Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we show that a thiourea-functionalized terpyridine unit can be induced to form, in the presence of ruthenium (II), a well-ordered recognition site for dicarboxylate ions. Strong binding to the self-assembled receptor can be followed by 1H NMR in DMSO and association constants of >104 M-1 were measured in certain cases.
