Hydrogen bonding effects in anion binding calixarenes.

Qureshi, N. and Yufit, D. D. and Steed, K. M. and Howard, J. A. K. and Steed, J. W. (2014) 'Hydrogen bonding effects in anion binding calixarenes.', CrystEngComm., 16 (36). pp. 8413-8420.


A series of disubstituted urea, thiourea and dansyl amide calix[4]arene based anion receptors have been prepared and characterised by X-ray crystallography. The structures show a fine balance of intramolecular urea α-tape, and ureacalixarene phenolic oxygen atom hydrogen bonding patterns. Both motifs are in competition with the anion binding behaviour of the compounds in solution.
