Anion receptor chemistry

What is it about?

This review highlights developments in the supramolecular chemistry of anions in 2011 and 2012.

Why is it important?

There have many advances over the last decade in anion receptor chemistry in moving from systems functioning in organic solvent to functioning in aqueous solution, in moving from discrete sensors to arrays, pattern recognition and highly specific chemodosimeters, in our understanding of hydrogen bonding vs. proton transfer in complexation processes and of the thermodynamics of anion complexation and in the development of transporters and channels that function in cells.
