Easily-prepared Hydroxy-containing Receptors Recognize Anions in Aqueous Media

Morshedi, Mahbod; Thomas, Michael; White, Nicholas; Boer, Stephanie


Despite their ready availability, O−H groups have received relatively little attention as anion recognition motifs. Here, we report two simple hydroxy‐containing anion receptors that are prepared in two facile steps followed by anion exchange, without the need for chromatographic purification at any stage. These receptors contain a pyridinium bis(amide) motif as well as hydroxyphenyl groups, and bind mono‐ and divalent anions in 9:1 CD3CN:D2O, showing a selectivity preference for sulfate....[Show more]
