Abstract

Confocal Raman microspectrometry is used to probe, for the first time, the transport of guest molecules along the one-dimensional tunnels in a crystalline urea inclusion compound under conditions of guest exchange in which new guest molecules are introduced simultaneously at both ends of the urea tunnel structure. We focus on the system comprising 1,8-dibromooctane as the original type of guest and pentadecane as the new type of guest, and results are presented for experiments in which the guest exchange process is probed both ex situ and in situ. The Raman data, recorded as a function of position along the tunnel direction and, in the case of the in situ experiments, as a function of time, demonstrate that pentadecane guest molecules enter the tunnels at both ends of the crystal and that transport of guest molecules occurs in both directions along the crystal. Mechanistic aspects of this bidirectional transport process are discussed, particularly in relation to the corresponding process for unidirectional transport of guest molecules in urea inclusion compounds reported previously.
