Inclusion compounds of binaphthol with picolines: structures, selectivity and kinetics of desolvation.

Abstract

The crystal structures of the inclusion compounds formed between the host 2,2'-dihydroxy-1,1'-binaphthyl and the three picoline isomers have been elucidated and their lattice energies calculated. The selectivities of enclathration by the host have been measured by competition experiments. The thermal stabilities and activation energies of desolvation of the compounds have been determined. The kinetics of desolvation are correlated to the structures.
