Encapsulation and selectivity of sulfate with a furan-based hexaazamacrocyclic receptor in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

A furan-based hexaazamacrocycle encapsulates a sulfate anion in its cavity showing strong affinity and selectivity for sulfate in water over a wide range of inorganic anions. The DFT calculations demonstrate that the receptor provides binding sites as hydrogen bonding donors and electrostatic positive charges for the strong binding of sulfate.
