Inclusion complexes of atrazines with cucurbiturils

What is it about?

Preliminary investigation of inclusion complexes of ametryne and atrazine with three hosts, cucurbit[n]uril (n=6- 8). The complexes were prepared by freeze drying and were characterized by a number of techniques, such as NMR, IR, XRD and mass spectrometry.

Why is it important?

This is a study preceding formulation of pesticides for application in pest control.
