Abstract:There is currently no common framework to discuss the quality of these more complex multi-component recognition systems. Part 2 of this dissertation reports undesired, cross-recognition in several commonly used triply and quadruply hydrogen-bonded complexes to assess the likelihood of orthogonal recognition. Modeling of the equilibria in several multi-component systems allows us to introduce a framework for discussing fidelity and the requirements for producing complex supramolecular systems capable of programmed self assembly.
