Elemans, J. and Boerakker, M.J. and Holder, S.J. and Rowan, A.E. and Cho, W.D. and Percec, V. and Nolte, R.J.M. (2002) Plastic- and liquid-crystalline architectures from dendritic receptor molecules. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 99 (8). pp. 5093-5098. ISSN 0027-8424.
Host molecules with U-shaped receptor cavities have been derivatized at their convex side with two n-hydrocarbon tails (1), two first-generation (2), and two second-generation (3) monodendritic hydrocarbon tails. Although hosts 1 and 2 display plastic-crystalline behavior, evidence suggests that host 3 forms a cubic liquid-crystalline phase. In this phase, molecules of 3 are arranged in spherical supramacromolecular assemblies, in which the receptor cavities are situated in the core and the hydrocarbon tails at the periphery. The 1:1 host-guest complex of 3 with methyl 3,5-dihydroxybenzoate forms a similar liquid-crystalline phase, with the guest included in the core of the assemblies.
