Molecular inclusion reactions between metal complexes of azo complexons and α-cyclodextrin in aqueous solution
Kinetics of the molecular inclusion reactions of the azo complexons and their metal complexes with α- and β-cyclodextrins (α- and β-CDx) were studied in aqueous solution by means of a spectrophotometric and a stopped-flow method. The acid dissociation of the azo complexons was regulated by the inclusion with CDx. Two-step process was observed for the interaction of α-cyclodextrin with LH3− species of the azo complexons and with the metal complexes.

- 7).The1H NMR study showed that α-CDx interacts with the azo-sulfanilate moiety. The downfield shifts of the signals of H8, H9, H11, and H12 protons by the inclusion into α-CDx cavity were very large as compared with those of H2, H2a-3b (methylene groups), H5a-5c(R:propyl group), and H6.Google Scholar
- 8).The inclusion at A-site takes place only when the motional freedom of the iminodiacetate group in LH3− is frozen owing to the formation of the intramolecular hydrogen bond between the amino proton (NH+), the phenolate (−O−), and two carboxylate (−COO−) groups of the ligand. This freezing of the motional freedom of the iminodiacetate group in MLH− is observed in the complexation of metal ions with these donor groups of the ligand.Google Scholar
