Nitrate anion templated synthesis of a [2]catenane for nitrate recognition in organic–aqueous solvent media

Author affiliations

Abstract

The first example of a catenane synthesised using a nitrate anion template is demonstrated. Removal of the templating anion reveals a mechanically interlocked molecular host system which is capable of recognising nitrate selectively over a range of more basic mono-anionic oxoanions in a competitive organic–aqueous solvent mixture.
