Back Cover: Imidazole-Quartet Water and Proton Dipolar Channels (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 48/2011)
Dipolar water wires stabilize quartets of ureido imidazole compounds (I quartets). M. Barboiu et al. describe in their Communication on page 11 366 ff. how this stabilization occurs in a manner reminiscent of the stabilization of guanine (G) quartets by cation templating.
