The design and synthesis of anion receptors of technical and biochemical significance is receiving more and more attention.1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8Currently, effective binding and selective phase transfer of the oxoanions pertechnetate and perrhenate is of considerable interest from different point of view. Due to its long half-life and environmental mobility, the radioactive pertechnetate is one of the most hazardous contaminants. In this context, effective and selective separation processes are of utmost importance.9, 10, 11, 12 On the other hand, there are some emerging possibilities for the application of the radiochemically active oxoanions pertechnetate and perrhenate in nuclear medicine.13,14 The most commonly used isotope in diagnostic nuclear medicine 99mTc is readily available from a 99Mo/99mTc generator system.15, 16, 17, 18, 19 Likewise, the β-emitting 188Re - discussed as one of the most interesting radionuclides for specific therapeutic applications — is conveniently produced by a 188W/188Re generator.20, 21, 22 In both cases the radionuclides are available as oxoanions in isotonic solut ion, and it appears highly desirable to directly complex 99mTcO 4 and 188ReO 4 as they exist in the generator eluate itself. But, the binding of such large, lowly charged anions is a difficult venture. The enthalpic contribution for complexation is rather small. Hence, host compounds being capable to encapsulate these oxoanions are of great interest.
