The structural chemistry of isophthalamide anion complexes, ortho-phenylenediamine based bis-ureas, and amidopyrroles, as well as anion-triggered deprotonation processes in neutral anion receptor systems, are discussed.
Structure–Activity Relationships in Tripodal Transmembrane Anion Transporters: The Effect of Fluorination
Calculations indicate that increasing the degree of fluorination of the tripodal transmembrane transporters increases the lipophilicity of the transporter and this is shown to be the major contributing factor in the superior transport activity of the fluorinated compounds.
Mechanisms of electrochemical recognition of cations, anions and neutral guest species by redox-active receptor molecules
Abstract This short review highlights the mechanisms involved in electrochemically sensing cationic, anionic and neutral guest species by redox-active receptors and is an update to a previously
Fluoride-selective binding in a new deep cavity calix[4]pyrrole: experiment and theory.
Structural evidence demonstrates that the adaptive umbrella WHAM protocol explores a wider conformational range than free energy perturbation and should therefore be the method of choice in binding free energy calculations, and its efficiency was found to be approximately two times more efficient.
Anion Recognition and Sensing: The State of the Art and Future Perspectives.
Anion recognition chemistry has grown from its beginnings with positively charged ammonium cryptand receptors for halide binding to a plethora of charged and neutral, cyclic and acyclic, inorganic and organic supramolecular host systems for the selective complexation, detection, and separation of anionic guest species.
