- ... A suite of NMR techniques revealed that a cavitand (1) formed 2:1 host–guest complexes with a range of monounsaturated fatty carboxylates and their corresponding methyl esters. All of the carboxylates bound to the capsule in a J-shaped motif with the carboxylate at the equatorial region of the dimeric capsule, and the reverse turn of the chain and the methyl terminal in each polar region of the ho ...

- ... The intrinsic structural complexity of proteins makes it hard to identify the contributions of each noncovalent interaction behind the remarkable rate accelerations of enzymes. Coulombic forces are evidently primary, but despite developments in artificial nanoreactor design, a picture of the extent to which these can contribute has not been forthcoming. Here we report on two supramolecular capsule ...
