Recent Advances in the Applications of Water‐soluble Resorcinarene‐based Deep Cavitands
Volume: 11, Issue: 6
Published: Jun 1, 2022
We review here the use of container molecules known as cavitands for performing organic reactions in water. Central to these endeavors are binding forces found in water, and among the strongest of these is the hydrophobic effect. We describe how the hydrophobic effect can be used to drive organic molecule guests into the confined space of cavitand hosts. Other forces participating in guest binding include cation−π interactions, chalcogen bonding...
