endo-Functionalized molecular tubes: selective encapsulation of neutral molecules in non-polar media

Author affiliations

Abstract

Four endo-functionalized molecular tubes with urea/thiourea groups in the deep cavities have been synthesized, and their binding ability to neutral molecules studied. Very high binding affinity and selectivity have been achieved, which are rationalized by invoking the shape and electrostatic complementarity and dipole alignment.
