Abstract

Cyclic peptoids are macrocyclic N‐substituted oligoglycines, with remarkable structural, chemical and physical properties. The gas adsorption properties of a permanently porous hexameric cyclopeptoid decorated with four propargyl and two methoxyethyl side chains were monitored by in situ X‐ray powder diffraction (XRPD). High‐resolution XRPD data together with Rietveld and density functional based tight binding (DFTB) method allowed us to locate propyne guest molecules inside the host channels, even though the powder sample contains more than one phase. We were able to characterize the host‐guest interactions, providing useful information on the host recognition sites and discuss host adaptiveness and host–guest chemical affinity in comparison with analogous compounds.
