  1. 1. New Molecular Tweezers for Anion Recognition Jose M. Hermida Ramón and Carlos M. Estévez Department of Physical Chemistry. Facultade de Químicas. Universidade de Vigo. Goal = to design molecular tweezers with their MEP in the concave side more positive than the concave one, which can hold anions. Methods : DFT/6-31+G* geometry optimizations. Truhlar’s functional MPW1B95. 2 Counterpoise for BSSE on the complexes optimized geometries. Proposed molecular tweezer Complexation with halide anions Cl - Br - I -  E complex = -29.47 kcal mol -1 E deformation = 2.73 kcal mol -1  E complex = -26.45 kcal mol -1 E deformation = 2.79 kcal mol -1  E complex = -26.14 kcal mol -1 E deformation = 2.04 kcal mol -1 References: 1 Hermida-Ramón, J.

MEP in the molecular plane MEP in the center of the cavity Klärner´s molecular tweezers: can bind to electrodeficient molecules After fluorine substitution, can hold anions. 1 The MEP in the concave side is almost neutral and less positive than in the convex one. 1 I -  E complex , complexation energies (corrected for BSSE), slightly larger that the corresponding ones for cation complexes with Klärner´s molecular tweezers. 3 F O concave side MEP > convex side MEP
