Locating the cyclopentano cousins of the cucurbit[n]uril family.


The synthesis of the first family of fully substituted cucurbit[n]uril is discussed, and the structural features of precursor glycolurils are highlighted in their importance to achieving higher homologues. The members of the family, where n = 5-7, have been fully characterized, and increased binding affinities have been identified for dioxane in CyP(6)Q[6… (More)
