Chiral Molecular Receptors Based on Trans-Cyclohexane-1,2- Diamine

Pp. 51-100 (50)

Ignacio Alfonso


This review highlights the development of new receptors based on enantiopure trans-cyclohexane-1,2-diamine, a chiral building block presenting unique structural and conformational properties. Different architectures sharing this structural motif, which were prepared following several synthetic approaches, have been summarized from the recent literature.
