Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
A high yielding (93%), regiospecific synthesis of cis(4,4′)-di(carbomethoxybenzo)-30-crown-10 (1c) is reported. The derived crown ether diol 1d was converted to pyridyl cryptand 12 in 44% yield by reaction with pyridine-2,6-dicarbonyl chloride. Binding of two different 4,4′-bipyridinium (paraquat) species (3) and 2,2′-bipyridinium (diquat) 4 by 12 was explored via 1H NMR spectroscopy, NOE experiments, mass spectrometry, X-ray crystallographic analyses, and isothermal titration calorimetry. Cryptand 12 exhibits the highest association constant for diquat ever reported (Ka = 1.9 × 106 M−1) and very high association constants for paraquats (Ka > 105 M−1) in acetone at 22 °C. The binding constant of diquat 4 by cryptand 12 is nearly 6-times higher than any other reported host.
