Abstract

Chiral cyclohexanohemicucurbit[n]urils (n = 6, 8) (cycHCs) are able to bind guests through multiple "outer surface interactions", which in the case of planar zinc porphyrins leads to induction of chirality. Crystal structures of complexes of complementary sized hosts revealed social self-sorting, while in the solution phase one cycHC can accommodate up to three porphyrin molecules with log Ktotal 9.
