A nano-sized container for specific encapsulation of isolated water molecules

Author affiliations

Abstract

A calix[4]arene-based molecular box was synthesized. Its properties were characterized through XRD and extensive NMR studies. This receptor is able to encapsulate specifically two isolated water molecules in both non-protic and protic solvents. This is a consequence of high size, geometric and electronic complementarity between the host and the water molecules.
