Synthesis and Properties of Conformationally Restricted Cavitand Systems

Scott, Michael P


The work described in this thesis is focused on the synthesis, functionalisation and study of conformationally restricted cavitand systems. Cavitands are rigid molecules with a concave π-basic surface, which bind a variety of guests. Larger supramolecular systems have been synthesised by covalently connecting several cavitands together. Two such multi-cavitand arrays are presented in this thesis, namely superbowls and cyclotetra-cavitands. Chapter...[Show more]
