Novel Calix[4]arene Based Macrocyclic Heteroditopic Receptor Molecules for Ion-Pair Recognition and Interlocked Molecules Capable of Induced Molecular Motion

Objective

Due to the potential uses that mechanically bonded molecules may have as molecular switches, sensors and machines, the interest being shown in discovering imaginative and high yielding templation methods for their construction and surface assembly is ever increasing. The use of rotaxane and catenane cavities as binding domains for the recognition and sensing of guest species because it remains underdeveloped which is surprising given their unique three-dimensional topological interlocked cavity design. In addition the host-guest binding and the molecular machine like behaviour of such mechanically bonded molecules will be studied.
