Thermodynamically-controlled transesterification of a predisposed cinchonidine building block with a more flexible extended quinine monomer leads to a combinatorial mixture of 11 macrocyclic receptors which is analysed by electrospray mass spectrometry; similar results with alkaloid-cholate mixtures demonstrate the generality of the approach.
