Views in Supramolecular Chemistry will relate contemporary advancements and new intriguing techniques in supramolecular chemistry. In supramolecular chemistry, our goal is to appreciate the molecular chemistry past the covalent bond—the sequence will pay attention to goal-orientated supramolecular chemistry.

If, for example, Hþ are bound preferentially by B, then the conversion of A to B will be promoted by low pH. Preferential Hþ binding by one of the states is determined by the pKa values of ionizable residues. The pKa values are influenced by a large variety of molecular factors, including interactions with other 2 M. Schaefer, H. W. van Vlijmen, and M. Karplus, Adv. Protein Chem. 51, 1 (1998).

All noncovalent interactions within a receptor system that are coupled with negative cooperativity to ligand binding should loosen. To test this conclusion we determined27 by ESI-MS the change in dynamic behavior of the hemoglobin tetramer polypeptide backbone when it binds O2.

Positively Cooperative Binding Probed by NMR Spectroscopy Several peptide ligands, all containing the carboxyl group depicted at the lower right in Fig. 2, were separately bound to the antibiotics. In all cases, a downfield chemical shift of the antibiotic amide NH proton w2 was observed upon ligand binding. A larger limiting downfield shift of w2 indicates a shorter carboxylate to NH hydrogen bond. This hydrogen bond was found to decrease in length as the number of the adjacent hydrogen bonds that aid ligand binding was increased.
