Two sulfur-containing hybrid calix[4]pyrrole derivatives (III and IV) have been synthesized and fully characterized. Several analytical techniques (1H NMR, conductance measurements, UV-vis spectrophotometry, titration potentiometry, and titration calorimetry) have been used to assess the interaction between these hybrid calixpyrrole receptors and metal(More)
A modified calix[4]pyrrole, namely meso-tetramethyl-tetrakis-(4-hydroxyphenyl) calix[4]pyrrole, 1, has been synthesized and characterized. (1)H NMR investigations in various deuterated solvents seems to indicate that this receptor interacts with acetone-d(6). The solution thermodynamics of 1 in various solvents is reported. Complexation studies in CD(3)CN(More)
The solution behavior of ethyl p-tert-butylcalix[5]arene pentanoate, EtCalix(5), in various protic and aprotic solvents has been assessed from the standard Gibbs energies of transfer of this ligand from acetonitrile to other solvents. These data were derived from solubility measurements of EtCalix(5) in different media. It is concluded that in solvents in(More)
Although extensive research has been carried on anion complexation reactions involving calix[4]pyrrole, nothing has been reported regarding this receptor and its interaction with arsenic species. The fact that a single step reaction is required for the synthesis of this receptor, calls upon the need to explore its removal ability for these species from(More)
A calix[4]pyrrole derivative, namely, meso-tetramethyl tetrakis (4-phenoxy methyl ketone) calix[4]pyrrole, 1, was synthesized and structurally (1H NMR) and thermodynamically characterized. The complexing properties of this receptor with a wide variety of anions and cations in dipolar aprotic media (acetonitrile, propylene carbonate, and dimethyl sulfoxide)(More)
Materials used in current technological approaches for the removal of mercury lack selectivity. Given that this is one of the main features of supramolecular chemistry, receptors based on calix[4]arene and calix[4]resorcarene containing functional groups able to interact selectively with polluting ions while discriminating against biologically essential(More)
A thermodynamic study involving 7-nitro-1,3,5-triaza adamantane, 1, and its interaction with metal cations in nonaqueous media is first reported. Solubility data of 1 in various solvents were used to derive the standard Gibbs energies of solution, DeltaG(s)o in these solvents. The effect of solvation in the different media was assessed from the Gibbs energy(More)
The interaction of lower rim calix(4)arene derivatives containing ester (1) and ketone (2) functional groups and bivalent (alkaline-earth, transition- and heavy-metal) cations has been investigated in various solvents (methanol, N,N-dimethylformamide, acetonitrile, and benzonitrile). Thus, 1H NMR studies in CD3OD, C3D7NO, and CD3CN show that the interaction(More)
