Its crystal structure shows a central cavity with a diameter of 1.96 Å and a depth of 6.75 Å. A Na+ ion could rest in the cavity center but prefers core binding to external binding in one of the crown units. An intramolecular kinetic equilibrium was reached with the Na+ ion switching between the two crown units with an energy barrier of 14.1 ± 3 kcal/mol.||Source Title:||Organic Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/93030||ISSN:||15237060||DOI:||10.1021/ol026780t|
