Binding of phosphate with a simple hexaaza polyammonium macrocycle.

A mixture of dihydrogen phosphate and phosphoric acid has been crystallized with a hexaprotonated 26-membered polyammonium macrocycle, 1,4,7,14,17,20-hexaazacyclohexacosane, as the counterion. The complex crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P2(1)/c with unit cell parameters of a = 10.006(2) A, b = 12.525(1) A, c = 19.210(2) A, beta = 102.91(1… CONTINUE READING
