Benzimidazole-based anion receptors exhibiting selectivity for lactate over pyruvate

Author affiliations

Abstract

The influence of anions on tautomerism in benzimidazole containing anion receptors has been studied via a variety of techniques in both solution and the solid state. The results show that hydrogen bonding interactions between the receptors and guests have a significant effect of the nature of the tautomer present. The compounds show a preference for complexation of lactate over pyruvate.
