PDA)6(PTA)3(DMF)2(H2O)4-0.51(Co(OHn)2)] (n = 1 or 2) (2).
