Abstract:The interactions of neutral polar molecules with synthetic (macrocyclic) hosts are described. Extraction, NMR spectroscopy, polarography, and membrane transport studies have been carried out in order to understand these interactions. A step-wise process is described in which ultimately a general approach for a rational design of hosts is obtained. This approach has finally led to the first transfer of urea across a membrane by a neutral host (carrier) in which binding sites are placed in such a way that all possible interactions with urea are indeed used.
