Tripodal molecules for the promotion of phosphoester hydrolysis.


A series of low molecular weight tripodal amide/histidine-containing compounds (1-2) have been synthesised and shown to increase the rate of bis-(p-nitrophenyl) phosphate (BNPP) and soman (GD) breakdown in buffered aqueous solution.
