Chemistry and Pharmacology
The functionalized ligands 1 and 2 bearing hydrogen-bonding recognition groups have been synthesized. Their assembly by metal ions such as CuI and PdII having different coordination geometries generates different receptor architectures for the binding of suitable substrates. Addition of the complementary bis(imide) Janus molecules (4-7) to [1a, 2a, CuTf] or to [1b, 2b, Pd(BF4)2] mixtures leads to a moderate selective increase of the fraction of the [(1a)2Cu]+ or [(1b)2Pd]2+ complex depending on the Janus substrate used. Largest enhancements are observed for those Janus substrates that may be expected to display highest geometrical complementarity with the two complexes. These results represent a process directed by target binding based on dynamic combinatorial chemistry.
