Abstract: A newly synthesized tripodal amide receptor for the recognition of planar anions such as nitrate and acetate is described. The tripodal host, L1, features a 1,3,5-substituted 2,4,6-trimethylbenzene scaffold bearing three convergent amide hydrogen bonding functionality and electron-withdrawing p-cyanobenzoyl terminals. The single-crystal X-ray crystallographic analysis on crystals obtained upon complexation of L1 with tetrabutylammonium nitrate in acetone shows the encapsulation of two NO3¯ ions inside the staggered dimeric capsular assembly of L1. On the other hand, complexation with tetrabutylammonium acetate in the same solvent system shows non-capsular recognition of acetate and a water molecule inside the receptor bowl. The p-cyano substitution in the aryl terminals assists the formation of dimeric capsular assembly of L1 by enhancing the hydrogen bonding tendency of the aryl C-H protons. Though L1 demonstrates capsule formation upon complexation with NO3¯, the geometrically similar AcO¯ shows non-capsular recognition in the solid state, which may be due the structural difference between the two anions.
