Isophthalamides and 2,6-dicarboxamidopyridines with pendant indole groups: a ‘twisted’ binding mode for selective fluoride recognition

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two cleft-like anion receptors have been synthesised that contain indole hydrogen-bond donors and show fluoride selectively in a DMSOwater solution with crystallographic studies showing a ‘twisted’ binding mode for fluoride in the solid state.
