Polycationic oxacalix[4]arene 1·4HCl was found to be able to recognise, in water, the neutral π-rich aromatic guest 2,7-dihydroxynaphthalene, despite earlier studies indicating that the binding cleft of the oxacalixarene is π rich in nature. 1H NMR titrations at different pH values demonstrate that the tricationic receptor 1·3H+ displays the highest affinity towards DHN. According to a combination of NMR data and semiempirical (PM6) calculations, hydrophobic interactions play a prominent role in the formation of the complex.

Abstract

Polycationic oxacalix[4]arene 1·4HCl was found to be able to recognise, in water, the neutral π-rich aromatic guest 2,7-dihydroxynaphthalene, despite earlier studies indicating that the binding cleft of the oxacalixarene is π rich in nature. 1H NMR titrations at different pH values demonstrate that the tricationic receptor 1·3H+ displays the highest affinity towards DHN. According to a combination of NMR data and semiempirical (PM6) calculations, hydrophobic interactions play a prominent role in the formation of the complex.
