Abstract

Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is used to probe the binding of small anions to the macrocycle of bambus[6]uril. For the halide ions, the experimental patterns suggest F(-) < Cl(-) < Br(-) < I(-), which is consistent with the order of anion binding found in the condensed phase. Parallel equilibrium studies in the condensed phase establish the association constants of halide anions and bambus[6]uril in mixed solvents. A detailed analysis of the mass spectrometric data is used to shed light on the correlations between the binding constants in the condensed phase and the ion abundances observed using ESI-MS. From the analysis it becomes apparent that ESI-MS can indeed represent the situation in solution to some extent, but the sampling in the gas-phase experiment is not 1:1 compared to that in solution.
