Abstract

Dendrimers as guests: Dendrimers containing a single 4,4′-bipyridinium residue covalently attached to the focal points of carboxylate-terminated dendrons are strongly complexed by cucurbit[7]uril in aqueous solution (see schematic representation). The complexation has been monitored and quantified by NMR spectroscopic, UV/Vis spectroscopic, and mass spectometric techniques.
