In acetone-d6 solution, 1H n.m.r. spectroscopy reveals that receptors 4-9, prepared from the readily-synthesised diazadibenzo-30-crown-10 derivative 1, form strong 1:1 molecular inclusion complexes with Diquat, which, although present mainly as the dication, is accompanied by trace amounts of the radical cation.
