Tran NT, Wilson SO, Franz AK. Supramolecular hydrogen-bonding assembly of silanediols with bifunctional heterocycles. Chem Commun (Camb). 2014;.
X-ray crystallography showcases the distinct self-association and hydrogen-bonding patterns of organic silanediols, R2Si(OH)2, with bifunctional heterocycles for supramolecular assembly. Diffusion-ordered spectroscopy (DOSY) studies identify the dominant hydrogen-bonding patterns and structures in solution, which correlate with solid-state patterns at high concentrations.
