A peptidomimetic compound undergoes a reversible single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformation upon guest release/uptake with the transformation involving a drastic conformational change. The extensive and reversible alteration in the solid state is connected to the formation of an unprecedented "CH-π zipper" which can reversibly open and close (through the formation of CH-π interactions), thus allowing for guest sensing.

Abstract

A peptidomimetic compound undergoes a reversible single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformation upon guest release/uptake with the transformation involving a drastic conformational change. The extensive and reversible alteration in the solid state is connected to the formation of an unprecedented "CH-π zipper" which can reversibly open and close (through the formation of CH-π interactions), thus allowing for guest sensing.
