(Selective synthesis of rim-differentiated pillararenes to access new applications)
Project led by R. Lavendomme in collab. at ULB with I. Jabin. Pillar[n]arenes are oligomeric macrocycles with a cylindrical cavity and used in various applications, notably as receptors in host-guest chemistry. These macrocycles can bear various chemical functions on both of their rims that are necessary for specific applications. Yet, it is challenging to introduce different functions on each rim with decent yields, thus limiting the number of applications available. This project aims to develop new methods to prepare rim-differentiated pillararenes selectively and explore the applications only accessible to these rim-differentiated macrocycles.
