Guest binding drives reversible atropisomerism in cavitand hosts
A novel class of cavitand bowl structures carrying rim substituents were developed that can reversibly switch from inwardly- to outwardly-directed orientations. It was found that a preference for either form can be established through purely physical means resulting in measuring relative solvent guest binding affinities without recourse to the hydrophobic effect. It was also found that the complementary fit of the ethyl and n-propyl substituents in the cavitand bowl not only affects the carrier...[Show more]
