Molecular recognition of carbohydrates by artificial receptors: systematic studies towards recognition motifs for carbohydrates.


The synthesis and binding properties for carbohydrates of several artificial, acyclic receptors containing two or three heterocyclic recognition units covalently attached to a phenyl spacer is described. These host molecules having uncharged hydrogen-bonding sites were used in a systematic study towards the evaluation of recognition motifs for carbohydrates… (More)
