Abstract

Abkapselungstendenzen: Die Cyclooligomerisierung von Resorcin und einem hoch fluorierten Aldehyd ergab das Resorcinaren 1F mit „Teflonfüßen“, das sich in wasserhaltigen fluorigen Solventien unter Bildung von hexameren Kapseln löst. Infolge fluorophober Effekte verlief die Einkapselung (beispielsweise von acht Benzolmolekülen, siehe Bild) in den supramolekularen Kapseln in fluorigen Solventien selektiver und/oder leichter.
