Alkyl groups fold to fit within a water-soluble cavitand

We report here a widened, deep cavitand host that binds hydrophobic and amphiphilic guests in D2O. Small alkanes (C6 to C11) are bound in compressed conformations and tumble rapidly within the space. Longer n-alkanes (C13 to C14), n-alcohols, and α,ω-diols are taken up in folded conformations. The g...
