Abstract:
Squaramide-substituted calix[4]pyrrole 2 was synthesized and its anion-binding properties were investigated. On the basis of UV spectroscopy, 1H NMR spectroscopic and computational DFT model analyses, compared with the parent calix[4]pyrrole 1, compound 2 shows significantly enhanced binding affinities for anions in CH2Cl2, and it was concluded that this increase in affinity is ascribed to participation of the squaramide unit in anion binding.
