Carbohydrate recognition: Enantioselective spirobifluorene diphosphonate receptors

Goutam Das, Andrew D. Hamilton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The mono- and bis-tetrabutylammonium salts of 2-ethyl-spirobifluorene monophosphonate and (±) 2,2'-diethyl-7,7'-didodecyloxy-spirobifluorene diphosphonate respectively, were synthesized and shown to bind strongly to a series of 1-O-octylglycosides in CD3CN.
