Thermally activated isomeric all-hydrocarbon molecular receptors for fullerene separation

Abstract

A new all-hydrocarbon macrocycle, cyclo[8](1,3-(4,6-dimethyl)benzene) (CDMB-8) has been reported. As prepared, it exists in Cs symmetry and shows no interaction with fullerenes (e.g., C60 or C70). High temperature (573 K) treatment induces thermal conversion of the material to an isomeric conformer with D4d symmetry as a receptor for fullerene separation.
