Neutral anion receptors working in highly demanding solvents are new materials being sought. Benzopyrroles are more acidic than amides and pyrrole itself, and are promising building blocks in the design of host compounds. A whole series of receptors based upon benzopyrroles were synthesized and evaluated. They include carbazole, dipyrrolonaph-thalene, and 7-aminoindole-based hosts. Most of them demonstrate moderate binding affinities in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and have good selectivity toward tetrahedral oxyanions. Recently, a group of receptors utilizing 7-aminoindole and urea moieties proved to work in a very competitive solvent—methanol.
