A self-assembling receptor for dicarboxylic acids

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we describe a simle binding subunit that self-assembles in the presence of metal ions to form a receptor for dicarboxylic acids. The resultant binding site is chiral and strong complexation to dicarboxylic acids in CDCl3 can be detected by both NMR and UV-vis spectroscopies.
