Rapid Single Crystal Growth via Guest Displacement From Host-guest Complexes
The preparation of single crystals of sparingly soluble polycyclic aromatic compounds in MeCN is facilitated by solubilizing ionic host-guest complexation under otherwise poor solvent conditions. The guest is then crystallized within minutes through controlled guest displacement from the host via competitor equilibria, or over days through direct crystallization of the host-guest complex itself.
