Complex Formation of 1,6-Anhydro-β-Maltose and Sodium Ions Using Single-Crystal X-Ray Crystallography and NMR Spectroscopy

Complex formation of 1,6-anhydro-β-maltose and sodium ions was characterized using single-crystal X-ray crystallography and solution- and solid-state NMR spectroscopy. The 7-coordination structure, comprising two 1,6-anhydro-β-maltoses, a thiocyanate ion and a sodium ion, was identified in the crystal of the complex, where a sodium ion was positioned in the center of the pentagon. In the NMR study, the line broadening of 23Na signals and the decrease of the spin-lattice relaxation times (T1) of 23Na were observed in CD3OD in the presence of 1,6-anhydro-β-maltose, indicating complex formation.
