1, 3-Bis-(3-arylureido)adamantane receptors, bearing phenyl (5, 6), 1-naphthyl (7, 8) and 9-anthryl (9) fluorophore, were synthesized. Their ability for complexation with F-, Cl-, Br-, OAc-, NO3- HSO4-, and H2PO4- in solution was investigated by UV-vis and fluorescence spectrophotometry. The binding was compared to that of 2-naphthyl bisurea derivatives with flexible spacers (bearing propylene or pentalene, 2 and 4) and rigid adamantane analogues (1 and 3). In solution, the receptors form stable complexes with all anions except with NO3-. The complexation ability in CH3CN correlates with the basicity of anion and the acidity of the urea N-H, whereas in DMSO the complexes stability variations are less pronounced. The X-ray structure of receptor 1 indicates that incorporation of the adamantane moiety preorganizes the receptor in a tweezer-like conformation for the optimal formation of hydrogen bonding network and high selectivity for H2PO4- anion. Incorporation of the methylene spacers between the adamantane and the urea additionally increases stability of the complexes with anions. X-ray structural analysis was performed on the following complexes: 1∙Bu4NH2PO4, 3∙Bu4NH2PO4, 5∙Bu4NH2PO4∙4H2O, and 5∙Bu4NOAc∙3H2O. All H2PO4- complexes include extensive receptor•••H2PO4- hydrogen bonds, essential for the anion recognition, as well as H2PO4-•••H2PO4- hydrogen bonds.
