A furan-based hexaazamacrocycle encapsulates a sulfate anion in its cavity showing strong affinity and selectivity for sulfate in water over a wide range of inorganic anions. The DFT calculations demonstrate that the receptor provides binding sites as hydrogen bonding donors and electrostatic positive charges for the strong binding of sulfate.
A new macrocycle-based dinuclear nickel chemosensor selectively binds oxalate anions both in solution and the solid state, displaying a remarkable red shift of the fluorescence band with a visible colour change in water at physiological pH in the presence of an external dye.
A novel dinuclear copper chemosensor selectively binds cyanide over a wide range of inorganic anions, enabling it to detect cyanide in water up to 0.02 ppm which is 10 times lower than the EPA standard for drinking water.
A p-xylyl-based macrocycle L has been synthesized and its binding properties with halides have been investigated by (1)H NMR titrations, single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. As investigated by (1)H NMR titrations, the ligand preferentially binds a halide in a 1:2 binding mode, with the association… (More)
In the title complex, [Ni(C21H17F2N3)2]2Br4·9H2O, there are two independent metal complexes per asymmetric unit and two ligands per metal complex. The structural features (bond lengths and angles) of the two complexes are almost identical. In each complex, the nickel(II) ion is coordinated in an octa-hedral environment by six N atoms from two chelating… (More)
Abstract: Although, a great deal of work has been done on simple anion binding, however, research of biologically important anions is still at its initial stage. During the course of our study, we have been interested to use our synthesized polyazamacrocyclic ligand for the binding of nucleotides. The neutral ligand has been converted to its dicopper… (More)
The cytotrophoblast (CTB) cells of the human placenta have membrane receptors that bind certain cardiotonic steroids (CTS) found in blood plasma. One of these, marinobufagenin, is a key factor in the etiology of preeclampsia. Herein, we used synthetic receptors (SR) to study their effectiveness on the angiogenic profile of human first trimester CTB cells.… (More)
