Abstract

Notwithstanding its small dimensions, the narrow cavity of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene macrocycle is still able to host alkylammonium guests in the presence of the tetrakis[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]borate (TFPB−) weakly coordinating (or “superweak”) anion. As an artificial analogue of biological receptors, cone-shaped calix[4]arene 1d is able to recognize a n-BuNH3+ guest mainly through a 4-fold cation−π interaction aided by a weak H-bonding interaction. This recognition motif can be used to assembly a 2:1 capsular architecture with a linear diammonium axle
