Abstract

Resorcin[4]arene and tetramethylated resorcin[4]arene form complexes with L-carnitine, whose crystal structures were determined. Each complex contains two carnitine ligands in the asymmetric unit, each of which is incorporated into the cavity of the macrocyclic receptor through cation π interactions between the trimethylammonium moiety of the ligand and π-rings of the receptor.
