The need for environmentally safe practices has skyrocketed within the past few years, as soil and water are subject to transition metal accumulation. One way to deal with these contaminations is by use of peraza-crown macrocycles as ligands to remove these metals. Our project focuses on a unique synthesis of the peraza-crown macrocycle that avoids the common use of a metal skeleton. Through the use of the quinoxaline subunit, we are able to greatly increase the binding properties of the peraza-crown macrocycle and the rigidity of the overall molecule.
