Abstract

2018 by the authors. The host-guest interaction of a series of cyclohexyl-appended guests with cucurbit[8]uril (Q[8] ) was studied by 1 H NMR spectroscopy, isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), and X-ray crystallography. The X-ray structure revealed that two cycloalkane moieties can be simultaneously encapsulated in the hydrophobic cavity of the Q[8] host to form a ternary complex for the first time.
