Abstract

The interaction of a tetracationic calixarene (TAC4) with dianionic guest (BS) in water was studied with NMR, nano-ITC and ESI-MS experiments; the convergent evidence provided by these different techniques shows that the addition of a suitable guest molecule triggers the formation of a homodimeric capsule in aqueous neutral solution.
