Description/Abstract

Two cleft-like anion receptors have been synthesised that contain indole hydrogen-bond donors and show fluoride selectively in a DMSO–water solution with crystallographic studies showing a ‘twisted’ binding mode for fluoride in the solid state. Twisted structures have long been of particular interest to the supramolecular chemistry community. From early work on metal templated helices1 through more recent work on foldamers2 and organic helical structures,3 these species are not only elegantly designed but can also play roles in molecular recognition and sensing.
