The synthesis of a bidentate halogen bonding receptor and a nearly isostructural hydrogen bonding analogue is described. Crystal structures reveal the interactions of each receptor with anions in the solid state, while NMR titrations elucidate bidentate binding and association constants in solution. Of the two, the halogen bonding receptor demonstrates stronger, water resistant halide binding in competitive solvents.
