Just one click! A covalent capture strategy allows for the highly selective monofunctionalization of a calix[6]arene core (see figure). It is based on a Michaelis–Menten enzyme mimic with key factors governing the reactivity, such as substrate/reactant pre-association and pre-organization and cavity embedment. With alcohol substrates, it is shown that product self-coordination can be controlled by a competing exogenous ligand.
