Three-State, Conformational Probe for Hydrophobic, π-Stacking Interactions in Aqueous and Mixed Aqueous Solvent Systems: Anisotropic Solvation of Aromatic Rings

Abstract

The conformational equilibrium of R,R′-m-xylylene-N,N′-bis-2-phenylpyridinium (1a) is analyzed as a three-state system and is herein proposed as a minimalist conformational probe to assay the stability of hydrophobic aromatic clusters in aqueous and mixed aqueous solvents. VT NMR spectrometry and computation elucidate the dynamic behavior of the… (More)
