Mateus, Pedro; Wicher, Barbara; Ferrand, Yann; Huc, Ivan (2018): Carbohydrate binding through first- and second-sphere coordination within aromatic oligoamide metallofoldamers. In: Chemical Communications, Vol. 54, No. 40: pp. 5078-5081

Aromatic oligoamide capsules that fold upon metal binding recognize carbohydrate guests in solution as evidenced by CD and NMR titrations. Crystallographic data reveal that, besides their structural role, metal ions also contribute to guest recognition through either first- or second-sphere coordination.
