Synthesis Of Facial Amphiphile 3,7-Diamino-5Α-Cholestane Derivatives As A Molecular Receptor, Md Wasi Ahmad, Young Mee Jung, Sharaf Nawaz Khan, Hong Seok Kim

Dr. Mohammad Wasi Ahmad (Md Wasi Ahmad)

A series of facial amphiphiles 3,7-diaminocholestane were synthesized from 3,7-diketocholestane via 2 sequential reductive aminations and anion recognition was evaluated with acetate, chloride, bromide, fluoride and phosphate anions. The stereo-selective reductive amination protocol was utilized to synthesized facial amphiphiles afforded receptors in high yields. The molecular receptor 2 showed the highest binding constant with acetate in a 1:1 ratio.
