Chiral recognition of cinchona alkaloids at the minor and major grooves of 1,1'-binaphthyl receptors
A variety of chiral 1,1'-binaphthyl derivatives with one or two hydroxyl groups at either the 2,2'-(minor groove) or the 7,7'-positions (major groove) were prepared for enantioselective recognitionExpand

Quinoxaline excision: a novel approach to tri- and diquinoxaline cavitands.
[structure: see text] Selective excision of one or two quinoxaline units from tetraquinoxaline cavitand using catechol and base in DMF yields tri- and diquinoxaline cavitands in yields of up to 71%.

Hinged molecular capsules: synthesis and conformational control via temperature, pH, or solvent composition.
Three new covalently linked molecular capsules were synthesized from their resorcinarene cavitand precursors in good yields. The capsules undergo reversible conformational switching between theExpand

Optically active mono and bis(1,1′-binaphthyl)-cyclophanes: Large differences in the complexation of naproxen derivatives in aqueous solution
Abstract Four new optically active cyclophanes with apolar cavities shaped by the major grooves of the 2,2′, 6,6′- nd 2,2′, 7,7′-tetraoxa-1,1′-binaphthyl units were prepared for the inclusionExpand

A convenient synthesis of substituted polyether diols
Alkyl-substituted polyether diols (or polythioether diols), which are potential precursors to substituted crown ethers, are produced in high yield by the selective reductive cleavage of C−O bonds inExpand
