A supramolecular porous nanosphere is constructed from amphiphilic cholic acid-modified cyclodextrin triggered by guest sodium 1-naphthylamino-4-sulfonate and is comprehensively characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), light scattering, transmission electron microscopy, and gas adsorption experiments. The results obtained show that the porous nanosphere with the radius of 25-35 nm has moderate nitrogen adsorption ability. Further NMR, circular dichroism, and the fluorimetric titrations on the self-assembling behavior in aqueous solution reveal that the substituting group of the guest molecule and pH values are the key to induce the formation of the porous nanosphere.

    ABSTRACT: Two beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) derivatives bearing steroid groups (1 and 2) were synthesized by the condensation of mono(6-aminoethylamino-6-deoxy)-beta-CD with cholic acid and deoxycholic acid, respectively, and their original conformations and binding behavior to the organic anion of naphthalenesulfonate derivatives were investigated by using 1H NMR spectroscopy and spectrofluorometric titration in combination with computational methods. The 2D NMR experiments reveal that the steroid groups attached to the beta-CD rim could be deeply embedded in the beta-CD cavity to form the intramolecular (for 1) or intermolecular (for 2) inclusion complexes in aqueous solution. Upon complexation with naphthalenesulfonate derivatives, modified beta-CDs display two obviously different binding modes, that is, the competitive inclusion mode and the induced-fit inclusion mode, which is consistent with the results of molecular modeling study. The two modes and the strict size/shape fitting relationship between the hosts and guests reasonably explain the different binding behaviors and molecular selectivity of host beta-CDs 1 and 2 toward the naphthalenesulfonate guests. Therefore, the cholic acid- or deoxycholic acid-modified beta-CDs could effectively recognize the size/shape of guest molecules as compared with the parent beta-CD, giving good molecular selectivity up to 24.9 for the disodium 2,6-naphthalenedisulfonate/disodium 1,5-naphthalenedisulfonate pair by the host 1.

    ABSTRACT: Three naphthalene-modified cyclodextrins (CDs) 3–5 were synthesized as supramolecular chiral photosensitizing hosts for enantiodifferentiating photoisomerization of (Z,Z)-1,3-cyclooctadiene (1ZZ) to its E,Z-isomer (1EZ). In aqueous methanolic solutions, β-CD-based sensitizer 4 binds 1ZZ in its chiral cavity much more strongly than α- and γ-CD homologues 3 and 5. Accelerated, often static, fluorescence quenching of these naphthalene-modified CDs was observed upon inclusion of 1ZZ. The photoisomerization of 1ZZ mediated by 3–5 yielded enantiomeric 1EZ in modest yields. The enantiomeric excesses (ee’s) obtained with α- and β-CD-based sensitizers 3 and 4, both of which have relatively small cavities, are less sensitive to temperature, demonstrating the low-entropy nature of the α- and β-CD complexes. In contrast, increasing reaction temperature significantly diminished the product’s ee and even caused a switching of enantioselectivity upon photoisomerization sensitized by γ-CD-based 5, revealing that the entropy factor plays a crucial role in the wide cavity of γ-CD.
