An ONIOM investigation on anion recognition of alkali-metal complexes with diurea calix[4]arene receptor.


The ONIOM(B3LYP/6-31G(d):AM1) optimized structures of complexes of diurea calix[4]arene receptor (L) with alkali metals Li(+), Na(+) and K(+) and their complexes with halide ions F(-), Cl(-), Br(-), oxygen-containing anions HCO(3)(-), HSO(4)(-) and CH(3)COO(-) ions were obtained. Binding energies and thermodynamic properties of complex receptors LiL(+), NaL… (More)
