A phosphorescent cage of the form [Pd4Ru8]24+ is reported. The cage was formed using the metalloligand [Ru(dtbubpy)2(qpy)]2+, where qpy = 4,4’:2’,2’’:4’’,4’’’-quaterpyridine and dtbubpy = 4,4’- ditert-butyl-2,2’-bipyridine. The cage has been characterised by NMR, ESI-MS, TEM and X-ray diffraction analyses and its emission properties elucidated by steady-state and time-resolved emission spectroscopy.
