Binding selectivity and separation of p-functionalized toluenes with a metallo-cavitand in water

Author affiliations

Abstract

A metallo-cavitand (1-2Pd) showed unprecedented binding selectivity and sequestration of p-functionalized toluene isomers in water. The host–guest complexation was studied using 1H and COSY NMR methods and xylene-isomer complexes were examined by using DFT calculations. A liquid–liquid extraction scheme was developed for the separation of p-functionalized toluenes.
