Maltodextrin recognition by a macrocyclic synthetic lectin

Author affiliations

Abstract

A monocyclic “temple” synthetic lectin, with extended electron-rich aromatic surfaces, shows enhanced affinities for carbohydrates in water. The methoxy substituents favour binding to α-linked maltodextrins, against the all-equatorial substrates normally favoured by this family of receptors.
