Picturing the induced fit of calix[5]arenes upon n-alkylammonium cation binding

Author affiliations

Abstract

The serendipitous crystallization of a 1 : 1 endo-cavity complex between calix[5]arene penta-ester 1a and n-butylammonium ions sheds light on the conformational rearrangement—from cone-in to cone-out—this calixarene family undergoes upon guest inclusion.
