Abstract

Multicomponent sensing in complex matrices with synthetic pores became feasible with the introduction of amplifiers. Amplifiers are defined as molecules that can covalently capture undetectable analytes after enzymatic signal generation and drag them into the pore for transduction. Here, we introduce converters as molecules that can shift the reactivity of amplifiers in situ to capture chemoorthogonal analytes. For this purpose, a series of dialkoxynaphthalene (DAN) and dialkoxyanthracene (DAA) hydrazinoboronic acids was prepared in situ from DAN and DAA hydrazides and formylphenylboronic acids. These converted amplifiers efficiently inactivate synthetic pores with internal naphthalenediimide clamps. This pore inactivation by DAN and DAA hydrazinoboronic acids vanishes in the presence of catechols such as (+)-catechin, presumably because the obtained boronate esters are too large to bind within the synthetic beta-barrel pore or because they prefer to partition into the bilayer membrane. The resulting increase in pore activity with increasing catechol concentration at constant amplifier concentration is shown to be compatible with the sensing of polyphenols in green tea.
