Addicted to caffeine? The caffeine molecule is strongly held in a 1:1 complex with the first artificial C3-symmetrical caffeine receptor 1, which is based on functionalized triphenylene ketals. Molecular recognition by this receptor involves hydrogen bonds and ?-donor??-acceptor stacking, as shown by 1H NMR spectroscopic experiments and a crystal structure analysis.
