Dendronized molecular clips with polyglycerol substituents increase their solubility in protic solvents. Such clips can mimic natural receptors in binding and carrying of biologically relevant substrates. The nature of the substituents dramatically affects the association behavior of molecular clips and several substrates in protic solvents. These effects are quantified by 1H NMR titration.
