Extending the hydrogen-bonding array in ortho-phenylenediamine based bis-ureas

Brooks, S.J., Gale, P.A. and Light, M.E. (2007) Extending the hydrogen-bonding array in ortho-phenylenediamine based bis-ureas Supramolecular Chemistry, 19, (1-2), pp. 9-15. (doi:10.1080/10610270600879076).

Record type: Article


Two new ortho-phenylenediamine based bis-urea compounds have been synthesized with pendant amide groups. The stability constants of the new compounds with a variety of anionic guests have been measured by 1H NMR titration techniques and compared to the parent bis-urea. The X-ray crystal structure of the acetate and benzoate complexes of a bis-amide functionalized system have been solved and reveal the receptor forming a dimer with two anions bound at the termini of the hydrogen bonded assembly.
