Three-dimensionally dissymmetric cavities are created from an enantiopure amine and an achiral carboxylic acid, which can incorporate the third components to realize the formation of closely packed crystals. The combination demonstrates enantioselective inclusion for 20 kinds of racemic alcohols. The inclusion phenomenon occurs not only during… CONTINUE READING
