A new molecular tweezer receptor Hc1 based on hyodeoxycholic acid has been synthesized and its binding properties were accessed by1H NMR and isothermal titration calorimetry experiments. Molecular tweezer Hc1 shows a high selectivity toward F-over Cl-, Br-, I-, and H2PO4-. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
