 Title: Part I. Molecular tweezers: Role of preorganization and synthetic progress toward a water soluble tweezer. Part II. Progress towards an empirical approach to carbohydrate recognition Author(s): Baloga, Monica Helaine Doctoral Committee Chair(s): Zimmerman, Steven C. Department / Program: Chemistry Discipline: Chemistry Degree Granting Institution: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Degree: Ph.D. Genre: Dissertation Subject(s): Chemistry, Organic Abstract: Part I. Three molecular tweezers have been synthesized to determine the role of preorganization in the host-guest complexation of these systems. The synthesis of these tweezers was accomplished by the reaction of their respective dibromo-pyrylium salts with an absolute ethanol/aqueous ammonium hydroxide solution followed by a lithium/halogen exchange and addition of dimethoxyacridone chromophores. Tweezers 11-13 have zero, one, and two additional degrees of free rotation, respectively, which lessens the enforced syn cofacial orientation of the diacridine chromophores and the overall rigidity of the system. $\sp1$H NMR binding studies indicate an increase in the association constant (K$\sb{a}$) with the increase in rigidity. The effects of increasing rigidity are additive with $\rm\Delta\Delta G\sp\circ\sb{13\to11}=2\Delta\Delta G\sp\circ\sb{13\to12}$ = 1.8 kcal$\cdot$mol$\sp{-1}$. Thus, the enforced syn orientation of 11 provides no special benefit other than its role in preorganizing the host.In addition, progress towards the synthesis of a water soluble molecular tweezer containing unsubstituted phenanthridinium chromophores is described.Part II. Several classes of guest molecules present a complex three dimensional array of hydrogen bond donor and acceptor groups. In such cases a more empirical approach to host design may be most effective. We describe a rapid synthesis of bis(amidonaphthyridine) receptors by Friedlander condensations using various diketone precursors (i.e. 1,3-diacetyl benzene and 1,1$\sp\prime$-diacetyl ferrocene) and 2,6-diaminopyridine-3-carboxaldehyde (36). Complexation studies are reported including HPLC analysis of these receptors on glucose-bonded stationary phases.
