Chiral Recognition of Tetrahelicene Dicarboxylic Acid by Linear Dextrins
Recognition of the helicity of 1,12-dimethylbenzo[c]phenanthrene-5,8-dicarboxylic acid (<B>1</B>) by linear oligosaccharides has been studied by <SUP>1</SUP>H NMR spectroscopy and capillary zone electrophoresis. Both methods, clearly indicate that maltotetraose, maltopentaose, maltohexaose, and maltoheptaose selectively complex with the (<I>M</I>)-isomer of <B>1</B> as a guest through hydrogen-bonding interaction in water.
