The structural features most conducive to complexation of the alkali metal ions Li(+), Na(+), and K(+) in a series of constrained inositol orthoformate derivatives have been probed in solution, in the solid state, and in the gas phase by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. The eight spirotricyclic polyethers differ in the size of the rings containing… CONTINUE READING
