Tetrakis(diisopropyl amide) substituted norbornadiene and quadricyclane are highly barium selective ligands
Tetrakis(diisopropyl amide) substituted norbornadiene and quadricyclane derivatives were investigated for their extraction and transport capabilities with alkaline earth metal cations. Both amides exhibited a remarkably high preference of Ba2+ over any other alkali metal or alkaline earth cation. The binding geometries were determined by quantum chemical DFT calculations.
