Pocketing metals with alkynes: The spectral responses of the peralkynylated heteroacenes hexaethynylquinoxaline and octaethynylphenazine (see structure; N blue, C red, H yellow) on the presence of metal cations are more-pronounced for the phenazine derivative, demonstrating that the presence of the lateral alkyne substituents improves the metal-ion-binding capability of the pyrazine motif.
