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)
The importance of detailed thermodynamic studies in assessing the selective behaviour of macrocyclic receptors for one species relative to another in a given solvent and the medium effect on complexation processes involving ionic species are emphasised. Factors to be considered in the determination of thermodynamic parameters of complexation in non-aqueous(More)
