Solid-state hierarchical cyclodextrin-based supramolecular polymer constructed by primary, secondary, and tertiary azido interactions.

The crystallization of a di-azido-α-cyclodextrin revealed a polymeric self-assembly involving a variety of azido-type interactions. The crystal arrangement relies on the cooperativity of a primary azido inclusion, a secondary azido-azido interaction involving an unprecedented distribution of canonical forms, and a tertiary azido-groove interaction. The… CONTINUE READING
