Nitrones undergo dynamic exchange in chloroform at room temperature through two mechanisms-hydrolysis and recombination or hydroxylamine addition/elimination; this dynamic exchange is harnessed to select a nitrone-based bis(amidopyridine) receptor for diacids from a group of four nitrones through its binding to a glutaric acid-based target.
