Size-selective encapsulation of C60 and C60-derivatives within an adaptable naphthalene-based tetragonal prismatic supramolecular nanocapsule

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel naphthalene-based 5·(BArF)8 capsule allows for the size-selective inclusion of C60 from fullerene mixtures. Its size selectivity towards C60 has been rationalized by its dynamic adaptability in solution that has been investigated by molecular dynamics. Additionally, 5·(BArF)8 encapsulates C60-derivatives such as C60-PCBM and N-methylpyrrolidine-C60. The latter can be separated from C60 since 5·(BArF)8 displays distinct affinity for them.
