Aqueous Recognition of Purine and Pyrimidine Bases by an Anthracene‒Based Macrocyclic Receptor

Abstract

A water-soluble bis-anthracenyl tetralactam binds biogenic heterocycles with high affinities in aqueous solution, rising to 10^7 M-1 for the purine hypoxanthine. Recognition occurs through a combination of hydrogen bonding and hydrophobic interactions, and results in fluorescence changes which suggest applications in sensing.
