Abstract

Room for a small one: A series of [1,3,5]cyclophane-based receptors incorporating triazine, cyanuric acid, or boroxine rings are predicted to strongly complex fluoride ions by a combination of anion-π interactions and ion-pair reinforced hydrogen bonding, while size-excluding the larger chloride anion. The top view of a calculated structure of the triazine cage with an included fluoride ion is shown. (Figure Presented).
