Zinc's a turn on! The molecular recognition of an asymmetric tetrathiafulvalene (TTF)–calixpyrrole receptor can be reversibly switched between positive and negative cooperativity, when binding 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene (TNB), by chemical stimuli in the form of ZnII (see figure). An intramolecular complexation promotes a preorganized receptor with an increased affinity for TNB with a 237-fold increase in the first complexation (K1).
