Abstract: Described in this study is a conceptually new class of five-fold-symmetric cavity-containing planar pentameric macrocycles with their interior decorated by five convergently aligned, properly spaced carbonyl oxygen atoms. These cation-binding oxygens enclose a hydrophilic lumen of 2.85 Å in radius and thus display high-affinity binding toward alkali metal cations, and possibly many other cations, too. Arising from their high-affinity recognition of metal ions, these planar macrocycles form cation- or ion-pair-induced one-dimensional columnar aggregates, and subsequently fascinating fibrillation results. © 2011 American Chemical Society.
