Investigating the Nature of π-Stacking – Development of Rebek Imide-Type Model Systems

Intermolecular interactions play a key role in a number of interdisciplinary fields. The goal of this project is the design, development and synthesis of model systems to investigate host-guest binding. Complexation studies of a Rebek imide-type host with planar pyridine-based guests will provide knowledge of the nature of π-stacking, combined with hydrogen bonding.
