Recognition by strapped system: Cryptand-type calixpyrrole are shown to exhibit a highly enhanced affinity towards anionic guests as compared to other reported calixpyrroles (see figure). The results obtained provide some insights as to how calixpyrrole-based anion receptors may be designed to achieve higher affinity and selectivity.
