The assembly reaction arising from hydrogen bonding between a chiral C3 symmetric cobalt(III) complex and a tripod-ligand involving three imidazolate groups [tris[2-(((2-methylimidazolato-4-yl)methylidene)amino)ethyl]-amine]cobalt (III) and either hydroquinone or resorcinol gave the 1:3 adducts, with 3D extended structures showing the template effect of the complex.
