Evaluation of Metal Cation Complexation Properties of Cage-annulated Macrocyclic Hosts via Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry (ESI-MS)

A. P. Marchand, J. S. Brodbelt and K. Mlinarić-Majerski


Electrospray ionization-mass spectrometric (ESI-MS) methods have been used to study metal cation complexation properties of a variety of oxygen-, nitrogen- and/or sulfur-containing cage-annulated macrocyclic host ligands, many of which have potentially important analytical, biomedical and/or environmental applications.
