Cooperative AND receptor for ion-pairs

Author affiliations


A novel heteroditopic calix[4]diquinone receptor capable of binding an anion and cation simultaneously in a cooperative fashion is shown only to recognise halide anions in the presence of a suitable cobound cationic guest species, and displays affinity for certain ion-pairs where no affinity for either of the free ions is observed.
