Lithium cation enhances anion binding in a tripodal phosphine oxide-based ditopic receptor

Author affiliations

Abstract

A tripodal ditopic receptor presents H-bond donors and a phosphine oxide to potential guests. In the idealized binding conformation, an endohedral P[double bond, length as m-dash]O functionality provides enhanced halide binding in the presence of lithium with the greatest ΔΔG° observed for bromide, while minimal changes in Ka are observed in the presence of sodium.
