A chromogenic molecular capsule attributable to dipolar amide resonance structure

5 March, 2015 - 23:17

Chem. Commun., 2015, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C4CC10412A, CommunicationYeon Sil Park, Juwan Park, Kyungsoo Paek
A new chromogenic, self-assembled molecular capsule G@22 is developed by introducing four (N,N-dimethyl-4-aminophenyl) azobenzyl moieties on the upper rim of a resorcin[4]arene-based amidoimino-cavitand. The tuning of conjugation between amido and (N,N-dimethyl-4-aminophenyl)azobenzyl groups by acid-base titration allows naked-eye observation of molecular capsule formation.
