Calix[4]arene transition metal and crown ether based anion and ion-pair receptors

Abstract:

The aim of this thesis is to develop novel receptors for the recognition of anions and ion-pairs. The guest binding and sensing properties of the receptors are studied by spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques. The ion-pair receptors described herein incorporate amide or urea functionalities for anion binding and crown ether moieties for alkali metal cation complexation. In addition, many receptors contain redox- and/or photo-active groups capable of sensing guest binding events.
