Summary Three conformationally preorganised host molecules based on the [3]polynorbornyl framework and incorporating di-urea receptors were synthesised and their interaction with a series of anions investigated by 1H NMR spectroscopy. A high affinity of each host molecule for dihydrogenphosphate (H2PO4–) and dihydrogenpyrophosphate (H2P2O72–) was identified. In addition to binding to the urea receptors of the host molecules, evidence for an interaction involving the non-polar C–H groups within the binding cavity of the framework and guest anions was also discovered. Furthermore, an unusual 2 : 1 host-to-anion stoichiometry was indicated when binding H2P2O72–, and a model for the anion-mediated self-assembly of this complex species is proposed.
