Driving Forces for Supramolecular Encapsulation in Water

  • For explaining association phenomena in aqueous solution, whether between a macrocyclic host and an encapsulated guest or between a biological receptor and its corresponding ligand, one should understand the driving forces. The present doctoral thesis describes the supramolecular chemistry of different host-guest systems. Besides contributing to the fundamental understanding of the hydrophobic, fluorophilic, and chaotropic effect, the results have implications for a wide range of applications: supramolecular sensors, hydrocarbon and perfluorinated molecules separation and purification, and the efficient removal of such guest molecules from aqueous solution.
