Abstract

Three 13aneN4 macrocyclic ligands have been prepared bearing a -CH2NHR side arm (R = H, n-C5H11, n-C10H21) on a carbon atom. When Cu2+ is complexed in the macrocyclic ring, the amino group of the side arm undergoes an acid-base protonation equilibrium but it is not able to coordinate apically the metal cation even when it is deprotonated. The Cu2+ complex with the ligand bearing the longest appended aliphatic chain is fully confined inside Triton X-100 micelles, and its ability to bind and sequestrate a series of anions inside micelles has been studied at two different pH values, i.e. both with protonated and neutral side-arm amino group. The favourable role played by the protonated amino group in the side arm has been demonstrated
