A pyrrole-containing cleft-type halogen bonding receptor for oxoanion recognition and sensing in aqueous solvent media

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthesis and anion binding properties of a novel pyrrole-containing dicationic halogen bonding (XB) motif is described. When incorporated into an acyclic cleft-type receptor, rare selectivity for tetrahedral oxoanions (H2PO4 and SO42−) over halides is observed in aqueous solvent media.
