Selective synthesis of rim-differentiated pillar[6]arenes to access new applications

(Selective synthesis of rim-differentiated pillar[6]arenes to access new applications)

Units : High Resolution Nuclear Magnetic Resonance | ULB707

Description :

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 pillar[6]arenes selectively and
explore the applications only accessible to these rim-differentiated macrocycles.
