Bent alkanes in a new thiourea-containing capsule.


The synthesis of a cavitand featuring thiourea hydrogen bonding sites and its dimerization in the presence of suitable guests are reported. Dimerization creates a capsule host wider than the corresponding urea or imide structures, and longer alkanes can be accommodated. Specifically, n-C(15)H(32) is encapsulated, but this guest appears folded inside as… (More)
