The creation of isolated chirotopic environments that mimic enzyme binding pockets has been a long-term goal in supramolecular chemistry. Metal–organic cages with enclosed and defined inner spaces have proven useful for this purpose. Here, we provide a review of recent progress on understanding, and controlling the transmission of stereochemistry within [M4(L)6] and [M4(L)4] tetrahedral cages.
