Benzimidazole-based anion receptors exhibiting selectivity for lactate over pyruvate

Hiscock, Jennifer R., Gale, Philip A., Lalaoui, Noémie, Light, Mark E. and Wells, Neil J. (2012) Benzimidazole-based anion receptors exhibiting selectivity for lactate over pyruvate Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry, 10, (38), pp. 7780-7788. (doi:10.1039/C2OB26299A).

Record type: Article


The influence of anions on tautomerism in benzimidazole containing anion receptors has been studied via a variety of techniques in both solution and the solid state. The results show that hydrogen bonding interactions between the receptors and guests have a significant effect of the nature of the tautomer present. The compounds show a preference for complexation of lactate over pyruvate.
