Expeditious synthesis of bis-β-cyclodextrinyl-diazacrown-[2]cryptorotaxanes

Author affiliations


An efficient synthesis of original bis-β-cyclodextrin-[2]cryptorotaxanes in moderate to high yields is described. A synthetic approach based on the template-directed self-assembly threading process in aqueous medium gives a structure stabilized exclusively through non-covalent interactions. This procedure reveals a simple and efficient way to prepare highly organized supramolecular receptors from carefully designed subunits.
