Abstract

A series of tripodal receptors preorganize electron-deficient aromatic rings to bind halides in organic solvents using weak σ anion-to-arene interactions or C-H⋯X- hydrogen bonds. 1H NMR spectroscopy proves to be a powerful technique for quantifying binding in solution and determining the interaction motifs, even in cases of weak binding.
