Improved Binding of Adenine by a Synthetic Receptor

Steven C. Zimmerman, Zijian Zeng

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new synthesis of molecular tweezers of type 1 is more efficient and general, and allows access to 3, a receptor whose structure is closer to being optimized for adenine binding. Receptor 3 binds adenine in chloroform with Kassoc > 105 M-1.
