Using steric bulk for selective recognition; blocking the binding site to differentiate guests

Author affiliations

Abstract

Selectivity is demonstrated in a supramolecular host:guest system using a receptor with a non-linear binding site. For the “open” receptor 1 strong binding for both flexible and rigid guests was observed. Receptor 2, with a “blocked” binding site, also bound flexible guests effectively but its affinity for rigid guests was 50 fold lower.
