Abstract

The application of X-ray crystallography, mass spectrometry, and NMR and UV-VIS spectroscopy has revealed that bis-p-phenylene-34-crown-10 1 forms strong 1:1 complexes with the 4,4'-bipyridinium dication 3(2+) and two of its derivatives, namely, the dications 4(2+) and 5(2+) in which the substituents on the bipyridine nitrogen atoms are, respectively, 2-hydroxyethyl and 2-(2-hydroxyethoxy)ethyl groups.
