    Abstract

    A new synthetic lectin features apolar surfaces provided by two different aromatic components (biphenyl and pyrenyl). Affinities up to 260 M-1 are recorded for carbohydrates in water. The desymmetrised design has potential for variation to give receptors with a broadened range of capabilities.
