New Star of David Molecule

Here's an Email I got today:
Dear Zeevveez,

I am a synthetic chemist - not jewish - but I hope you will enjoy the structure of a molecule we have just published that has the Star of David shape and topology:

We discuss the work on my groups webpage:

and you will see we have included a link to your webpage when we discuss the Star of David in its many forms (and there is also a note about the link between Chemistry at Manchester and Weizmann).  I found your webpage very useful for finding images of the Star of David in different contexts to illustrate my lectures featuring this molecule, so thanks for that!

Best wishes,

Dave Leigh
