Abstract

The first water-soluble biphen[4]arene containing eight carboxylato moieties (carboxylatobiphen[4]arene, CBP4) has been synthesized. Selective molecular recognition of acetylcholine (ACh) against choline (Ch) and betaine (Bt) and pH-responsive host-guest complexation in aqueous media are described.
